Creating Events
To create  a LifePath Event simply click on the “New Event” or “Add Event” buttons at the bottom of the app.

 A LifePath Event can be as simple as just a Title and a Date, such as “Isabella Started Kindergarten” (September 21, 2007), or it can be a multimedia presentation with a wealth of content as follows:

  • Title (required)
    • Examples: “Isabella Starts Kindergarten”, “Christmas Morning 2009”, “Sachem High School Football Playoff Game”
  • Date  (required)
    • Enter the date of this Event
  • Time (optional)
    • Enter the time for this Event
  • Location (optional)
    • Enter the Location for this event
    • Examples: “New York, NY”, “Madison Square Garden”,
      “49 Dennis Drive, Lake Ronkonkoma, NY 11779”
  • Description (optional)
    • Enter the description or story for this Event
    • Can be a short or as long as you want
  • Enter Photos (optional)
    • Here is where you can add photos and videos to the Event
