- My name is Jess Stratton, and welcome to Google Calendar Essential Training. Google Calendar is a free time management system. In this course, I'll show you how to fully navigate Google Calendar, set your calendar preferences, and even change the way the calendar looks. I'll show you how to create events, invite people to your events, and even how to book a conference room to your event, if you're a Google Apps for Business or Education user. I'll show you how to add reminders to your calendar, and even how you can configure Google to send you a text message, as a reminder.

You'll learn how to create additional calendars, and how to share out those calendars so that others can view events on them. Continuing, I'll show you how to search your calendar, and all the options you have to print out your calendar. Finally, I'll show you how you can access Google, by a Smartphone or tablet, and even how can install it, on the Native Mac Calendar Client. I'm gonna show you all this and more, so let's get started right now.
