Creating an event

How to create an event in Calendar:

  2. Click on Create.

To invite people to your event:

  1. In the Event details page, find the Add section and click Guests.

  2. Type the first few letters of a person's name or email address in the box. Matching addresses in your organization's directory will appear as you type.
  3. Click one of the suggestions to add that person to the event. If no suggestions appear, type your guest's full email address and click Add.
  4. If you have a lot of guests, you can quickly see when everyone is available. Click "Suggested times" under your guest list to see a list of times when everyone can attend. Or, click the Find a time tab to stack your guests' calendars, then pick a time when nobody has a scheduling conflict. 

You can even add a Google Groups mailing list address to invite a large group of people at once, such as your whole team (For example: marketing@pepperdine.edu).
