My overall experience with Google calendar has been a very positive and helpful one, and even when I purchasing a new device is my Google calendar is saved into my Google account so the same events in calendar will appear in my new device.

Pros

Google calendar is very easy to use, and it is a very convenient way to input and organize your upcoming events and appointments, such as important doctor's appointments and birthdays. You can also import data from an email straight into your Google calendar when you check your Gmail.

Cons

I have absolutely no dislikes for this software, it has helped me remember important events and appointments due to my diagnosis of short term memory loss.

Thanks to Google Calendar, I have been on top of all of my personal, social, and work events, appointments, and emails. Google's integration and synchronization will keep me a loyal user for years to come. I have been so for 13 years and plan to double this, easily.

Pros

I first started using Google Calendar at the age of 12. Being 25 now it has made scheduling, remembering, and managing multiple schedules effortless. The synchronization and integration across multiple Google platforms have been my favorite.

Cons

A major disadvantage is Google's customer support. I ran into an issue where my account was accessed elsewhere without my knowledge. Al of my data, photos, accounts were accessed, altered, and deleted. I sought Google's help for months. Not only did they take months to reach out to me, but they were also no help whatsoever in the end.

iCloud

Reasons for Choosing Google Calendar

At the time of the switch, Google seemed to be the leading brand. That was 13 years ago. I am glad I made the switch. It has been superior by far.

iCloud's synchronization has let me down on multiple occasions. I have yet to experience any similar issues using Google.

My honest opinion

Reviewed on 27/12/2021

Pros

I like being able to switch how to view the calendar between viewing the entire month or by schedule or week. I also like how it can easily sync events and tasks from the other Google based apps like contacts, Google tasks and Gmail. It's got an easy UI and I feel like it's simple enough that anyone can figure out how to use it as long as they take the time to look through it.

Cons

Now, for me, the biggest disappointment that I have is not having any way possible to enable the phases of the moon on the Google calendar mobile app. In the setting for both mobile and web, it has multiple options of syncing, especially syncing across platforms, however, the moon phase feature is apparently only available for the PC web version of Google calendar. Again it's disappointing, especially for a Google based Android phone. Also for the mobile app, the other feature I'm surprised isn't available is the ability to customize the widgets.

Google Calendar has changed the way we do business in our office and across our organization. This has helped us to increase efficiency in planning and improved how comfortable employees are with technology. Even those who were late adopters (because of resistance to integration of technology) have found Google Calendar easy to use and helpful in managing different parts of their work flow.

Pros

Google has made it so easy to manage even the busiest calendars. The share feature allows multiple people to have simultaneous access, which is convenient now even more than before with team members working from a variety of locations. Changes to the calendar are done in real time, so there is little to no delay in being able to schedule and confirm appointments. With so many videoconferencing meetings nowadays, the ability to invite multiple people via Google Calendar makes it easy for the scheduler, but also easy for the recipients who see it on their calendar and can visually see if there are any conflicts before deciding to accept or decline the invite. The description and location fields within the calendar provide additional details to all be in a single invite, so no more frantically looking through emails for sign-on information.

Cons

I appreciate the colors to differentiate between the various types of appointments. It would be great if users had the ability to color code based on their distinct needs, which aren't always linked to the type of appointment category they fall in.

Calendly

Reasons for Switching to Google Calendar

Our organization already uses other Google products, so it made sense to stick with the Google suite of products. Additionally, Google provides flexibility to bring in appointments from a variety of platforms that Calendly didn't offer at the time we were researching and evaluating different products.

I am able to meet all my deadlines, tasks and meetings by using Google Calendar, it reminds me of all my upcoming appointments, tasks, meetings. I work with clients who are in the healthcare field and do not have time to waste waiting on me, with Google calendar I can get this done.

Pros

Google calendar is mobile and easy to use. I am a small business and do not have a lot of time to input information into software to stay on top of all my appointments, meetings and tasks. Google Calendar takes very little time to input and it will remind me of everything on my laptop, phone and tablet.

Cons

I am hard pressed to find anything that I least like about Google Calendar. It fits all my needs and is so easy to use.
