Google made changes to event page in Google Calendar that make scheduling events easier. "We've made the style more consistent with other Google apps, put information that's most commonly used at the top of screen, simplified layout, and added some functionality," informs Google.

  • Repeating event editor shows only a summary of recurring event on the main event page; if you want to edit it, you can use a window that opens when you select "Repeats" checkbox.
  • A new tab on the event page makes it easier to find a time to schedule an event. This should make scheduling a tad easier, especially for events with large numbers of guests. For Google Apps users, new schedule preview can also show data from other calendar services using Google Calendar Connectors API.
  • Changes under the hood. we've added a new model for how we represent calendar events in browser and new mechanism for how we make sure those events get properly saved. We've paid special attention to performance, consistency, and extensibility.
