Link to relevant spreadsheets, documents or presentations in your Calendar invite and open them directly from the new “Event Detail” view.

Manage multiple calendars side by side in “Day” view
  1. You can view and manage calendars in separate columns. This makes it easier for employees who manage multiple calendars, like administrative assistants, to schedule meetings on behalf of their teams.
  2. Click “Day” view and select the calendars you want to compare.
Other changes
  1. Now you can see contact information of meeting participants when you hover over their names in a Calendar invite.

  3. Additionally, "Day,” "Week,” and "Month" views are more accessible, featuring better compatibility with screen readers.
