Q: What’s a calendar? A: A calendar is a magical system used for measuring time, invented way back when people realized “eventually” and “sometime” were too vague for arranging meetings.
Q: How does a calendar work? A: Like a diary that future you wrote. A calendar helps you keep track of days, weeks, months, and years. It’s like a roadmap for your time, without the annoying “recalculating” from your GPS.
Q: How do I add an event to my calendar? A: It’s a piece of cake! Choose your date, time, and bam, you’ve got an event. Just remember, your calendar won’t actually bake the cake for you on that date.
Q: Can I share my calendar with others? A: Yes, you can! It’s like giving people a window into your world. But luckily, they can’t see your messy desk, just your well-organized schedule.
Q: Can I sync my calendar with other calendars? A: Absolutely! Your calendar can have playdates with other calendars. It’s like your calendar joining a club where they all share the best events.
