Starting Tuesday November 14, 2017, a fresh look and new features will be available for Google Calendar on the web to help you manage your time more efficiently and get more done. The update also incorporates a modern color palette, sleek design, and a responsive layout that auto-adjusts to your screen size.
A button to try the new Calendar will appear in the upper-right of the Google Calendar for web screen beginning on Tuesday November 14, 2017:
The ability to switch back to the “classic” calendar will be available via the settings menu until the new Calendar becomes the default for everyone in February, 2018:
From Google regarding the new Google Calendar for Web:
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.
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.
There are a number of other changes in Calendar, too:
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.
