The event is added to your calendar and the calendars of all participants and booked resources.

If you don't have permission to add events to a user's calendar, or they don't have a personal calendar, the event is sent to that user's Mailbox as a message.
Events that you create in a group calendar are added directly to that calendar or to your personal calendar (with copies placed in the group calendar). The group calendar's permissions determine which method FirstClass uses. These events appear to come from the group calendar, not from yourself.

Adding events from other calendars
You can copy events from one calendar to another. This can be useful for adding events from group calendars to your personal calendar.
To copy an event to another calendar, drag it from the source calendar to the appropriate date on the target calendar.

Using messages and documents to create events
You can drag a message or document into an open calendar to create a new event. A copy of the message or document is attached to the event. The original message or document remains unchanged.
In day view, the event is created at the time to which the message or document was dragged.
In other views, the event is created at the first available time on the date to which the message or document was dragged.
