  1. How do I make changes to my “rule”? I have a rule, but want to change the time on and off. Thanks

    • You can find Add rule under event. Edit your rule name. If you have more than one account with Google calendar events, you can pick one. Your rule always applies to events you create when you’ve said yes. You can turn it on for events where you said “Maybe” or haven’t yet replied. At the top, make sure your rule is turned on. To delete a rule, tap Trash icon.

  2. Thanks for your reply. I’m sorry that I was not as clear as I should have been. I only want to change the time this rule starts and ends – the rule is “on”. Also, there is no Trash icon next to this rule. Below the rule on the page “Automatic Rules” there is “Weekend”, “Weeknight” – each with a Trash icon and then below these is “Add rule”. Any further help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
