Google Calendar is a great tool to manage your time and stay on top of the events and meetings that you need to attend, but don’t always remember to mark on your calendar. From birthdays, anniversaries and renewals, to ultimately planning this month’s vacation or travel plans for your family members, Google Calendar allows you to do everything you need in one convenient place. Sounds pretty good when you don’t have tons of storage space hunting down long-forgotten dinners, parties and family events with a stack of paper calendars from numerous sources just doesn’t seem worth it any more.
What Does Google Calendar Do?
If you’re like most people, you use Google Calendar to manage your important events. You might have a meeting scheduled for next week, or you might want to remember to pick up your kid from soccer practice. But what happens if you accidentally delete a Google Calendar event? Or if you switch computers and lose the calendar files?
Google Calendar keeps event information for about two years. After that, it’ll start to drop information back down to the “Drafts” level. So if you deleted an event that was 2 years old, it won’t show up in your calendar anymore, but you can still see the details in Google’s search results. If you need to reference an event from two years ago, just open the draft and copy the information down.
Can Google Calendar be Used on Any Device?
Although Google Calendar is exclusively used on the web, that doesn’t mean it isn’t usable on other devices. The app can be installed on both Android and iOS devices, making it a great choice for anyone looking to keep up with their schedule no matter where they are. Additionally, you can access your calendar even when you’re not connected to the internet.
Customizing the SPING Engagement Score
Google Calendar is a great way to keep track of your events and appointments, but you may want to tweak the SPING Engagement Score to increase the likelihood that your events will show up in people’s calendars. You can adjust the score for each event by clicking on the “Edit Event” link next to it and then clicking on the “Engagement Score” tab. Optimal scores range from 0 to 100, with 50 being average. You can also increase or decrease the importance of an event by lowering or raising its priority rating.
Keep Events On My Account and Repeating Events
Google Calendar is a great way to keep track of your events and to repeat events that you may have missed the first time. If you delete an event from your calendar, it will be gone for good. However, if you save an event and then delete it, Google Calendar will not automatically remove the event from your calendar. This means that if you want to avoid having multiple versions of the same event on your calendar, it’s best to save the event and then delete it from your calendar. Check Your Calendar History. Although every event in your calendar displays as a reminder, it’s helpful to search your calendar—especially for events you’ve marked as starred—to see that an event previously had particular expectations about when and how it would occur. For example, Tim heeds the call of duty and plans to attend his daughter’s wedding reception on May 5, which prompts him to boot up Palm Desktop one week prior to the official invitation delivery date so that that he can view her married
Remove Calendar Accounts to allow Event Accessibility
If you need to remove your Google Calendar account in order to let someone else access the events associated with it, you’ll need to do so before the calendar’s data is deleted. Deleting an account won’t delete the data related to Events that have already been created; these will still be viewable in Calendars on other devices and in the web app. If you need to remove your calendar entirely, be sure to do so before Google removes your account from its systems. true
If you’re looking for a way to keep an event on your Google Calendar account forever, you may be wondering how long the calendar will keep an event. In general, calendar data is stored on Google’s servers for up to 6 months after an event’s date. However, if the event is marked as high priority, it will be kept longer and may even be stored indefinitely. If you need to remove an event from your calendar account, you can do so by deleting it from your Google Account website or by canceling its associated event on your calendar.
