Zoho Calendar helps you create and manage events across multiple calendars added to your account. If you are organizing meetings at your workplace or personal events like birthday parties, you can add them as an event to your calendar and invite people as attendees. While adding an event on a specific calendar, you can check the free/busy schedule of the attendees to pick the best time-slot. Changes can be made to an event already added to a calendar if required.
An event when added to a calendar is in public state by default. This indicates that anybody having access to the calendar will be able to view the event. In case you want to add an event that is not publicly visible and can be viewed only by the attendees of the event, then you can enable the "Private" option while creating the event.
Events that are happening for a whole day can be scheduled as an all-day event on Zoho Calendar. When you mark an event as an "All-day event", the 24-hour slot for the day will be blocked by the event and your free/busy status will be updated as "Unavailable" or "Busy" for the entire day.
A recurring event keeps repeating itself for a given time period. If you have a meeting that is scheduled for a particular time every week, you can create this event as a "Recurring event". When you turn on the "Repeat" option, declare the repeating status of the event in the window as "Daily", "Weekly", "Monthly" or "Yearly" and customize the other options as to when the event should recur. You can limit the recurring to "n" times or till a particular date or to infinity.
Events that are created on Zoho Calendar can be associated with other Zoho apps like Zoho CRM task, Zoho Meeting, Zoho Task and Zoho Notes. While creating an event, select the necessary Zoho apps to which you want to add the event. After the event is created, it will be added to the calendar in the selected Zoho app.
