Calendar Tool and Event Tool Features

Users have asked, "When should I use a the Calendar to make an entry and when should I use Events? 

Important! No matter how you enter your activity it will show up in both the events listing and on the calendar. 

The table below shows you what features are available to both and what are exclusive to the tool type. Choose the features that work best for your activity type. 

Combining Features

  1. Create the event in one of the tools, don't invite users.
  2. Edit the entry using the other tool
  3. Invite who you want to attend. 

This method will prevent invitees from getting two notifications for the same event.
