The desktop version of Google Calendars is once again equipped with an offline mode, after temporarily retiring it a few years earlier / Digital Information World

The desktop version of Google Calendars will again be accessible offline for Google’s user base, after this same functionality was removed in 2018.

If this author is to be honest, removing that feature was probably not the best move Google has made. In 2018, Calendar’s desktop UI received a pretty substantial series of visual and functional revamps, bringing the PC version much closer to iterating the original mobile device. However, this came at the cost of calendars being freely accessible offline, a feature anyone could rely on. In particular, people with impending deadlines and / or a poor network connection could really lean on the offline site for support, until Google decided to rip off that metaphorical walking stick. And yet another entry can be added to the company’s unfortunately prolific product graveyard. If it weren’t for a recent announcement.

It appears that Google has made a decision for now and in lieu of that recently reintroduced the offline desktop version of Calendars for public access. In a post published on their Workspace Updates Blog the company announced the return of offline desktop calendars, with a few caveats however. The first limitation at hand is its availability, since offline mode is only implemented for Google businesses (like the Workspace itself). That said, however, there is no mention of such a restriction in the support site post about it, and so we’ll have to wait and see how the feature is rolled out over the next 15 days (starting January 25 for Google’s Quick Release Domains. and February 8 for those with scheduled release). Offline calendars will only show events 4 weeks before the current time or any time in the future, be it day, month or year.

The offline feature will be enabled by default for admins, while the rest of Google’s user base will have to manually enable the feature. To activate the feature, all you have to do is go to the calendars.google.com domain, click on Settings, then on General and simply check the offline box. Upon reloading online, calendars will sync with your account details and be ready for offline use. And this is all. When you go offline, a text box will appear telling users that some features will not work. For administrators who want to disable the feature, all they need to do is follow the general settings, then uncheck the offline box. Simple enough, yes?
