Google Calendar web interface

Google Calendar’s interface is everything you’d expect from Google. Google’s signature pastel blue and yellow tones hide a simple yet powerful feature.

Choose a date to quickly jump to different sections of your calendar. At the top right there are tabs to toggle between Day, Week, Month, Next 4 Days and Agenda view. The main area shows the current view.

At the top of the screen you’ll find links to other Google services you’ve signed up for, so you can schedule an appointment in Google Drive, view relevant spreadsheets, or send a quick email in Gmail.

On the left side of the screen you can manage shared calendars and contacts, and at the top of the screen you can search for events on Google, so you can quickly find events by keyword search.

Add Events to Google Calendar

To add events such as birthdays, simply select a date in the month view or a time in the day or week view. A dialog box points to the date or time, allowing you to quickly schedule events. Or you can choose. For more information Link and add more details. You can also add events via the text link on the left.

You can also import your entire calendar calendar from Outlook, iCal or Yahoo!. calendar. Google Calendar doesn’t sync directly with software like Outlook or iCal, so you’ll need to import your appointments even if you use both tools. This is unfortunate, but there are third-party tools to sync between calendars.

Multiple calendars in Google Calendar

Instead of creating event categories, you can create multiple calendars. Each calendar can be accessed through a common interface, but each can have different management settings. This way we can create calendars for work, calendars for homes, and calendars for local bridge clubs without these worlds collide.

Events from all visible calendars appear in the main calendar view. However, you can color code them to avoid confusion.

Share Google Calendar

This is where Google Calendar really shines. You can share your calendar with others, and Google can control it.

You can make your calendar fully public. This is suitable for organizations or educational institutions. Anyone can add a public calendar to their calendar and see all the dates in it.

You can share your calendar with specific people, such as friends, family, or coworkers. It’s easiest if you’re using Gmail, as Gmail autocompletes the contact’s email address as you enter it. However, you don’t need a Gmail address to send invitations.

You can choose to share only your busy hours, share read-only access to appointment details, share the ability to edit appointments in your calendar, or share the ability to manage your calendar and invite others.

This means that your boss can see your work calendar, but not your personal calendar. Alternatively, Bridge Club members can view and edit Bridge data and view busy times on their personal calendar without viewing details.

Google Calendar Notifications

One of the problems with internet calendars is that the calendar is on the web and too busy to check. You can send event reminders from Google Calendar. You can also receive reminders by email or by text message on your phone.

When scheduling an event, you can invite attendees by email, similar to Microsoft Outlook. Emails contain events in .ics format, so you can import details into iCal, Outlook, or other calendar tools.

Google Calendar on your phone

If you have a compatible phone, you can also view the calendar on your phone and add events. This means you don’t need to carry a separate organizer for events that are within range of your cell phone. The interface for viewing and interacting with calendar events on an Android phone is different than on the web, but it should be.

If you’re using your phone, you can also use Google Now to schedule appointments.

Integration with other services

Gmail Messages recognizes the event in the message and offers to schedule it in Google Calendar.

With a little technical know-how, you can publish a public calendar on your website so that users without a Google Calendar can read your events. Google Calendar is also available as part of Google Apps for Business.

Google Calendar Review: Conclusion

If you don’t use Google Calendar, you should probably use it. Google has obviously put a lot of thought into Google Calendar, and it works like a tool written by people who actually use it. This calendar makes it easy to schedule your work, so you might be wondering what you would have done without it.
