There’s nothing more important to Timepage than calendars, and the Calendars preferences are the place to go to add, remove, and edit saved calendars.
Set up Calendars
As mentioned in the article Setting Up Calendars, calendars that appear in Timepage come from those added to iOS. Any calendars tied to accounts in iOS will carry over to Timpage, and the Setup Calendars preference is where you’ll go to add and remove the calendars featured in Timepage.
In this preference, your calendars will be displayed in a list format; calendars that are already showing in Timepage will have a to the right. Tapping on a calendar will toggle its appearance either on or off, and you’ll immediately see these changes reflect in Timepage. When you toggle a calendar off, it won’t delete the calendar – just hide it.
Deleting calendars in the Setup Calendars preference comes through a tap and hold. After a short period of time, Timepage will remove the calendar from the app and delete it altogether.

Whether it’s a work or personal calendar, we tend to favor one calendar over another for the majority of our events. If that calendar isn’t set as a default, it’s incredibly frustrating to have to select the right calendar every time.
The Set Default preference – you guessed it! – lets you pick your preferred calendar as a default. Just tap on the option and every event you create will be added to that calendar. When an event needs to be added to another calendar, you can do this when creating an event.
In the Choose Colors setting, you’ll first select a calendar from the list. Then, you’ll pan around in the color picker until you see your preferred color – to change the brightness, move your finger along the slider. Once you’re happy with your selection, tap the icon at the bottom.
