Afterward you will be asked how far into the past you would like to download your events. You can choose between “Last month”, “Last year” and “Full calendar”.

Configuring Google Calendar


If everything worked so far, you can create additional calendars (just click “Add” on the left under “My calendars”) on the Google Calendar website, assign different colors and category names (e.g. a red "work" calendar and a green "home" calendar). The next time you sync CalenGoo, it will download these color settings and calendars. When you create new events with CalenGoo or Google Calendar, you can choose one of these calendars and the event will be displayed with the color of the chosen calendar.
