The Event Menu is where you can edit and manage each and every event on Any.do! Opening the menu can be done from the Calendar View, when creating a new event, or by tapping on an existing event. 

Events in your calendar have several properties including: Name, time, location, recurrence, invitees, alarm, notes, assigned calendar, and duration. These can all be easily edited straight from Any.do on the mobile apps without any need to open your calendar native app.
