Preview the new Google Calendar

You’ve waited a long time for the new Google Calendar and now it’s available in your NC State G Suite account. You can choose to opt-in now or continue with the current calendar view until Feb. 28, when Google Calendar will automatically transition to the new web interface.

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.

OIT will offer training on the new Google Calendar starting in December. To register for a workshop, visit REPORTER.

Please direct any questions to the NC State Help Desk at or 919.515.4357 (HELP).
