HOWTO see Google Calendar events in yearly view

245px-google_calendar

It turns out I already have booked a few events for 2019 so I wanted to have a yearly view of everything I have. I was disappointed to see that current Google Calendar yearly events view is useless as It’s just empty. There are lots of comments about this issue in this Google productforums entry.

Ron Irrelavent is absolutely right

So I did some search to look for solutions and I found these 2:

  • Google Calendar Plus extension
    • I haven’t even tried as I’m tired of Chrome extensions but seems to work.
  • Visual-Planner project
    • A bit ugly but it works and it’s open-source so this is what I’m using. You can use it without installing it here (you just need to OAUTH to your gmail account). Only drawback is that it does not display names for multi-day events, as a workaround you can create a single event for the first day e.g “Flight to London”

This is something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Let me know if you have better alternatives.

I also hope Google implements this..  Hello Google PMs? 🙂
