Google has recently released a new revamped version of Google Calendar on the web. The new Calendar comes with a bunch of interesting features that will help you manage your time and tasks more efficiently. Some of these features are also geared towards enhancing teams schedule and collaborative work. Here is a brief overview of the 3 main updates that stand out to us:
1- Add rich formatting and hyperlinks to your Calendar invites
‘Link to relevant spreadsheets, documents or presentations in your Calendar invite and open them directly from the new “Event Detail” view. This can help you create more detailed agendas and ensure all materials are in one place before your meeting starts.’
2- Manage multiple calendars side by side in “Day” view‘Now you can view and manage calendars in separate columns. This makes it easier for employees who manage multiple calendars, like administrative assistants, to schedule meetings on behalf of their teams. Click “Day” view and select the calendars you want to compare.’3- Access contact information of meeting participants‘Now you can see contact information of meeting participants when you hover over their names in a Calendar invite. There’s also a new way to view and restore deleted items in one place in case you accidentally delete a meeting invite. Additionally, “Day,” “Week,” and “Month” views are now more accessible, featuring better compatibility with screen readers.’Check out this page to learn more about the new Google Calendar.
