Everyday to-do list makes us more productive and helps us to utilize our valuable time on mandatory things, so Google calendar Goals makes this possible in a very easy way. In April 2016, Google introduced “Goals” in its Calendar to help find time for personal “Goals”. But now Google plans to remove this feature from its calendar.
You can set this feature like “Goal” shows in the mobile FAB (Floating Action Button) with “Event”, “Task”, “Reminder”, and “Out of office” (on Workspace accounts). Tapping prompts, you to choose a goal:
- Get up early in the morning and go for a walk.
- Learn something or enroll yourself in some new course.
- Take out some time for the family from your busy schedule.
- Read some books and meditate.
After specifying the Activity (or selecting “Custom”), the Calendar asks, “How often” with several increments and “For how long.” Google then has you pick the “Best time”: Morning, Afternoon, Evening, or Any time.
After getting the Goal’s parameters, Google arranges time and place in the calendar as per your schedule, while noting it will “learn your preferences.” it notifies you from time to time after knowing about your schedule like sending “Smart notifications” before and after a session to “help you prepare and track progress.”
Version 2022.30.2 of Google Calendar for Android is rolling out today and readies a deprecation prompt:
<string name=”habits_deprecation_banner_title”>Goals is leaving Calendar soon</string>
The company clarifies that “You’ll still see goals you’ve created on your calendar, but they won’t repeat anymore.” It recommends creating recurring events “to keep track of your goals.”
<string name=”habits_deprecation_banner_learn_more”>Learn more about Goals alternatives</string>
<string name=”habits_deprecation_banner_button_text”>Create an event instead</string>
This removal of the Calendar feature is not new it same as Reminders because they work on the workspace product. Discuss Reminders, the app’s regular change for that eventual phase out, and transition to Google Tasks.
