Upcoming Events

    In order to colour code the events in my calendar I have had to resort to creating 5 different Google calendars (each in a different colour) and then layer them to create the look I want.

    This however, has created a problem with the feed into my “Upcoming Events” widget where it appears as though I can only add one of my 5 calendars via the ICAL link.

    Is there any way that I can have events from more than one Google calendar feed into the Upcoming Events widget?

    The blog I need help with is howardpublicschool.com.



    There’s no need to create multiple calendars to create different colors. You can double click on an event to change its color: https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/37227?hl=en

    This way you can keep it to one calendar and show this in your widget.


    Yes, but by doing that you change the colour for ALL of the events on the calendar. It does not change colours for events individually, hence the need to layer the calendars.

    I want the music events to be blue, sports to be green, PA days red etc.
    I tried many things and the only thing that has worked is layering them, which is screwing up my Upcoming Events widget



    I see. The Upcoming Events doesn’t support this feature.

    We’ve registered your suggestion and will keep it in mind for future features and updates!
