My life revolves around Google. I have totally been assimilated and do SO much through Google: 3 email addresses, 2 calendars, Google Docs, Picasa, etc. Honestly, if Google ever crashed, I’d be lost for a while.
One thing with the calendar feature is that I do a bunch of different things and initially separated my calendars based on ‘personal’ and ‘professional’ stuff, shared with each other and assigned different colors. NOW though,
Google Calendar still doesn’t offer support for labels, but you can now pick a color for each event. By default, each event inherits the calendar’s color, but you can change it by clicking the event and using the small drop-down displayed next to the event’s title.
This is fantastic news, and I am giving it a shot on my personal calendar. I created a secondary calendar on that account for Girl Scout stuff so that I could assign another color to it (can you tell I’m a visual learner?). I’m hoping that with this new feature, I will be able to condense all of my calendars back into one main account so I don’t have to jump back and forth between accounts on my computer and/or phone (which has been the biggest pain in the ass).
This absolutely has my OCD in a happy place!
