    The calendar application is great! When I learned about it, it made it much easier to view all of my upcoming assignments. As part of my assignment for the calendar tutorial I had to add events.

     

    I found it a bit time consuming to enter the same event on multiple days. I think it would be more efficient if there was a "recurring" option when entering events. Also if the calendar was able to link to Google's calendar that would be ideal too!

     

    Given that many of today's smartphones are equipped with Google it would be easy to view our canvas calendar events on our google events all at once.

    Just some ideas Thanks!
