More Info

Google's calendar service has made many lives easy. You can plan and schedule events without worrying about what if you forget about them. This feature can alert you on time. Another good thing about this feature is its availability across different platforms - mobile and desktop. Due to this, you can search for an event anywhere on the go by filtering it by date, location, and other parameters. However, you may not be comfortable accessing this everywhere due to the lack of awareness. If this is the case, you don't need to bother. Here is a quick brief on how you can search for desired items in calendar regardless of whether you use iPhone, Android mobile, PC, or Mac.

Accessing Google Calendar on desktop

You can be a PC or Mac user who needs to browse through the events. For this, you have to open your browser window and visit calendar.google.com. Log into your account.

In the top right of your calendar window, there will be a magnifying glass. When you click on this, a search toolbar appears.

Write the search phrase in the toolbar. Google will prompt you about people, events, and other matching terms. Choose the one that syncs with your query. Just remember, Google will look for information across different products, such as Google Drive and Gmail. If you click there, you can jump to another app. So, be careful.

On the right side of the search toolbar, you can see a small reverse arrow. You can click and type calendar name, details of an event, name of the meeting, owner of the meeting, location, date range, and so on. The desired results will pop up eventually.

Accessing Google Calendar on mobile

Whether you are a busy professional or have to travel a lot, you can be comfortable using the calendar on your mobile device the most. If you have to filter an event on this device, you can go to your Google Calendar app and tap on the menu on the top left side of the screen. The menu appears as the three flat lines. Select search and enter the terms or events you wanted to see. The moment you click on search, a list of matching results will open.

These are some simple and useful hacks to maintain and manage your workload, meetings, and events with Calendar. If you want to be productive, you can keep learning and applying the tricks. For instance, there are specific hotkeys for a calendar that helps you with the viewing, editing, and working with events, notes, and tasks. You don't have to take a long route to act. With one key, you can achieve your goal. To be precise, you can use 'R' to refresh calendar, 'S' to visit settings, 'E' to view events, and so on.

Familiarity with multiple calendar functions can also reduce your work-related stress, at least from one side. No matter how packed your day has been, your knowledge of the calendar functionalities will not let you feel hassled when it comes to creating or keeping up with the critical events.
