Never forget an appointment again with Google’s handy calendar.


Google Calendar is a continuous calendar where you keep track of all your appointments and use birthdays. Create multiple calendars if necessary. For example, you can create a calendar where you store all birthdays and a separate calendar for your volunteer work. Each calendar has its own color. This way you can see at a glance what you are dealing with. If you have several devices in addition to the PC, such as a smartphone or tablet, you have access to your agenda everywhere. In this article, we’ll discuss Google Calendar on PC.

    Open Google Calendar like this:

    • surf to Google Calendar.
    • Sign in with your Google account if you need to.
    • The calendar opens automatically.

    Google’s calendar is easy to use. Put an appointment in the agenda like this:

    • Click on a date and time in the calendar to schedule an appointment.
    • If necessary, first go to another month via the arrows at the top left.
    • Enter your appointment at ‘Add title’.
    • click on Save.

    Do you want to enter detailed information with the appointment (such as a place), or adjust the time? You have the following options:

    • Click on your scheduled appointment in the calendar.
    • Click on a pencil icon Edit event in Google Calendar.
    • In the first text box you can change the title of the appointment.
    • Change the day of the appointment if necessary. To do this, click on the set date and select another day.

    • It is useful to get a reminder for every appointment. By default, this is set to thirty minutes, but you can also receive the reminder earlier or later. Enter behind ‘Notification’ how far in advance you would like to receive a reminder.
    • Color your appointment. This way you can give important appointments a different color than less important appointments.
