Now it has become easier for all Google Accounts as Google now offers the facility to access its calendar offline. If you want to enable this facility all you have to do is just click on “Offline (beta)” in Google Calendar’s header and install Gears if you are not having already have it, allow Google Gears to store information on your computer and then wait until the data is downloaded.
You can select the calendars available offline in “Offline Settings Page” and the main calendar is only enabled in the Offline Setting Page. Moreover, in this you will be able to view events scheduled on these calendars that next time you access the Calendar Offline. The main thing you have to note about this calendars containing web-contents events will not display correctly while offline.
But unfortunately Google Offline calendar has many limitations, you have to go online or offline manually, you can’t add events or edit the existing events or change the event settings.
The other major limitation of this calendar is Google will not download all the events and this calendar only contains the events from Feb 4, 2009 to Jun 4, 2009.
