Manage Google Calendar Multiple Accounts
Using your Google Calendar multiple accounts is inherently complex.
While relying on different Google accounts for your activities can be handy —or inevitable, it makes it quite troublesome to keep organised. Such is the case with having multiple calendars independent from each other.
To avoid overlapping events —or plainly forgetting about them—, centralizing your calendars is key. The following are easy-to-follow solutions for keeping your Google Calendar in place.
How to Create a New Google Calendar?
Using different calendars is perfect for separating activities by type. As an example, your college Google account can have individual calendars for "exams", "studying" or "internships". To create a new calendar:
- Open your browser —we recommend using Stack for managing Google Calendar— and go to Google Calendar
- Search in the bottom left for Other calendars, click on the Add other calendars button, and once again on Create new calendar
- Name and customize your calendar
- Once you're done, save your calendar by clicking on Create calendar
This, of course, will create a calendar for your account exclusively. You can share with other accounts on the settings and sharing menu of the calendar (more on this a few subheadings below).
In case you rely on more than just one Google account, though, you will find it difficult to keep up with so many scattered calendars. If you have to manage multiple Google Calendar accounts, Stack, our browser built for productivity, is the best approach to do so.
Use Stack Browser to Manage Multiple Google Calendar Accounts
Using multiple Google Calendar accounts in Stack just comes naturally.
In this day and age, everyone has their digital lives divided into sets of accounts. Work, education, leisure, and other personal projects deserve each their own place. Why? Only in this way can one focus on them properly.
Unlike the outdated single-account paradigm, Stack embraces this division. Stack provides unique support for how you want to create the ideal browsing experience with all your accounts. With Stack, you can:
- Organize your pages in eye-catching side-by-side cards
- Pile cards into Stacks to have them all together just a click away
- Create Spaces to pile Stacks and give form to your projects
- Use multiple accounts simultaneously, without needing to log out of any account
To illustrate the last point, let's see how to switch between Google Calendars in Stack:
- Open Google Calendar on a card and log in to your account
- Open Google Calendar again in a new card, click on the three dots menu and toggle Private Session
- Now you can use your other account on this second card
Note: You can save this last card session and use it without having to log in again with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + L.
How to Sync Google Calendars
To sync your Google Calendar multiple accounts all you need to do is sync their different calendars. To do so:
- In Google Calendar, search at left for the calendar you want to share. You will find it either in My calendars or Other calendars.
- Click in the three dots menu next to it and on Configure and share. Note: You can't share your contacts calendar, Tasks nor your To-do list. Moreover, you can't share calendars shared with you that you don't have permission to share.
- Scroll down to Share with specific people. Here you can add your other Google accounts and set permissions. Click send once you're done.
- You will receive a confirmation email in each of your other Gmail accounts. Click on the email link to confirm adding the calendar.
Combining Other Google Calendars
What if you want to display the calendars from all your Google Calendar multiple accounts together? It's just four steps:
- Log in to Google Calendar.
- Search for your calendars and calendars shared with you at the left side of the screen.
- Click on the Add button next to Other calendars and select Subscribe to calendar.
- From this screen, you can send email requests to your other accounts for sharing their calendars.
If you want to manage multiple Google Calendar accounts, there's hardly a better match than Stack. Stack's native support for multi-accounting does wonders for other Google web services such as Gmail and Google Drive.
Likewise, Stack multi-accounting isn't limited to Google. Reddit, Asana, Facebook... Any web, productivity web tool, and social media can benefit from Stack's cutting-edge features.
