How do I get notified of events and reminders; do I have to run Chrome?
Reginald Marselus (10 days ago)
Hi Steve, Surprisingly, while I had all of my Google apps gathered into a single app compartment, my Google calendar was not included in the install of the Google app environment. So, watching your video, I found out that my Google calendar needed to be loaded from the app store. In a wonderful experience, as soon as I downloaded the Google Calendar app, it immediately synced with everything I had going on. What a wonderful surprising thing. Now, my Google Calendar is fully operational. Thank you for the tip. I cannot believe that I had not done this yet. I am shaking my head at my lack of realizing that it was not there on my phone. NOT ANY MORE!!!! All the best

Your helpful videos have been popping up constantly on my YouTube front page, recently. I think it's time to sub. I didn't see how calenders could be this helpful for our daily routines and such.

Thank you for the great tips on Google calendar! I use Trello (mostly work) and Google Keep (mostly personal) as tools to track lists of things to do. By chance, do you know if there's a way to get Google Keep reminders to show up on Google calendar and/or if there's an effective way to track them if they don't get done on time so they can be rescheduled. From my experience, it seems that Google Keep only has soft reminders that you have to proactively track down. Thank you!

Hi Steve, I love your channel with good information and advice. I am trying to switch from iPhone calender mail and contacts to Google. Mail and Calender is looking good but how about Contacts. I love iPhone/Mac contacts with smart folders. Please make a video about Google Contacs. Thanks from a hot Stockholm.

What I really would like to know how I "fix" the google calendar "indent" problem... When I have an appointment which needs a twenty minutes slot and I need half an hour to get there and to get back - at least one of the blocks get shifted to the right. So if , lets say, my appointment is from 12:20 to 12:40 and I want to insert a block for driving back to my workplace I need to add this block from 12:50 to 13:10 - otherwise it would get shifted to the left. This really bugs me as this seems to be purely coincidentally... At other days with other values it works

Great video! I also come to your channel when I'm looking for information about various programs and apps. In this video, you recommend using the same app across devices but I don't like the google calendar app. I don't like the look of it or the functionality. I use Business Calendar 2 pro on my phone and google cal on my desktop. Is this really super important?

What happened to the public calendar search? Also, can you make a single calendar and use multiple colours (like a single team calendar, with sub calendars for different projects), or do I have to make multiple calendars and share each one of them? Google seems to be removing a lot of thing I used to use, which is why I've been seeking alternatives.

Great video as the other ones. Steve, I have a question: I have 2 google accoints, one personal and one business. I work also my home computer so basically I have both accounts signed in in work and home computer and smartphone(Samsung). How could I manage the calendar so that I have all the accounts calendars visible in my calendar? In computer the calendar is showing only calendars with specific account... is it just by sharing the calendars? Does this create duplicate events in the smartphone app?
Esko Hakala (5 months ago)
dottotech i am using google calendar, it feels more suitable for me. I have both business & personal account logged in with my smartphone so I can easily see both accounts calender contents. Just that when using google calendar on chrome with home or work computer, I can see only the calendars from the account I am logged in with.. wondering that should I share the personal and business account calendars to each accounts so that basically both accounts can see both calendars?
dottotech (5 months ago)
Not "duplicate" but synced, there is a difference. You subscribe to or share calendars and can turn them on or off with Google calendar, Not sure if you are using the Samsung calendar which is entirely different.
Zoch Buppet (5 months ago)
I use rainlendar on desktop and never reinstalled outlook at home the last time I reinstalled windows, and I have avoided Google calendar for years because of how much they rape your personal information. I was planning on using another online calendar for home, but now that i've seen the up grade, I guess I will have to throw in the towel on trying to protect my personal info from Google.

Hey Steve, I'm going through a heck of a time with my new google calendar. For the life of me, I can't find how to get a daily agenda like I had sent to me with the old calendar. Has this feature been removed? I click my cog > settings > and try to find notifications but there's no option for that. What am I doing wrong? Thanks up front, you da man.
Nancy M (3 months ago)
Angela Owens, try this. When you're looking at the calendar you want, go up (top right) and click the gear > settings. NOW, on the left, select the calendar you want (again). That opens a new and different settings window. On the left hand side select GENERAL NOTIFICATIONS. You'll see the Daily Agenda listed last there and it offers a button on the right to select NONE or EMAIL. Hope that helps a little. This is so darn annoying.
Angela Owens (3 months ago)
Hi! Found this comment after much searching and am wondering where the agenda feature is. I went to Settings and selected the calendar I need viewed in Agenda Mode but there is nothing under those options referring to an Agenda Mode or a View Mode for that matter
Nancy M (5 months ago)
Thanks So Much! Now we'll see if it shows up tomorrow morning. Thanks, Steve.
dottotech (5 months ago)
Nancy, it is so confusing, I took time to figure it out myself! When you go into settings you NEED TO SELECT THE CALENDAR YOU WANT THE AGENDA FROM, not the general settings. You will find the agenda feature then

Kelly Hardin (6 months ago)
I'm watching all your videos today... I have another question. I had set a repeating calendar event for a specific time that would repeat daily for one month for the entire company (23 ppl). When I set it up (exactly as that) the calendar repeated the event over and over and on 23 other peoples calendars. I attempted to delete the event but it didn't delete them all. I actually had to go into specific days to remove them. It wasn't until we edited the event to remove a DATE range (30 days) and selected "repeat daily" at a specific time - there we could put the end date. Weirdest thing ever ! Why did this happen?

Love your videos. I must say that as a longtime Google Cal user, I'm not very fond of the big red "plus" button blocking part of the calendar.. I think they could have easily put that off to the side, outside of the calendar's view. It would also be cool if there was a button allowing us to jump to a specific date instead of those arrows at the top of the page.

With location, is there a way to set most frequent locations so you don't have to type it out each time. You can select from a short list. Is that an option?
Brandon Krieger (7 months ago)
That is to bad, I find with the autofill I am receiving locations that are not the ones I am looking for until I type in majority of the address. It would be nice if it would come up with the ones you most frequent to make it easier to enter in.
dottotech (7 months ago)
It will attempt to autofill, but I am not aware of a list you can edit.

Hi Steve, thank you for your generous and smart approaches to all Google stuff. I really appreciate all of your videos, cause thanks to all of them, I can develop and implement a lot of this knowledge on my entrepreneurship cloud system. But I'm stuck right now trying to incorporate into my google calendar (using google forms or sheets) something like a scheduled deliveries, i.e. if a client request a delivery today, and I'm able to select how many days in between the next request, then make a kind of automatic calendar event or notification alarm to be ready for the next delivery... I'm filling a manual calendar on my wall, but the idea is to notify and share related info with my partner and other personal involved in the process.
german andres garces (7 months ago)
Thank you Steve, always my best wishes for you ;)

I think you are going to have to use an external tool, like IFTTT to make this happen. But it should be very doable wuing IFTTT or Zapier.

Have you seen Clara? Meet your new best virtual friend/assistant https://claralabs.com/ I think with all the stuff you do within google calendar, you can set up all kinds of integrations, reminders etc. Clara will engage tasks automatically for you, setting up meetings, coordinating schedules and getting everyone together for you. All you have to to is BE PRESENT at the agreed scheduled time. How cool is that? It will actually free up your time and reduce stress lol.

So my old Android phone died last week and I took the plunge on the Google Pixel 2 XL... and just realized that it already made the choice for me on the "native" calendar :p ... so that handshaking you describe doesn't apply unless I make it by using some other app... and that ain't gonna happen.

Hey Steve... I'm a bit frustrated been using Google calendar for years... and this is my dilemma, I manage about 8 calendars... and have used the calendar to 1 update changes to a calendar, and send an email about the changes to others .. Updates part works great, but to the life of me, i can't see where to send an email about the calendar changes. Some end users don't want calendar updates, just the information of the changes... aka an email. Can you help? BTW.. digging your channel!!

Not-so-simple question - I have a simple requirement. I have to schedule a meeting on the 5th of every month. And ... if the 5th falls on a Saturday, Sunday then schedule it on the preceding Friday. And ... if the 5th is a Federal Holiday (i.e. if July 5th falls on a Monday) then schedule the meeting on the preceding Friday. Two simple scheduling rules. I would assume then that the date is automatically put on the calendar and everyone who shares that calendar is notified. I know that the Microsoft Calendar cannot do it ... what about Google. I tried with no success. Second question ... half my organization uses Hotmail, MS calendar and the other half uses a variety ... mostly Apple. How do I seamlessly integrate the Google calendar with the iOS calendar on the iPhone and iPad at the back end.

I enjoy your videos. I am presently using Evernote, OneDrive, and looking for a good note taking App. I have tried most of them but I am leaning towards Noteshelf 2 and GoodNotes 4. I am a Construction Inspector that inspects residential and commercial new construction. The way this works is I have several Banks and Mortgage Companies that send me a form off my website for me to check a construction site to see how much work has been done by the contractor. I go to the site and take pictures and fill out a report, that gives me a percentage of completion, and then I email the Loan officer the pictures and report so they can determine how much draw, money, they can give to the customer. So I need a big notebook or File, The Mortgage Company, and inside I need a file or notebook for the Loan Officer and inside that I need Property one, Property 2, Property 3, which in that I need Request for inspection, Pictures, Report, Emails, Text, Everyday notes, and possibly more. I have tried Evernote but it will only Stack 2 and I mess up using the tags. I do back up to Evernote, OneDrive, and I Cloud. Which program do you think would suit my needs best? Thanks.

my immediate response would be to check our OneNote, it is more hierarchical than Evernote, more structure. Have a look at it.

I have a couple things I wish Google Calendar would do. MS Outlook does these. 1) allow for repeating tasks 2) show tasks and reminders on the main calendar. I don't understand why they haven't provided these features.
I used to be able to print the calendar "details" or "description" & now I cant. Any way to still do this with the 2018 Calendar? It doesn't give me the option to return to the Classic view. Thanks!

I'm intrigued by the way that Google Calendar attaches the data of people, and places (and possibly other things as well) to the events. Is this primarily from contacts or from app? If it is from Contacts , I can see a lot of congestion between persona contacts, active business contacts, restaurants etc,and (for instance) local conference rooms. How do youu sea with this?

@DottoTech, Excellent content, as always. You got me hooked on Google Calendar years ago. You asked about the new format. The look is good but the transition sounds are a little loud. Seems like they should be a little more subdued. Speaking of looks: good job on the weight loss. You said a couple of times in the Evernote webinar about just getting back from working out. You are inspiring me to get back up on the wagon!!

ahall3823 (8 months ago)
I don't like Google calendar for this simple reason. Google searches your calendar appointments and then sends you advertising based on your calendar events. This is not acceptable to me from a privacy perspective.
what actually matters (8 months ago)
ahall3823 it’s true and given that google was seed-funded by the alphabet agencies (NSA DARPA CIA DOD, Stanford cover using Brin and Page) and Schmidt who famously said “we want to give you the ONLY answer” (regarding Search) I cant help seeing everyone with a gmail email as some government dupe. I had Gmail since it was invite only but it all felt so dirty, I had to exit. I have a relative at Google, I know what they are doing there. And Schmidt was a government overseer who belongs to the trilateral commission, his father worked for Nixon. 🙁 Sorry, I hate being a downer spreading the truth behind Google.
ahall3823 (8 months ago)
Regardless of your 'settings' Google collects information from your calendar...
dottotech (8 months ago)
You can adjust ad settings, but I do not believe Google sends you ads based on your Calendar events. They base it on your web searches, sites you visit etc.

Hi Steve, love the new format video and bringing these back! I would love to switch to Google Calendar from my current calendar - iCal but I am afraid to do so. What are you thoughts about the privacy aspect of going with Google knowing they'll be mining my data in order to sell ads? That's what I'm particularly afraid of from switching from iCal to Google Calendar.
dottotech (8 months ago)
We give up a certain amount of privacy with every tool, I personally accept the convinience trade off, but understand other reluctance to do so. Having said that, I don''t think Google Cal feeds into the ad system (I may be wrong).
Leigh Gistinger (8 months ago)
Hey Steve. Enjoy the new format. I have a problem with my google calendar when accessed online from my iPad (havnt tried from my iMac yet)-it makes me select a button twice to create the action-it wants to show me what the button is used for instead of doing the action. For example tapping on the arrow to move from one month to the next. I was hoping to upload a photo to show what i am talking about but don’t think I can. Ive looked in setting and cant seem to find... It’s driving me crazy-can you save me from insanity? :)
Leigh Gistinger (8 months ago)
Dotto tech- yes Steve u are right -it is in the browser view and not the app that I’m having this problem . Unfortunately The browser view is more appealing to my eye- perhaps I just need to go in and change all my calendar colors to suit my preferences on the app to see if that helps . The browser version has just a more appealing look to it. It doesn’t appear as if the google iOS app has much room for visual change and I love how the browser one lightens the background on days/actions gone by in the month day and week view to easily find “where u are” :). Not sure why there are lines Thru my text??
dottotech (8 months ago)
Are you using Google Cal in the browser, or the Calendar App? That may make a difference.
Mary Kaebnick (8 months ago)

Robert Michon (8 months ago)
First- very much agree with your "use ONE calendar app." But Google is not reliable in its CORE functionality. I live and die by my calendar. And since the "upgrade," I've found that sometimes events I create aren't saved and you get a little "Oops" message at the bottom of the screen that you won't even see if the screen isn't maximized. I've also had NUMEROUS attempts to duplicate appointments that didn't take, as well. I actually have it on screen cap because it was happening so frequently. So while all the new integrations are nice, if it can't save appointments I'm creating? It starts to remind me of... Skype. Also, fixing the clumsiness with incorporating icals is... overdue. Anyway, keep up the great work- your content is hugely valuable.

I’m trying to use one place for contacts namely Google contacts, but my iPhone has contacts which I can’t track down the source of. Peril of moving from Google to Exchange to Outlook.com to IPhone then back to Google. As for trying to extract the contacts from to iPhone and get them into Google ...... I gave up at that point.
