    • Specify a Start and End time, or check the box if this is an all-day event.

      Note: Information you add to this box doesn’t appear in event invitations. If you plan to send invitations, add the location information to the Notes box.

      Caution: Notes are included in invitations. Don’t include information that you don’t want others to see if you plan to send invitations out with this event.

    • Add a Web Address, such as a restaurant web page if you are dining out.

    • A reminder is sent 15 minutes before the event start time. If you want to change this, expand the Reminder section and make adjustments.

      Note: Your email choices are those listed in your Yahoo! account. To add or remove addresses, click the gear button to open your account page. On your account page, click the Update your contact information link, make your changes, then click Save.

      Click the gear button to access your account.

    • Events aren’t repeated by default. You can specify a repeat by expanding Repeat and changing the options.

      Type email addresses to invite people to your event.

      Tip: Click the plus button to add people from your Yahoo! Contacts.

  4. Click the Save button to add the event to your calendar and to send invitations if you’ve added invitees.

    Click the Save button.

    If you don’t see your event in the calendar, make sure that the calendar is visible by clicking the box next to the calendar name on the left side of the page.
