The Event Menu

What is it?

The Event Menu is where you can view, edit and manage any event you have on the Calendar View. Easily create a new event, or edit an event that has been synced from your native calendar app, straight from your Any.do mobile app!

Who can access?

  • Both Premium and Free users can take advantage of this feature!

How does it work?

  • The Event Menu can be opened from the Calendar View, by tapping on an existing event. On mobile, it will also open when creating a new event.
  • Events in your calendar have several properties including: Name, time, location, recurrence, invitees, alarm, notes, assigned calendar, and duration. 
  • On mobile, event properties can be edited, and sync back to your native calendar app. 
  • On desktop, the Event Menu is displayed in read-only mode, showing the existing event properties.
