    As of November 18, 2015, XML feeds will no longer be available in Google Calendar. iCAL and HTML can be used to make your calendar publicly shared. If you previously shared your CONNECT Calendar via XML you will need to update the link using iCAL or HTML.

  • Find "Missing" emails more easily in Gmail

    posted Monday, November 9, 2015

    Sometimes emails are mistakenly marked as spam or put into Trash, and they can be difficult to discover via search. To help address this issue, Gmail will now search in both the Trash and Spam folders (only Trash was indexed previously). If a match is found, a footer at the bottom of search results will indicate the match and direct the user to view the messages.

    In addition, if a search query is too general to return useful search results, a different footer will now be shown guiding the user to try refining their query using Gmail advanced search.

    This update will take effect in early December.

  • Google Calendar now moves events to Trash

    posted Thursday, November 5, 2015

    Ever deleted a calendar event by mistake and wanted to get it back, just like you can with email? Now you can. Google has added Trash functionality to its Calendar on the web, providing an easy way for users to view, permanently delete, or restore individual and recurring deleted calendar events.

    Trash is accessible from the calendar's dropdown menu in the "My calendars" section as well as from Calendar Settings. This functionality is available for both primary calendars and secondary calendars for which people have edit rights.
