Why we love the new features on Google Calendar for web
1. See conference room details when booking a room. As an administrator for G Suite, you can now provide detailed information about organization’s conference room — therefore staffs are aware of exactly where a conference room is located, precisely how large it is, as well as whether or not it includes audio/video equipment or possibly is wheelchair accessible. Staffs members can easily hover over the room name in Calendar the moment they decide to book a space, and a hovercard will pop up with information regarding the conference location and resources.
2. Use rich formatting and hyperlinks to your Calendar invites. Want to link important spreadsheets, documents or presentations in your Calendar invite and open them directly from the new “Event Detail” view. This could certainly allow you to create more in-depth agendas and be certain that all materials are in one place before your meeting starts.
3. Manage multiple calendars side-by-side in “Day” view. you can now view and manage calendars in independent columns. This clearly informs that it faster and easier for staffs who manage multiple calendars, like administrative assistants, to schedule meetings on behalf of their teams. Click on “Day” view and select the calendars you would like to compare.
4. Customise your calendar
The Calendar app offers more customisation options to users, who can choose to show or hide weekends if there are no meetings on those days. Users can see two or more calendars from different people side by side. Users can also decide the colour set and density of a calendar through the Settings icon. Different colours and shades can be used as identifiers for a calendar or a meeting.
5. Recover deleted items
If you have accidentally deleted a calendar or meeting, you don’t have to create one from the beginning. All the deleted items will be parked in the Trash box where you get the option to restore files. To access the Trash box, click on the Settings icon and go to Trash.
