Service Name: Google Calendar
Service Type: Calendar
What I Need: Next Event(s)
Could be generalized as an iCal or CalDAV widget
+1 for this, great idea
It would be good to rather than just show the next event, have a configurable dropdown to choose how many events you want to show (like for example the twitter widget)
Good idea. Maybe have a multi-space version which has your next event in larger letters, with a list on the side.
See attached for mockup.
Hi Guys - I'm hoping we'll have Google Calendar integration pretty soon. In the meantime here's a mockup of how the initial version will look.
@Paul That looks awesome, will the Calendar need to be public or can it be done though a private iCal link?
Hi Tom - we're still working out the details for this widget. I'll let you know once we're close to releasing it.
Just wanted to let you know that we have just announced Google Calendar widget and you can add it to your dashboard right now under the "Misc" category. You can find more details about the other items we've added on the blog.
As ever, I'd love to hear your thoughts :)
This would be awesome if it worked with Google Apps oAuth instead of Regular Google Accounts :)
Hi Tom - we're actively looking into this right now. I hope to have an update soon.
Being able to subscribe to a number of public calendars (like public holidays for multiple countries) without having to log in to anything would be great too.
Thanks Robert, that's a useful suggestion! Would you want to display all calendars on a single widget or have a widget per calendar?
I would like to be able to display n calendars (either logged-in or public subscriptions) per widget--it should be totally the user's choice.
All day events show as 12:00am, would it possible to remove the time for these events?
Hi Mark, thanks for the suggestion. It's definitely something we'll look into for the future. Thanks for the feedback.
Would be great to be able to limit to just todays events. We have over 3 months of meetings booked in advance which means the widget keeps cycling through the future events and spends little time on today!
Would like to have the option of adding descriptions for events (choose number of fixed lines per description too).
Thanks for the feedback
