On February 28, your BC Google Calendar will update with a new design and features.


  • Modern color palette, sleek design, auto-adjusts to screen size.

New Features

  • The ability to add formatting and links in the event description.
  • See contact information of a specific person when you hover over their name in a calendar invite.
  • View and restore deleted items in one place, even if they apply to different calendars.
  • Quickly add all of the details of an event when you click on a space in the calendar instead of having to click on the “edit this event” button.
  • A different “create event” button (look in the lower right for the red circle and + sign).
  • The ability to view full contact information of meeting participants by hovering your cursor over their names.
    Have people decline or accept an invitation to a calendar event, which will be color coded for either option.
  • In Day view, view two or more calendars from different people or places at the same time side by side.
    • For example, you could select Tuesday, November 28th, and view Jimmy’s, Cami’s, and Amanda’s work schedules for the day in individual, side by side columns.
  • Video conferencing with the new Google Hangouts Meet.*

*NOTE: Google Hangouts Meet conferencing requires Google Chrome and will not be available until 2/28.​
