Adding an Appointment in iCal
iCal is compact and easy to use, but don’t underestimate it. This little calendar program has a surprising amount of power. Its primary purpose, of course, is keeping track of your appointments. Adding new ones couldn’t be simpler, and reading iCal’s neatly color-coded calendar is as easy as it gets.
- Click the Day or Week button to switch to Day or Week view.
- Click the calendar to which you want to add the appointment.
- Click and drag on the hour grid for the day of the appointment to define the time span for the appointment.
- Type in the appointment text.
