how to use calendar on google

Once upon a time, people toted around a bulky notebook thing called a datebook. It assisted primitive humans with keeping a schedule, reviewing appointments, and knowing where they need to be and when. Such archaic technology is no longer necessary, because your Android phone comes with a Calendar app.

 

The Calendar app works with your Google account to keep track of your schedule and appointments. You can visit Google Calendar on the web at

  • calendar.google.com

 

Before you throw away your datebook, copy into the Calendar app some future appointments and info, such as birthdays and anniversaries.

 

Browsing dates and appointments :

To check your schedule and browse events, open the Calendar app. You see upcoming dates shown in one of several views; the Figure  shows the Calendar app’s Month, Week, and Day views. Not shown are 3 day view or Schedule view, which simply lists upcoming events. To change views, tap the Side menu icon and choose a view type from the navigation drawer.

 

Swipe the screen left or right to browse events. If you need to return to today’s date, tap the Go to Today icon, illustrated in the Figure

 

Not every version of the Calendar app displays your schedule exactly as illustrated in the Figure. Some versions may lack Week view or 3 day view, for example. Others may sport an action bar from which the current calendar view is chosen.

 

When using the 3 Day, Day, Week, or Schedule views, tap the month name to see a quick overview of the current month’s appointments.

 

I check Week view at the start of the week to remind me of what’s coming up.

 

The current day is highlighted in Month and Week views. A horizontal bar marks the current time. (Refer to Day view in the Figure

 

Different colors flag your events. The colors represent a calendar category to which the events are assigned. See the later section “Creating an event,” for information on calendars.

 

Reviewing appointments :

To view more detail about an event, tap it. When you’re using Month view, first tap the event’s date and then the event. The event’s details appear onscreen, similar to the event shown in the Figure

 

Which details you see depends on how much information was recorded when the event was created. Some events have only a minimum of information; others may have details, such as a location for the event. When the event’s location is listed, you can tap that location on the card, and the Maps app pops up to show you where the event is being held.

 

Tap the Back navigation icon to dismiss the event’s details.

 

Birthdays and a few other events on the calendar may be pulled from the phone’s address book or from social networking apps. That coordination explains why some events are listed twice; they’re pulled in from two sources.

 

The best way to review upcoming appointments is to choose Schedule view.

 

A Calendar widget also provides a great way to see upcoming events from directly on the Home screen. See Chapter 19 for information on widgets.

 

Google Now also lists any immediate appointments or events. See the later section “Google Now.”
