Office 356 (iOS 6) - Create an Event

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

The following document explains how to create a new event using the iOS Calendar app (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch).

  1. In iPhone Calendar, tap on the [+] icon in the top-right of the iPhone Calendar display.

  • Note: in newer versions of IOS, this option is located in the bottom-right of the screen instead

  • An Add Event display will appear. Fill in the fields as you wish.
  • Note the Calendar field. This field will initially show the calendar you have set as your default in the iPhone Calendar Settings (see Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> Calendars -> Default Calendar to confirm the current default calendar). Modify the calendar when you create a new event by tapping on the calendar shown and selecting from the resulting display your choice for the calendar to which you want the event to belong.
  • After filling in the fields, tap on the blue Done button to save the event. The Add Event display will go away and you can confirm that the event has been created by navigating to a view that shows the day on which you created it.
