Google Calendar at Wellesley College

Organizing your schedule shouldn’t be a burden. With Google Calendar, it’s easy to keep track of life’s important events all in one place.

Out of Office

When creating an 'Out of Office' or 'Vacation' event, Google may automatically decline existing and new events during that time, and also make the event publically viewable to people who can see your calendar.  If you don't like this feature, when creating your event, choose 'Event' instead of 'Out of office' as the event type, under the title of the event.

Scheduling and other calendar basics

Get started on Google Calendar here with these basics functions such as scheduling events, attachments and printing.

Share your schedule

Let your co-workers, family, and friends see your calendar, and view schedules that others have shared with you. When you know when everyone is free or busy, scheduling is a snap.

Adjust your working hours

Let people know what times you're working so they don't invite you when you're off.  This is a way of letting people know when you're taking flex time in the summer.

Get your calendar on the go

With two-way syncing to your mobile phone’s built-in calendar or a mobile version of Google Calendar that’s made for the small screen, you can access your calendar while you’re away from your desk.

Never forget another event again

Customizable reminders help you stay on schedule. You can choose to be notified by email or get a text message sent right to your mobile phone.

Send invitations and track RSVPs

Invite other people to events on your calendar. Guests can RSVP to your events by email or via Google Calendar.

Sync with your desktop applications

Access your calendar however and whenever you want by syncing events with Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal and Mozilla Sunbird.

Work offline

Know where you’re supposed to be even when you don’t have internet access. With offline access, you can view a read-only version of your calendar no matter where you are
