Google is releasing a new Calendar look, and it’s now available for your Cedarville G Suite account. You can choose to opt-in now or continue with the current calendar view until February 28, 2018, when Google Calendar will automatically transition to the new web interface. We recommend trying the new calendar to prepare for the switch next year.

Among its many features, the new Calendar offers:

  • Side-by-side daily views to see the schedules of other Calendar users
  • The ability to add rich formatting and hyperlinks in the event description box
  • Event detail access (e.g., guest list, location, attachments) at a glance
  • A new “add event” button to quickly schedule an appointment or other task

To use the new Google Calendar now:

  • Select the blue “Use new Calendar” link in the top right-hand corner of your Google Calendar
  • Select “Upgrade now”

 To switch back to the “classic Calendar” until February 28, 2018:

  • Select the “gear” icon in the top right-hand corner of your Google Calendar
  • Select “Back to classic Calendar”
  • Select Back to Classic
