Well, it’s about time! The Google Calendar (web version) has FINALLY had a makeover to bring it up to date and in line with it’s mobile design, making it look all modern and pretty (because let’s face it, the old calendar was looking rather outdated).
The fresh new look started to roll out on 17th October 2017. Some users may already have the updated version, whilst others are still waiting. You can find instructions to see if you are able to update your calendar here.
Google Calendar Helping Businesses to get Organised
As well as bringing the design side of things up to date and making the calendar responsive, Google has also added some features to help benefit businesses, making it easier for them to organise, schedule and prepare for meetings:
Set a location to tell your contact exactly where your meeting will be; what building or room it will be in and what facilities does the room provide.
Guests and Contact Details
Find out who else will be attending a meeting and find out a contact’s information by hovering over their names.
Have some documents you’d like to share within a meeting? Now you can add relevant documents to your appointment, allowing every attendee to see and download the documents.
If you have multiple calendars that you use, you will now be able to view and manage them side-by-side.
Check out these videos and blog to get a better idea of how these new features can be used to help your business get organised.
