How can I make a personal Google calendar show times as busy when coworkers of mine schedule appointments with our Google Apps at work?

I have a personal Google calendar, associated with my own personal Google account, and a work Google calendar, as part of my office’s Google Apps setup. Whenever co-workers of mine try to schedule appointments with me, they don’t see my personal calendar show up as “busy” times. I’ve been able to share my personal calendar with my work account, and I can see the calendar there and view appointments, but none of my personal appointments appear as busy times when a co-worker tries to schedule an appointment. Is there a way to set this up?

Is it possible to display the Notes from a diary event in Google Calendar?

I’m trying to set up a calendar for my sports club and then embed the calendar in Google Sites. I’m going to default it to the Agenda view, but when the user opens it up, I’d like them to see the When, Where and Notes, so I can include who is leading the event, or more information (a link to an external website etc).

If this isn’t possible, am I able to get a mouse over hover tip to display with the Notes?

Sharepoint calendar webpart connected with filter

I have a requirement in SharePoint Online/Office365 in which following things are needed.

Calendar list with custom field “Category”, type is choice (Holidays, Events, Others) Need to creates as a drop down in which above field’s value should bind.The View to be used is Calendar View, I have already tried SharePoint list filter and list view webpart but only AllEvents view is supported and Calendar view is not. I strictly want to use Calendar View. Is there any way to do it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Can I filter a SharePoint Calendar? Is such a thing possible?

It strange that for something that sounds so simple and common, it is most likely impossible. When I first approached this request I never thought I’d end up here typing out my problem …

I added a calendar web part to my SharePoint 2010 page. Out of the box it works fine and does what it’s designed to do.

I would like to be able to filter the calendar based on what a users selects in a drop down or enters into a text box. When they hit enter or press a button some sort of filtering action should occur, such as calendar events are returned, or parts of the calendar are highlighted, or something similar.

Is there any simple, straight forward way to do this? I’d prefer not to start writing PowerShell scripts or C# classes.

Also, if someone is certain that this is just simply not possible please let me know. I don’t want to chase after something that is not possible.

Thanks!

Migrate user mailbox calendar to public folder (shared calendar) in Exchange

We use Exchange 2016. A user shares his calendar with other users through Outlook (2010, 2013). To decouple this calendar from his mailbox and make it a shared calendar, we want to port it to a public folder preferably using PowerShell.

So far, we have exported (not even sure if this succeeded) the calendar with:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox a.user -IncludeFolders "#Calendar#" -FilePath \PST\user.pst 

How do we import the user.pst in to a public folder?

Cannot add Calendar Resource to My Calendars

I have a G Suite Meeting Room and I want to manage its calendar. I’m following the instructions on this page to add a Calendar Resource to “My Calendars”, however the section My Calendars (capital C) and referenced “+” button in Step 2 below is not present.

Note: This question is specifically to add the calendar to “My calendars” so it can be managed, not to “Other calendars” where it cannot be managed or edited.

What am I missing to complete these instructions?

Here’s the instructions:

  • https://support.google.com/a/answer/60766

I have the following pre-requisites:

  • “administrator account with Calendar and Super Admin privileges”
  • “a calendar resource (such as a meeting room) for your organization” – resource with “Calendar-based room release” set to “On” and “Type” set to “Conference Room”

Instructions

Here’s the screenshot from my user with the required “administrator account with Calendar and Super Admin privileges”. There’s no My Calendars (capital C) or “+” as specified in Step 2 above, but My calendars (lowercase C) does exist without a “+”.

Here are the steps:

How can I find the default New Event duration on Mojave’s Calendar app [on hold]

I am running Mojave 14.5 on a new MacMini i7. When a new event is started, the default time is always 9am to 10am. I work late and often miss the alerts. I would like to set new default values or just make the default to be all day. I do realize that I can modify the default duration for each new entry manually. I have followed previous threads on modifying the default duration using terminal command: defaults write com.apple.iCal 'Default duration in minutes for new event' 15, but that does not seem to work with Mojave. An answer on GitHub https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dotfiles/issues/849 helped to find the preferences in containers, I used terminal to read out the preferences as shown below. I would like to know which pref controls the event default duration and the command syntax to change it. Any advise or help is greatly appreciated. Casey Jay

Date dropdown vs calendar (users are employees)

I am developing a web application for a business that will be used by employees. Employees will input the effective date of a “policy”. Effective date can only range from current day to 30 days from current day. Most “policies” will take effect on current day, with a significant minority within the first week.

I am wondering what your thoughts are on the best date select UI in this scenario.

My thoughts:

  • Calendar is not bad because it gives feedback on day of the week and since user inputs will take place on the same month or the next (max is 3 months but only if current day is January 31st). If effective date != current date, I anticipate an average of 2-3 clicks.

  • Dropdowns, while usually annoying, might not be so annoying if I limit the day and month dropdown options depending on current day. For eg., if current day is June 12, the month dropdown has two options, and the day dropdown has 12-19 options depending on which month is selected. I see an average 2-4 clicks here, but it might go to 6 clicks if current day is on December because the year needs to be changed too.

What are your thoughts on this, and what do you think of limiting dropdown options strategy, is it confusing to see different days available for different months (eg. June range is 12 (current day) to 30) or is it good?

Is datepicker better?

Are there better UI options I’ve overlooked?
