Getting started with Google Calendar
Google Calendar is a powerful, free service you can use to organize your schedule and coordinate events with others. It has many useful features, including the ability to share calendars with others and easily switch what is currently being displayed. You can access your calendar from any computer or mobile device as long as you are signed in to your Google account.
Each item on the calendar is an event. To create an event, click a blank space on the calendar. A small box will appear for you to enter basic information about the event. Click the Save button to finish, or click the More Options button to enter more details. The only information you need to enter is the title of the event and the time, but more information can be useful for anyone looking at the event.
In the event form, you can add notifications to remind you of the event before it starts. These reminders can be notifications in your browser, or they can be automated emails. This can help you stay on schedule or give you time to plan travel.
Sharing and customizing calendars
One of the most powerful features of Google Calendar is the ability to customize and share them. Move your mouse over a calendar name on the left, then click the three dots icon beside it to open a menu for this calendar. You can change the color of events in this calendar in your view, or you can hide it from the current view.
You can share the entire calendar with others by clicking Settings and sharing. This will give you options similar to invitations for events, but it affects the entire calendar you are sharing. Shared calendars can be useful for coordinating many related events with a group of people.
