TitanApps/Google Calendar (Web) - Calendar name

This document details how to change the name for a calendar and which appears when a calendar is shared.

Changing the name on a TitanApps / Google Calendar

When an account has a user name change, the calendar may not show the correct updated name. It may also be preferred to change the name which a calendar appears in the list or when shared with others.

How to update a calendar name

Follow these instructions to change the name of the calendar:

  1. Open the calendar app by visiting https://www.google.com/calendar/
  2. On the left under My Calendars, hover over the calendar which requires modification click the down-arrow which appears.
  3. Choose Calendar settings from the pop-up.
  4. Change the Calendar Name to the name of choice.
    • Important: If the name looks correct, but when sharing the calendar with another user the incorrect name is shown (such as an old username), the name must be changed in some way, saved, and then changed to the preferred name and saved again. Simply re-typing the name won't force the update.
  5. Click Save to make the change complete.
