The New Google Calendar

A new Google Calendar is on its way! Since 2011, the look and feel of Google Calendar have remained untouched. As of October 2017, Google Calendar for the Web has a new refreshed design. The colors have been modernized, the calendar design is sleek, and many new features have been added, and others have been discontinued.

Google will be migrating calendar users from the old calendar interface to the new interface, over the course of November, and not everyone may get the new calendar at the same time.  As you navigate through the new look and feel of the modernized Google Calendar, you will notice that many aspects of the calendar still remain familiar, including the process of creating events, navigation, and inviting guests.

To assist you in the transition process, Information and Library Services will be hosting several workshops and webinars to get you acquainted with the new Google Calendar. These workshops and webinars will introduce you to the new look and feel of the interface, explore some of the new features, and discuss the features that are no longer available.

Prerequisites: Participants should be comfortable with utilizing a computer with Microsoft Windows 7, comfortable with using and navigating websites with a web browser, familiar with G Suite – Bates Gmail, and knowledge of your Bates username and password.
