Get the official Google Calendar app for your iPhone or iPad to save time and make the most of every day. Google Calendar is integrated with Apple Health to track your workouts and mark Goals as done automatically. Google Calendar is part of Google Workspace. My life was becoming extremely crazy and I kept "double booking" myself like Every. So I kept having to call and let people down because I had forgotten about previous commitments!
My mom and sister got frustrated with me and told me that I needed to just get Google Calendar and every time I commit to something I have to put it in the calendar right then and there and then before I commit to things I have to pull out my calendar and check it! It was simple advice but Google Calendar was so easy to use and so aesthetically that after I used it once I got hooked!
Haha I love putting hints in my calendar now and color coordinating them! I found out you can link calendars with people! Now I know when my sister is free to talk on the phone because her crazy work schedule is on there and we love so far away it's helped us stay connected!! All that to say!
I love Google Calendar and it will help you organize your life! The app is great but there are 2 things I wish they did. I wish they had more colors to choose from when writing in an event. I am the kind of person that likes to keep certain events in the same color so i know that that event is work, party, meeting, holiday, birthdays, vet appointments, etc. But the color selection is a bit limited for me and there are colors that i never use because it makes no sense when i associate that color for that event, like the color flamingo.
I wish they had different kinds of blues, purples, greens, reds, oranges, and pink. Especially since the purple for reminder you cannot change, so placing an event in that color confuses me. The fault is google maps. The photo location for an area should be something you should have the option of selecting in calendar and the logo should be an option.
Their should also be an option on google maps where someone can select the primary photo of that location when flagging a picture. For example, my dog vet is pet smart Banfield but the picture shown on my calendar is a lady with her dog. That is not the location of the vet, it should be a picture of the front of the store, even though there is a picture of that, i cant select it.
I was surprised to see how many other reviews I have found with almost exactly the same issues that I have. The fact that the other reviewers have been reporting consistently issues since at least the beginning of with no improvement is nearly inexcusable.
My primary issues in a nutshell - 1 often app opens to random dates at initial launch; 2 after initial app load, it generally takes seconds sometimes much longer before the UI is responsive; 3 once everything has finally loaded if I have not given up and force quit it already there is way too much UI lag and sputtering as I try to navigate through different UI views — full month, daily agenda, etc.
Could you please add handwriting recognition for Apple Pencil user, so we can write on it like a planner? Can u add more day on google calendar widget? It just show 2 days as today and tomorrow. My suggestion to the next update is please make it able to see more days like days. Thank youu :. The following data may be collected and linked to your identity:.

As long as you already have a Google account, and about 1. It will already be set up and ready for use. Both the website and the mobile app have a settings icon that lets you play with the way that Google Calendar looks and works—and you might also need to bring your old calendar into your new one. Few people start their calendars with a blank slate. First, open your calendar on your computer. That will make it easier to save your data and move it around, and in any case, importing to Google Calendar can only be done on a computer, not on a mobile device.
In your source calendar, look in the menus for an Export function. Calendar data can take a number of different formats. Make sure that you know where you saved the data! In Google Calendar on your computer, click the settings icon at the top right. Log in to iCloud and click the Calendar icon. Choose the calendar you wish to export and click the broadcast icon on the right. Check the box marked Public Calendar. Apple will generate a hashed URL. ICS file. Some of those settings are straightforward.
The same is true of your Time zone but this is a little more complex. Create an event, and Google will automatically use your local time. So if you were writing in your calendar in New York that you had to place a phone call to someone in California, you might see the time of the call as 11am, but your colleague would see it as 8am.
As you travel, the times used by your calendar adjust to the local time zone. That change should happen automatically. Google will adjust its time zone based on your IP address or your telephone data. To show more than one time zone setting on the calendar, open Settings, choose Time Zone and check Display secondary time zone.
This is also where you can uncheck the option to update your primary time zone to match your current location, keeping the times on your calendar to one zone regardless of your location. Click the calendar in the Settings, then select Calendar Setting and change the time zone. On a computer, you can also add a World Clock to your calendar. What it actually means is that you can add the time in various parts of the world to the side of your calendar.
They appear on the left of the screen below the month view. This part of the Settings includes a number of features that are often ignored but which significantly affect the way that your calendar will operate. The first setting is the default duration of events that you add to the calendar.
This can be a great source of frustration. Although Google lets you set specific times for each event you create, when you add an event, it will start with a set period of time. You can choose between 15, 30, 60, 90 and minutes. The time setting during event creation, especially on a smartphone can be a little fiddly. Will they be half-hour phone calls? One-hour meetings? Or two-hour sessions? Beneath the default duration settings is the option to create Speedy Meetings.
Check the box and minute meetings will automatically be scheduled to last 25 minutes while longer meetings will be cut by ten minutes. There are only three options: guests can modify an event , changing the time, location or the duration, for example; they can invite others to take part in the event; and they can see a guest list of all the other people attending the event. The next setting is so unclear that Google had to add an explanatory note. You have three options.
First, add all invitations to your calendar. You can turn notifications off completely, restrict them to browser notifications , or you can go the whole hog and choose interruptive Alerts. Those interruptive alerts are pretty interruptive. If you find them too disruptive, this is the place to come to tone down the pain.
Finally, in this section, you can choose to automatically add video calls to events. Again, these settings are hidden away down in the Settings menu but they have a direct effect on the appearance of your calendar both on your mobile device and on your computer.
Some of them are also more useful than others. But choosing to reduce the brightness of past events will help to keep the calendar looking clean. Administrative assistants at big companies will want to make sure that they have that option. The last three options allow you to change the day to start the week.
Not all countries begin the working week on Monday and you might want to be able to look at a calendar that puts Saturday first and foremost. You can choose to start the week on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. You can also change the number of days visible in each view and add different calendars from around the world, such as Chinese calendars, a Hebrew calendar or a Persian calendar.
Those dates appear in addition to the Julian calendar. The next setting is particularly important. Google has the ability to scan incoming emails and add any events from Gmail it finds to your calendar automatically. It can be very useful. The settings allow you to turn the feature off.
Those are the settings that are available when you use your Google Calendar online. But what makes the calendar so useful is that all of these entries remain with you when you leave your desk and pick up your mobile phone or your tablet computer. Your laptop or your monitor might be easier to read and use but the calendar on your phone is always with you. The settings on your mobile device vary only slightly from those on your computer—but are much less clear. At the top of the list is a link to General settings may of which are the same as those on the website but a few of which are unique to the app.
The first general settings are straightforward. You can also choose to show week numbers and declined events , and change the default event duration from sixty minutes to one of five other options from fifteen minutes to two hours. The next settings are more interesting. Notifications let you turn off notifications on the device or choose from a long list of different tones that will beep at you to remind you of the event, and toggle the vibrate settings.
In Settings choose a calendar and choose one of the settings under Default notifications and Default notifications for all-day events. The last setting in this section is the most useful and probably the most overlooked. To use the response, tap or click an event, select the guests and choose the response.
You can change the text then too. Events from Gmail is clear enough. The next option, Events , determines how events appear on your mobile calendar. You change the color of the block of time the event takes up on the calendar, and you can change the default notifications, adjusting the amount of time before the event when your phone gives you a ping.
You can also add a second notification, and you can determine the settings for the notifications of events that take all day. The next setting concerns the color of Reminders. You can only create an event. Those are the settings. One of the most important features of Google Calendar is also the most confusingly named. Instead, it takes data from a different calendar and places it in yours. Unlike importing calendar data though, that data is constantly updated. Despite its clumsy title, the feature is really useful.
It means that you can add information from just about any calendar to your own calendar. You can import the dates of religious holidays, the fixtures of your favorite sports team, moon phases, NASA launch schedules and a host of other events—including calendars shared by other team members, relatives, and friends. The only limit is the space in your calendar itself. Adding a new calendar can only be performed on a computer; there is no option for adding a calendar to the Google Calendar app.
But the option can be found on the site in two places. When you do that, Google offers you a list of your contacts with people who have made their calendars public. It will also allow you to request access. Sharing your own schedule with others will also have a use. Your work colleagues might want to know the time of the staff meeting. Google lets you create multiple levels for your calendar. But you can also add a series of other calendars that have already been prepared.
You can add them by pasting in their URL. The calendars need to be in iCal format. You can also choose to make that calendar publicly accessible. The ability to share your calendar with others is one of the most important features of Google Calendar. The process is also a little fiddly. Hover the cursor over the calendar you want to share and click the three dots that appear at the end of the line.
You can also choose a prepared color for that calendar or mix a color of your own —and you can move to the Settings and sharing page. There are two options for access permissions. The first is to make your calendar available to the public. That will allow everyone to see your calendar.
It will even turn up in Google search results. You should think long and hard before choosing that option. If you do decide to make your calendar public, you can also get a shareable link that you can give to others so that they can find your calendar. Without clicking the checkbox that makes your calendar public, that URL will have no use. More helpful is the ability to share your calendar with specific people. One of the least known functions of Google Calendar is both one of its most useful and one of the fiddliest to use.
While communications platforms like WhatsApp allow groups of people to exchange messages, Google does allow groups to share a calendar. You can do that at groups. It will look something like this: [name] googlegroups. All the members of the group will have access to that calendar. Each member will receive first an email with a link that they need to click. If you have multiple events on the same day, Google Calendar struggles to put them in the order you want to see.
The prioritization it uses starts logically. Events are presented in chronological order regardless of the schedule on which they appear. Therefore, if your personal calendar says that you have a staff meeting at 10 a. But, what happens if you have more than one all-day event? If you want to prioritize those all-day events, put a number before each of the event titles. But, the creation of different calendars will be part of your time management workflow.
Now you get to place entries into that calendar. There are lots of different ways to do that—and more than one kind of entry. You can add events both from the calendar website and from the app. What you can do on each of those platforms though is slightly different. You can click on the plus icon at the bottom right of the page to see the full event creation form. Actually, all you type there is the title. Next, you can choose between creating an event or a reminder.
You then get to enter a date. Because you clicked on a day to bring up the form, the default setting is that the event will last all day and will only take place on that day. Click on one of those dates though, and Google will offer a monthly schedule that allows you to enter different days. That single-day event can become a week-long happening such as a vacation or a conference. The event will be on the calendar. But you can do more.
Most of them are pretty clear but some demand a little thought. You can then mark the event as lasting all day , and you can make it a recurring event. Google will offer to make the event daily, weekly, monthly, annually, every weekday or weekend, or just let you figure it out for yourself. The next section is more complicated. This is where you can enter the event details. Start to add a location and Google will complete the address for you. It also turns the location into a link that a guest can click to see on Google Maps.
The next option is the type of notification you can receive. This is more complicated than it sounds. You can choose to receive the notification by email or you can receive it as a notification in your browser or on your mobile device. You can set how long before the event you receive that notification in minutes, hours, days or weeks, and you can add more notifications just in case you—or your guests—might forget.
You can then change the calendar on which the event will be posted, and you can change the color of the event. That can be useful too. The next option relates to privacy. The event will have Default visibility. Finally, in this section, you can also include a description of the event. For most events, the title is likely to be sufficient. But adding some extra detail here—such as dress code or meeting topic—can be useful. You can even add attachments and links which makes the description feature particularly valuable when arranging a business meeting.
Upload the agenda, for example, and people will know what to expect. An area on the right of the screen lets you add guests so that they can see it on their own calendars, and allow them to engage with the event in different ways. You can let them change the event, invite other people to take part, and allow them to see everyone else who has been invited. At the top of the page, next to the Save button, is a drop-down menu called More actions.
