How to Keep Events Separate and Private on the Samsung Galaxy S 5’s Calendar

By Bill Hughes

When you have multiple calendars stored in one place (in this case, your Samsung Galaxy S 5 phone), you might get confused when you want to add a new event. It can be even more confusing when you need to add the real event on one calendar and a placeholder on another.

Suppose your boss is a jerk, and to retain your sanity, you need to find a new job. You send your résumé to the arch-rival firm, Plan B, which has offices across town. Plan B is interested and wants to interview you at 3:00 p.m. next Tuesday. All good news.

The problem is that your current boss demands that you track your every move on the company calendaring system. His draconian management style is to berate people if they’re not at their desks doing work if they’re not at a scheduled meeting.

You follow the drift. You don’t want Snidely Whiplash trudging through your calendar, sniffing out your plans to exit stage left, and making life more miserable if Plan B doesn’t work out. Instead, you want to put a reasonable-sounding placeholder on your work calendar, while putting the real event on your personal calendar.

You can easily do this from your calendar on your Samsung Galaxy S 5. When you’re making the event, you simply tell the phone where you want the event stored, making sure to keep each event exactly where it belongs.

When you save the event, it’s stored strictly on your phone and your personal Gmail account. Now you can create a new event (in this case, a phony doctor’s appointment), on your work calendar.

After you save the event, it will appear forevermore on that calendar until you delete it. Just be sure to keep straight on which calendar you intend to store which event. The name of the calendar on which each event is stored appears under the Calendar heading.
