The mini-calendar is a small calendar date picker in the top left hand side of Google Calendar. In addition to being able to quickly go to a date in the future, staff author Jess Stratton demonstrates how you can click and drag to select a large range of dates. The calendar will expand giving you a large overview of your events for that range.
