Add Saved Events to Calendar grants the Illinois app permission to add Events from your Favorites to your calendar. Note: You may still be prompted by your operating system to confirm permission the first time you add an event to your calendar.
Prompt When Saving Events to Calendar ensures that the Illinois app prompts you to confirm each event before it is added to your calendar app. Use this feature to choose whether you would like all saved events to be added to your calendar automatically or whether you would prefer to choose which saved events to add to your calendar.

Your Favorites screen—the first screen you see when you open the Illinois app—will show you only the items you include in the list of My Favorites and in the order that you arrange them.
