Be more productive with Google Calendar thanks to extra functionality provided by GCalPlus.


To enable GCalPlus options after installation go to Google Calendar online and check the boxes in the pop-out that opens when you click the GCal Plus Icon in the Chrome navigation bar, next to your User Icon, top right. If you don't see the Icon click the "Extensions" icon (jigsaw piece) and click the pin for GCalPlus. You may need to reload the page for some settings to take effect, and you need to "Authorise" for some options for which GCalPlus needs access to your calendar and some settings.

MAJOR UPDATE (Manifest v3)

Version 2.x is a major update with significant changes under the hood that will allow GCalPlus to remain on the Chrome WebStore when all Manifest v2 Extensions are removed by Google.

There will probably be bugs, but overall performance should be much improved. If you have problems with "Authorize" you might need to "Disconnect" (if possible) then revoke permissions for GCalPlus at https://myaccount.google.com/connections, then "Authorize" again.

If you have problems please get in touch directly using one of these methods:

This is a wonderful tool -thank you! If you're accepting feature requests - as a live event venue, it would be so great to have a more specific time filter - so that you could see events between e.g. 6pm - 2am (evening shows), or 9am-6pm(for events during business hours).

Any chance you can add a color labels feature? Calendars under school or professional accounts have the ability to assign labels for certain colors, but it doesn't apply to personal accounts.

Great extension, BUT!!! it doesn't seem to duplicate google meet conferences assigned to the events, which makes it rather useless when all your events have meetings. Or am I missing sth?
