  1. I’m confused why we aren’t using Google Calendar anymore…nothing is wrong with it…

    1. There is nothing wrong with it. It just that people are always looking for alternatives, no matter how good a product is.

    2. I tried using Google Calendar for the two websites I run. However it isn’t possible to add URL links into the “event” description. I therefore have to create a spreadsheet and use that instead.

      1. You can add URL links to the event description, just use simple HTML anchor.
