Create a new calendar

You can create calendars to keep track of different types of events. For example, you could create a calendar called "Soccer" that tracks upcoming practices and games.

You can only create new calendars from a browser, and not from the Google Calendar app. Once the calendar is created, you'll see it on your browser and in the app.

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. On the left side of the page, next to "My calendars," click the Down arrow Down Arrow and then Create new calendar.
  3. Add a name for your calendar.
  4. If you want to share your calendar, check the box next to "Share this calendar with others."
  5. At the bottom of the page, click Create Calendar.

See the calendars you've created

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. On the left side of the page, under My calendars, you'll see a list of the calendars you've created.

To remove a calendar from your list, next to the calendar's name, click the Down arrow Down Arrow and then Hide this calendar from the list.
