Our family is pretty busy. With two working adults and five kids it takes some serious planning. To keep track of where everyone is and where they need to be. Like many families, we use shared calendars to do this. But we also have work calendars through Google Apps, as well as using iCloud for personal stuff. And, when I tried to share my Google Apps work calendar with my wife, I discovered that it's not as easy as it sounds and Google's help for making this work is terrible. Eventually, I solved the problem. Here's how I made it work.

Google calendar makes it easy to remember events by sending you notifications on your phone, computer and by email, depending on what settings you select. And if you use it strategically, the "Create Event" feature is also a convenient way to set automatic reminders for your due dates so you don’t accidentally blow past deadlines and incur fees.
Google’s updated version of Calendar — which you can no longer opt out of — is lovely to look at and easier to work with than its previous version. However, the omission of one major feature from Calendar’s new “material design” version seems to be annoying a number of users (including yours truly): The ability to block off hours when you’re sleeping.
Gmail and Google Calendar integration is an embarrassment. Gmail can never recognise all the crucial event info, and to fix it you have to open up Google Calendar in a new tab, defeating the purpose. Thankfully there are third-party fixes, such as Pod for Gmail, which recognises event info and loads it into a full calendar event right inside your Gmail window.
Google Home, the search giant's answer to Amazon's Echo speaker, launched with at least one glaring omission: The ability to access and manage multiple calendars. That's particularly surprising considering that so may people use Google's own Calendar app to organise their lives, but, thankfully, the company now seems to be rolling out an overdue update.
In today's fast-paced world, staying on top of your daily to-dos is no easy feat. While tools like Google Calendar and Drive help organise your workload, having your tasks spread across multiple apps tends to make things slip through the cracks. That's where Moo.do Premium comes into play.
It's easy enough to add events to Google Calendar, and you can even do it from your email. If you use Chrome, there's another way to add events quickly directly from your address bar.
Google Calendar isn't just for remembering your appointments and meetings any more, because it now has a far more productive feature built into it, one that helps you set goals and work toward them over time. Whether you want to start working out more often or need to finish the David Foster Wallace novel, here's how Google Calendar can help.
Android/iOS: Google's getting better at finding free time in your schedule. It only makes sense that it should be able to let you know when you're about to double book yourself. Now it can.
Google's lightweight, versatile Calendar app runs across the web and multiple mobile platforms to keep our lives organised. But just how deep have you delved into the more advanced features that it offers? Read on to go beyond the basics of appointment scheduling and calendar colours to get more out of this powerful agenda-setting tool.
Briefly: A small update to Google Calendar for Android today makes it easier to check if your accounts are properly synced. The update follows some new reminder features just a few days ago.
