Murphy Canyon Little League: MCLL Calendar

Instructions for Creating Your Personal Google Calendar


Google Calendar

It has never been easier to keep track of all your important appointments and events. The Google Calendar can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection. You can set it up to send notifications of appointments and events to your email and cell phone.  With just a few clicks, you can add events from other calendars to your personal calendar. Many schools and organizations are now listing their own Google Calendars on their websites. Calendars can be customized to fit your needs.  Some of the highlights are:

  • Calendar view (daily, weekly, monthly)
  • Color code events from other calendars. If you have multiple calendars linking to yours, you can color code the events so you know which calendar they are originally from.
  • You can set up to have notifications of events sent to your email and cell phone.
  • You can subscribe to other (organizations, schools, and people) calendars and the information posted on that calendar automatically updates your calendar.
  • If you are on a website and they have a Google Calendar, you can click on an event that interests you and it will automatically give you the option to “Copy to my calendar”. Click on the link and it automatically posts to your calendar.
  • If you chose, your calendar can be shared with others or embedded on your personal website.
