Invite people to an event

If your account supports adding participants to events, then you can add participants either when you create the event, or after. If you added a Microsoft Exchange work account, you can connect to the remote server to add people who aren't in your contact list.
When you create or change an event, tap the Participants field.
  • If the person that you want to add is in your contact list, start typing a name. Tap the name from the list.
  • If the person that you want to add is in your organization, and you added your work account to your device, type the name. Tap Look up.
Tip: Some accounts might let you view the participants' availability. After you add all the participants to the event, tap the event time near the top of the screen. If any of the participants have a schedule conflict, the time slider at the top of the screen is red. To find a time that works for everyone, move the slider until it turns green.

Add a location to an event

When you create or change an event, do one of the following:
  • To type a location manually, in the Location field, type a location.
  • To open the Maps app and choose a location, in the Location field, tap The Map icon. Choose a location.

Schedule a recurring event

  1. When you create or change an event, tap the time for the event.

Add conference call details to an event

  2. In the Conference drop-down list, do one of the following:
    • To add new conference call details to your event, tap Add Bridge. Enter a name for the conference call, and the phone numbers and access codes. Tap Save.
