More accurate to call this "routines" than "goals" No tools to incorporate logical steps to achieve a goal.

Have you found a way to delete them and re assign i have added something during the time block but still wants me to do it at the orginal time and gets annoying because it covers up my new schedualed item I can differ but rather delete and have it help me pick a new time

Hi Steve, Your video on printing gmail calendar is very helpful. But I do have a question on a printing issue I have. I would like to print one day only (which I can do) BUT I need the description of the hourly events/appointments printed too. Is that possible? Or is the only way to view the full description on each hourly event of the day is to refer back to Google's calendar and open each event to view?

When I create a goal it's only showed for a month but I want it to be for a year. How can I do that?

Put "defer" to a a goal of the day and it just vanished. Anyway to edit and put it back in the day I need?

+dottotech Thanks! I will help myself! :) Goals in google calendar is a great idea. But it still seems a bit rough on the edges... or my android version is just old :\ Still on old lollipop. Might be that.

Hi Steve! I really appreciate your videos -- thanks so much! I have a question for "Ask Dottotech" as well. I recently started a new job that uses Outlook as its email client (PC-based); I had been using Gmail (Mac-based) for my personal email/calendaring system. Do you have any suggestions on streamlining these two systems? For example, I currently have a personal calendar in Gmail and a work calendar in Outlook -- yet, this seems inefficient and I don't like bouncing between two calendars, in two systems. For email, I will likely continue to use Outlook for work and Gmail for personal. Any strategies for effectively managing these two systems in parallel would be welcomed! Kindly, Heather

Great! Thanks so much for the reply, Steve. I will try this out.

You can share each calendar with the other. It is a pretty straightforward process, then regardless which interface you are in you can access the other data

Hey, great video. I was wondering if you have figured out a way to change the timing for the goals. I am trying to set a goal to go running in the morning. However, it has automatically set my goal to 8 am. Then i manually changed that to 6:30am. However, it continues to keep all the other entries for running at 8 am. please could you tell me how i cant get all my running entries in google goals to start at 6:30 am please?

You need to adjust few more times to your desire time frame, Google goal will learn your pattern and change accordingly.

Hi Steve. Have you considered using Inbox by Google instead of Gmail? If so, why did you decide to stay with Gmail?
dottotech (2 years ago)
I have used in box, but I find it holds my hand too much I prefer to have a little more control

on a Galaxy 5, running Android 5.1.1, similar problem as "Fresh Water Ministries" except my + button is in the lower right. When clicked on, I don't get choices but directly open up a new calendar/task event screen.
dottotech (2 years ago)
+Patrick Kelley not cool, the app should be consistent on all platforms

Hi Steve, speaking of calendars, can you update us on Sunrise Calendar. It will go to Outlook exclusively in August and won't be supported any more. Anything similar available???? Thanks Steve

Sensational! Good one, but not necessary for me. I'm retired and have a lot of free time! Let the day come and be surprised! Greetings from Germany! ;-)

First comment! ......... Interesting how much can be done on a phone! Got to mess with my phone and try the goals there (and in my desktop as well :)
Jesse Martin (2 years ago)
How do you take the goals out?
Jesse Martin (2 years ago)
+dottotech ok, I didn't see the option that says to delete entire session
dottotech (2 years ago)
+Jesse Martin Just delete them from the calendar, you will be prompted to delete just that instance or the whole series.
