I have a issue from time to time with certain contacts when I go to add them to a event even when I have their email saved it want let me add them by typing their name.

One thing that I like to do is make a duplicate or copy of an appointment so that I can for example, re-create a follow-up appointment with the doctor that has all the same information as the original appointment without having to retype it. I can do that on my desktop but how do I do it on the mobile?

Im a new user to Google calendar - I have just decided to try a digital instead of the old lady paper planner in my purse 😂! My problem is that as part of my regular schedule, I'd like to hilight certain days that alternate but generally stay the same without setting an actual event. When I glance at my calendar, I already know green (or whatever color) means the same thing. Mostly I use it as a quick future reference. Do you know of a quick way to do this on the mobile app?? Thanks!

Im sheepishly embarrassed to admit I am one of those insane people that doesnt have a work and home calender. Do I just make a completely seperate google calender called work? Is my info saved on the cloud incase my phone gets completely destroyed or lost?

All my appointments are way back 2017 and it will take me lots of time to move them to the current date. The best way to do it is through my laptop. Tried to my Google account with my Windows 10 laptop but it doesn't seem to appear on my Calendar. Can you give me suggestions of what's the best PC Calendar available?
Tom St. Aubin (1 month ago)
The way I'm interpreting your question is that you would like to have access from the desktop on Windows 10. If that's correct, try the following. 1. Open your Google Calendar. 2. While you're in that tab, click on the 3 vertical dots in the upper right corner. 3. Go down to 'more tools', then select 'Create shortcut' 4. A new window will open. If you want it to open a new window when you open it from the desktop click the box indicating so (default, I believe). 5. Click on Create. You should now have a shortcut on your desktop which you can pin to the taskbar by right-clicking on the new shortcut. You should be able to everything from here that you do online.

The main cons (or what is the right word) for goals is that they don't take into consideration your location. It sometimes takes time for the way/road, but the goal instrument places your practise despite of this time.

Thanks, Steve! I've been using the default calendar app that came with my iPhone but I've been thinking about switching. I'm going to try out Google's calendar based on this video!

An annoying “feature” of Calendar is when I touch an entry to edit, it zooms away to another month. It takes several touches to capture the wanted date. Why?

I love the goals feature. It allows me to set things which aren't important enough to block out a specific time each day to do but that I want to find time to do.

I am big fun of the Goal option but i hate that the calendar which decides when i do and this doesn't even work offline
Nonne Yahbusiness (4 months ago)
This more of a review than a tutorial. You told us how you use it, not how to use it. Not much help for one who is not tech savy and just picked up an Iphone. BTW, this is par for the course, most tutorials really take for granted that you're familiar with how these devices work.
Natalia Luongo (4 months ago)
I'm with you!
Renee Fritz (4 months ago)
I wish there were a way to increase the volume of the notifications on my iPhone for Google Calendars. It’s so quick & short. I’ve tried to find an answer to no avail. Maybe this is one of those “warts” you mentioned. Anyway good video.

I'm not sure why you would want Google to tell you how to live your life. Goals is pretty useless unless you're okay with not making your own decisions.

Allen Schneider (5 months ago)
I wish it had a "view" that showed a month calendar on the top and the agenda for a specific day on the bottom.  Others have this and it is a great help.  Can't believe they left this off!
Note: BIG PROBLEM > Yes multiple calendars are essential, the app will show multiple calendars, but this video nor any other video that I've researched has not shown or proven that you can actually add events to those multiple calendar's. The only option when adding an event (in the app) is to the primary gmail calendar only. A BIG BUMMER.... Am I wrong? I hope so... Any thoughts?
I finally found it! Just over looked it.

In the mobile app? I think you are right. Sorry!

Great video Steve, one thing i cant find is how you change an apointment from one calendar to another....Plaes help me whit that
dottotech (5 months ago)
Edit, go tp the bottom of a appointment and you will see where you can chose a different calendar
Sherry Smith (5 months ago)
Thank you, Steve. I like the reminder on the calendar, but I use the tasks as well. With the desktop calendar, I can switch between the tasks and reminders but you can not on the mobile device. I found the google task app so I can view my tasks and add to my calendar, but once added unless I go to the desktop calendar I can not see where I added the task on my mobile calendar. Am I missing something?
Maria Borgvall (5 months ago)
I miss some essentials in this app like being able to change the calendar for an event (from one Google calendar to another) and what cslanders to show. It would also be neat with some extra features that other Google calendar apps lack, like being able to edit or add your calendars (not events but the calendars themselves). This app adds nothing, so many slightly better apps for Google calendars out there.
Jose A. Garcia Jr. (5 months ago)
Awesome video thank you and I will agree with you I hate the Google goals can’t remove them or adjust them

Excellent video, Steve, I downloaded the Google calendar app. I think it will be useful to me. Have a BLESSED day.
Jeff Nording (6 months ago)
One thing that I think is worth mentioning is its integration with other Google products for instance I use Google Keep I set what I need to do for a particular date and tell it to remind me the night before and when I set a reminder in Google Keep it sends a reminder to the new Google Calendar as well

Again and again great Vids! greets from germany!

I would use the new Tasks with the Improve Tasks Panel extension or Sortd to manage activities with goals, ie projects. I found that the extension "G Suite Training " from the Chrome Store is good in general for most of the Google apps. "Google Apps For Work Training" from the Chrome store is good for the introducing Gmail to new users.

Good morning. Great presentation on google calendar. For Iphone how do you make the fonts bigger.
Very helpful. Thank you. Been wanting all my calendars synced on my phone for a long time. Now they are.
Valerie Noel (6 months ago)
Thanks Steve, very informative! I need some HELP! I've been using the "Business Calendar (Biz 12) app on my android phone for years. I decided to look back to 2016 for an important event and it wasn't there! I always sinc after an entry, however to my surprise, much of my events weren't on my Google calendar for that timeframe either!. After a quick review I read that a lot of calendar apps DELETE events that are older than 1 or 2 years. I had no idea! Does Google calendar have an "expiration date" for events or was that a glitch because I didn't use it as my primary calendar? And finally, is there any way to retrieve those events that are missing? Thanks and keep up the good work!

Hey Dotto, I really wish Google calendar would allow me to add photos that were taken by myself as a diary reference for example, a meal I enjoyed at a particular restaurant were I can easily search the name and remember the Dish I ordered by the photo. Agree??

I like the GOAL option. I've been going to the gym 5 times a week for the past 27 years, so I don't really NEED the goal option, but I like it. However I HATE that its integration with Google Fit doesn't allow me to automatically mark a workout session as completed, once I add it to Google Fit. Any tip on that? PS: I just discovered your FANTASTIC channel and subscribed! It's SO useful and although English is not my primary language , I understand every single of your words . Thanks!!

Also when I add a calendar from my grandsons website by adding a file name to load it to Google Calendar will Google get updates from the hockey website if games are cancelled or times are changed ?
dottotech (7 months ago)
You will see whatever gets put into that calendar
Grant Durnin (7 months ago)
When I add multiple schedules from other sites such as: my grandson hockey schedule, Toronto Maple Leaf schedule plus all my ongoing appointments this works well when viewing it online. As soon as I ask Google Home or Mini to tell me what's on my schedule it only tells me the grandson hockey games and my ongoing appointments and does not tell me the Leaf games. Any idea what I'm doing wrong or does the Google calendar not handle multiple calendars ?
dottotech (7 months ago)
I think it will only see your main calendar with Home,
Joan Domenech (7 months ago)
Thanks Steve. I write you from the isle of Mallorca (Spain). Your Videos and Tutorials are very practical and entertaining. (I'm specially fascinated with the powerful EVERNOTE, which I use every day more and more thanks to your marvellous tutorials) I agree with you with the App GOOGLE CALENDAR for Mobile, but I miss a lot on it the feature of being capable of separate automatically the Principal, Promotions, Forums, and Social messages, just as the desk top calendar google software does. Don't you? ;-)

Hello from England - great videos thank you. Re Google Calendar Goal function. I went to college recently as a mature student and they seem to like the students setting SMART targets and goals - they input it into the VLE - the Virtual Learning Environment (which is the old software and hardware that they run). It helps the teachers monitor progress - they have to do a lot of ticking boxes to make sure the students are making progress. I think Google Goals is a great thing.
Andreas Brüggenkamp (7 months ago)
Somehow it is possible to make new appointments from gmail to google calendar. Question is: How?! The goal thing is nice for a few tasks, because you can tick them of and have a nice matching picture. But it cost a lot of time to change them before google remembers the regular time of the appointment. I use it for a few tasks where I need a special reminder for and need to see that it is done.
dottotech (7 months ago)
Under the "more" menu when in a message, use "create event"
Your Digital Makeover (7 months ago)
I'm definitely not a fan of the Goal within the Google Calendar App. Mainly because any Goals I create I can not ever cancel, delete, get rid of at all. I tried it, and I recommend not to try it because if you do, you can never get rid of it. Once it shows up sporadically on your calendar, you can delete it, but it will just show up again later at another random time. And there is no way to get it to stop other than throwing your phone into the ocean....lol....sorry for the rant, guess it struck a chord with me :)

Wood Hughes (7 months ago)
I grew up with a sheet of paper TO DO list. It seems to me that either GOALS or REMINDERS should allow you to rank your TO DO’s this way also. Maybe even fill in blanks on the calendar with A or B priority items that can be accomplished in the given amount of time.

iOS also shows the location underneath in grey text but can’t make google calendar show the location on an event.

I like it but there is one thing missing. iOS calendar pulls contacts birthdays and puts them in iOS calendar with their age. But google doesn’t seem to do it?
Nigel Fuller (7 months ago)
Sorry, but any calendar app made for IOS that doesn't work on Apple Watch is a complete waste of time.
Eduardo Carrillo (7 months ago)
Hey Steve. I totally agree that Google Calendar is where it's at. Combining Google Calendar with Todoist is what keeps me on point for personal appointments and tasks. On the **Goal** option in Calendar, I would like to add my two cents to the conversation. It turns out that when you first set up a goal, Google Calendar does find the wholes in your calendar based on the frequency you tell it to and adds the events there as a starting point. However, with every goal event arrival, GCalendar asks for user confirmation if the goal event was done or not. It is with the user input that GCalendar starts to learn over time the user preference and, in turn, adjusts the goal events to days and times. In the course of a few weeks, and with continuous input, you should have goal events on days and times which reflect your personal habit pattern. The screct sauce, then, is that constant user input. The more input confirmation, the more personalized the goal events will be. Last point here, the Goals feature **targets people who want to accomplish things but are not too savvy on how to build habit.*** Goals starts them out with a generic pattern based on some initial information and, with user input and machine learning, helps them out with an eventual personalized pattern of events, thus, contributing to the formation of positive habit.
dottotech (7 months ago)
Hey Eduardo, such good feedback I never gave the goal feature the time to figure that out! I appreciate you taking the time to share it with us!!!

Agree with not being "a goal" fan - as in auto-populated, as these are simply often quarterly/annual reviewed and scheduled items and so get space that shouldn't... ... and your calendar gets filled.
Abhay Nanal (7 months ago)
Goal in Google calendar is a mess. It certainly does not work properly, such that for some days in week it does not show goal at all even when I selected 'I did it'.
Victor Brodt (7 months ago)
One of the things I find most frustrating about Google calendars is getting spam invasions. The desktop allows us to mark it spam and delete it for the rest of its lifetime. On my smartphone it seems impossible to achieve that. As I dictate from my phone I have another question, how in the world do you train dictation to not capitalize common words, or learn a special name instead of inserting the wrong thing consistently?
dottotech (7 months ago)
I don't have any issues with spam in Cal, I am curious as to where it is coming from. OS based dictation deos not seem to be "trainable"

I have list of birthdays in excel sheet format. Can I import all of them in the custom calendar "Client Birthdays" with their name, dob and email addresses ?
Don Brooksby (7 months ago)
Simple from a computer. Just start a new calendar and just below the "new calendar" selection you see Import/Export - you can open up a spreadsheet and add calendar items that way. Google made it real simple
dottotech (7 months ago)
I imagine so
Mark Shampine (7 months ago)
One other quick tip. If you have been scrolling through your calendar and have either lost track of where you are or don’t feel like scrolling back, a tap on the calendar icon in the upper right corner brings you back to the current day/time.
dottotech (7 months ago)
great tips!
Christian De Vos (7 months ago)
Hello Steve, nice video like always. I use GC in connection with Google Keep. In Google Keep I set a reminder in my notes (4 to-do lists) and this reminder is automatically synced with my Google Calendar. Google Keep is available on my Mac and my smartphone, so I always have my to-do lists with me. Nice tip from Mark Shampine too (90° turn into landscape)
