How to create new calendars in macOS Sierra

The Calendar app in macOS Sierra includes maps, weather, and travel time to make setting up and sharing your events easy. It’s also easy to create a new calendar.

By default, macOS includes two calendars in the Calendar app – Work and Home. Ifyou want to create a new calendar, choose New Calendar from the File menu. Type a name for your calendar in the text field. For example, I play in some sports leagues, so I set up one for Sports. You can see and control how your calendars appear by clicking the Calendars button.

To change the color or name of a calendar, select it from the calendars list, then choose Edit > Get Info. To remove a calendar and all of its events, right-click or Control-click the calendar’s name,  then select Delete from the shortcut menu that appears.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images come from.)
