Here is a Google Calender snap . I have two queries here ..

Posted Image


Q1: What is the difference between Mini Calender and My Calender . I'm confused which one to use.


Q2: I see there are two calenders created under My Calenders . I can see them when I click small triangle under My Calender. How do I remove these two calenders ? I don't see Calender removal choice in Calender settings ....I tried deleting calenders from Calender's settings ...but it did not work.

The mini calendar shows you the full month see below.

This can be handy if your main calendar only shows a week or a day at a time, like my own.
You can use this to go directly to a particular date, it also highlights forthcoming events, in this case above the shows bold.

Not sure about the other question, hopefully one of the other members will chip in.

I've just gone and done a test for question 2. I created a second calendar, "TEST." The calendar appeared in my list of calendars. Then I went in to calendar settings where it list all the calendars, and next to each calendar there is an option to "delete." I selected that, it warned me that the calendar would be completely removed, I click "agree" and it disappeared.

EDIT: I have something under the calendar settings called "tasks." That cannot be deleted.

EDIT 2: Did you create the calendars that you are trying to delete?

EDIT 2: Did you create the calendars that you are trying to delete? //no I did not...it just came automatically.

I'm not sure what you're having issues with. Here is my list of calendars:

When I go in to calendar settings, I see this:

Each of the calendars that I have created I have the ability to remove. The only thing I cannot remove is the tasks option.

Maybe if you show us a screenshot of what you're seeing, we could help better.

I also get "Task" without a delete button same as yours .....is there anyway I can delete it ?

I also get another calender with delete button ....I click delete ...it alerts for data loss ....but finally it does not delete.

If I had to take a guess, I would say "no." There is no way to remove the Tasks.

For the other calendars, make sure you're reading the warning correctly:

You must check the box to get the delete option to appear:

Then the calendar should disappear. If it doesn't maybe try clearing your browser's cache, restarting the browser and checking Google calendar again.

I suggest looking in to other options, as Google Calendar doesn't seem to be working for you. Maybe add a reminder to your phone?

Thanks for your time.

Could you please tell which option I need choose from your screenshot ?

Is it New Events ? I guess it is because I'm gonna set up a new event ...right ? But I'm worried because it says You won't receive any email notification ....This is confusing.


>>>Maybe add a reminder to your phone?
Reminder to phone ? I guess they won't be cloud based solution then.....I want to set up reminders in internet only.
