Adding an Event
Without events, your calendar is sparse, unhelpful, and useless; to make the most out of Timepage, you’ll add as many of them as you can. Whether it’s dinner with a friend, a meeting about a new project, or a call with the boss, storing your events in Timepage keeps you organized and informed.
We’ve made it easy to add events in Timepage, so you can spend less time fiddling and more time getting back to work. Adding events can be done in Timeline Day View, Heat Map, or on your own Home screen via 3D Touch or the “Add New Event” widget.
The Timeline view is the most comprehensive look of your weekly schedule, including events, Action Cards, and more. Because of this, we’ve made it simple to add a new event directly from Timeline.
At the bottom of the screen is a floating add button; tapping on the button will bring up the “New Event” screen, automatically set to today’s date. However, if you’d like to add an event for another day, you can drag the floating add button over any day on the Timeline to create an event for that day.
In Day View
When in Timeline, tap the day you’d like to dive into to enter Day View.
While in Day View, add an event by either:
- Tapping the icon found at the top right of the screen.
- Pulling down until an arrow appears with the words “Release to add”.
After completing one of these actions, type a title, select a time, and tap the “Done” or “Enter” key on the keyboard to save the event.
In Heat Map
Heat Map is our tool for a monthly overview of your busiest days, showing you the density of events across multiple calendars. Since Heat Map helps you take a look at the bigger picture, you can also see the best times to add events by showing the times when you’re most free.
To add an event in Day Map, tap the relevant day in the calendar view and, under that day’s header, tap “Add new event.” This option will always be at the bottom of the event list and will feature a gray title rather than the white event titles. After adding the event, it will then appear in the chosen date.
With 3D Touch
For 3D Touch-compatible iPhones (iPhone 6s and above), you can use 3D Touch to quickly add events to Timepage from your Home screen. Instead of launching the app and navigating to either Day View or Heat Map, long-pressing on the Timepage icon will present you with an “Add New Event” option. Pressing that will launch you directly into the event creation window.
With the “Add New Event” widget
Devices using iOS14 and above, can show the “Add New Event” widget on the home screen. You can configure this widget to show quick add buttons for up to three separate calendars. Press the relevant button, and you’ll be taken straight into the app, ready to create your new event in the chosen calendar.
