Set up working hours in Google calendar

A lot of us have very busy schedules each and every day.  Somehow, we manage to get through all the meetings and events throughout the day and make our way home to family, friends, and pets.  To ensure that we are able to separate our work life from our personal life, Google Calendar gives us the option to set up our working hours.  These hours are the hours that we are typically in the office and available for meetings and/or events.  Let’s take a look at how to set up our working hours below.

Once you have your Google Calendar open, locate and click on the gear in the upper right hand corner and then click on ‘Settings.’  Scroll down until you see the section for “Working Hours.”


This feature is very helpful if you are a busy person and need to have some ‘me’ time. Now, this doesn’t mean that you can’t attend events that are scheduled outside of your working hours … you’re just professionally informing the parties that you are typically not available outside of the set hours.
