  • You will have to initially set up the files using a desktop or laptop computer. (After they are set up, you can access them with any device.)
  • We do NOT recommend installing all the Wise Skies entries in the same calendar! Wise Skies Calendar contains a LOT of information! The beauty of using Google Calendar is that you can show what you want and hide the rest.
  • Not seeing your Wise Skies calendars on your phone, tablet, or other device? You must enable that functionality from within your Google account. This link should get you there, as long as you are logged into your acccount.
This handy sidebar allows you to quickly show or hide any of your calendars.

Pro tips – using Wise Skies Calendar with Google Calendar

  • To overcome “information overload,” click the colored squares on the left side of your calendar window to SHOW or HIDE calendars as needed. (If you don’t see them, click the triangle to the left of “My calendars.”)
  • When you import a new calendar, Google makes it whatever color it wants. Point your mouse at a calendar’s name in this menu and click the down arrow to adjust display COLORS to your liking.
  • Mouse over the down arrow and select “Reminders and Notifications” to set REMINDERS
  • On the same Reminders tab, click the box next to “Daily Agenda” to include that calendar’s events in the agenda that Google e-mails you every day.
  • Switch between monthly, weekly, and daily views
