Reminder: New Google Calendar on the Web

11/30/2017

Last month we announced a new Google Calendar interface on the web. It applies a modern color palette and sleek design using a responsive layout that auto-adjusts to your screen size. Try it out today by clicking Use new Calendar at the top of your calendar web view. If for some reason you want to switch back to Classic Calendar, you can find it in the new Calendar settings.

The current Classic Calendar will remain available until February 28, 2018. Google will then switch all Classic Calendars to the new Calendar.
Learn more at the Google support site.

Expanded page hierarchy in the new Google Sites

11/1/2017

One feature we were missing in the new Sites was deep page hierarchy. Google heard our feedback and now made it possible to nest five levels of pages in the new Google Sites, up from the two levels previously allowed. To nest a page within a page, drag and drop it into your desired location from the Pages menu on the right side of your screen.
