3. Opt for Agenda View for a Cleaner Layout

Switch to a more streamlined calendar view by selecting 'Schedule' (also known as Agenda View). This can be done from the view options usually located at the top right of the calendar. In this view, events are listed in chronological order without the traditional grid, making it easier to read your schedule for the day or week.

4. Expand Your Calendar with Holiday and Special Event Calendars

Enhance your Google Calendar by integrating additional calendars. Click on the '+' sign next to 'Other calendars.'

Select 'Browse calendars of interest.'

Here, you can add calendars like public holidays, sports events, or even moon phases. This adds more functionality and interest to your calendar.

5. Customize Event Reminder Settings for Personalized Alerts

Personalize how you receive reminders for each event. When you edit or create an event, look for the 'Reminders' section. Here, you can choose whether you want an email or a pop-up notification as a reminder and set the exact time for it (e.g., 30 minutes before the event).

6. Maintain an Organized Calendar by Regularly Updating Events

To keep your calendar useful and tidy, periodically review and update it. Delete past events that are no longer relevant and adjust the details of upcoming events as needed.
