Troubleshoot issues

I don't see all my results

When you search on your computer, you may see a message at the top of the page that says "200 results for x."

On the page, there might not actually be 200 results. This is a problem that the Google Calendar team is working on.

I don't see past events

If you don't see results from the past when you click enter after typing your search term, try using the suggested results that show up before you click enter. Those suggested results often include events from the past.

See events from a certain time period

If you don't see past events when you search, try using advanced search on your computer to only see results for a certain time period.

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. In the search box, click the down arrow
  3. Add in information you want to filter by.
  4. At the bottom of the box, click Search.
