Re: gmail folder pain question

Yes, that’s the only way I can access this calendar. It doesn’t show my calendars so that I can expand it. I can pick days and it shows the game that’s on that day, but I know that’s not what  I need. I need the list of the calendars, wish these instructions had been made with screen reader users in mind.

Madison,

Oh Ok, Now I understand.  Did you sign in to your Google on line? If so, you still don’t see the Calendar?

Yes, latest version of Office 365, but it’s in Google/on the gmail website that I can’t find the my calendar spot.

Madison,

Ok, so the main problem here is finding the my calendar spot, right? You are running Outlook, what version?

Madison,

Ok, did you import the snapshot of your Google calendar into Outlook?

Here's the text of the article:

See your Google Calendar in Outlook

Outlook for Microsoft 365 Outlook 2019 Outlook 2016 More...

By importing a snapshot of your Google calendar into Outlook, you can see it alongside other calendars in the Outlook Calendar View. To keep the imported calendar up-to-date, subscribe to the Google Calendar in Outlook. If you don’t, the only way to update it will be to import another, more current snapshot.

Tip: If you don't plan to use Google Calendar anymore but want to keep your events, you can import your Google Calendar to Outlook so all of your appointments are integrated into one Outlook calendar view.

Subscribe to your Google Calendar

An Internet Calendar (iCal) Subscription keeps your Outlook copy of your Google Calendar up-to-date.

  1. Log in to your Google Calendar account.
  2. In the left column, click My calendars to expand it, hover over the calendar that you want to add to Outlook as an Internet Calendar Subscription. Select the three dots to the right of the calendar name, then select Settings.

  1. Scroll down to the Integrate Calendar section and right click on Secret address in iCal format and select Copy. 
  2. In Outlook, click File > Account Settings > Account Settings.
  3. On the Internet Calendars tab, click New.

  1. Paste the address you copied in step 4, by pressing CTRL+V, and click Add.

  1. In the Folder Name box, type the name of the calendar as you want it to appear in Outlook, and then click OK.

When you start Outlook, it checks Google Calendar for updates and downloads any changes. If you keep Outlook open, it also periodically checks for and downloads updates. (Google Calendar tells Outlook how often to check for updates.)

Note: Changes you make in Outlook aren’t sent to your Google Calendar. To update your Google calendar, open Google Calendar from a browser.

Import a calendar from Google Calendar

  1. Log in to your Google Calendar account.
  2. In the left column, click My calendars to expand it, click the arrow button next to the calendar that you want to import into Outlook, and then click Calendar Settings.

  1. Under Private Address, click ICAL.

  1. In the Calendar Address dialog box, click the web address of the calendar.

  1. When prompted, click Open to import the calendar into Outlook.

The calendar opens in side-by-side view in the Outlook Calendar. It’s also added to the Navigation Pane in Calendar view, under Other Calendars.

Note: The imported calendar is a static snapshot. To update it, you need to subscribe to it or repeat this procedure to import a copy of the most current version of your calendar in Google Calendar.

I'm not sure if I can help.  Others probably can.

 

Are you saying you press enter on the calendars tab and then can't find what you

are looking for?  I don't have a calendars tab.  I don't know why but from what

you say, evidently you do.

I don't know if it would help.  there is a problem with my GMail and, for some

reason, I can only use simple HTML.  Are you using simple HTML or the other

setting?  I don't remember its name.

I'm trying to find my calendars under the calendars tab, I'm trying to subscribe

my google calendar to Outlook. I have instructions, but I just can't get to the

my calendars tab/button. I can send the link for the instructions if that would

help.

What are you trying to do?  If we know that, we can address the actual problem,

not just how you want to try to solve it, which may or may not be necessary or a

good solution.

Subject: [TechTalk] gmail folder pain question

 

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how to maximize my folder pain on the gmail website and have

it stay that way? I'm trying to do something but it's not showing up and someone

on another list (which clearly isn't for screen reader users) suggested that I

maximize my folder pain. I'm using latest Jaws and Edge. Thanks Madison
