Google Rolls Out New Look Calendar

Google Calendar

Google is rolling out a fresh design and new features for Google Calendar this week.

The update brings the desktop version up to speed with the mobile app version, with a new colour scheme and design, as well as extra features for businesses and teams.

These include the ability for G Suite admins to see details about conference rooms when booking a room, so employees know where it is and what resources it has.

You can also now link to relevant spreadsheets, documents or presentations in Calendar, and open them directly from the new “Event Detail” view.

Google now also allows users to manage multiple calendars side by side in the “Day” view.

This is designed to “make it easier for employees who manage multiple calendars, like administrative assistants, to schedule meetings on behalf of their teams.”

Other updates include the addition of extra contact information for meeting participants, a new way to view and restore deleted items, and better day, week and month views.

The new changes can now be enabled by all G Suite admins as of yesterday.
