Google Calendar Tags

Description from extension meta

A little visual addon that adds special markup to tags and question marks in event names.

Image from store Google Calendar Tags
Description from store This add-on causes two markup changes in of Google Calendar. Event names containing a colon (:) will have the part before the colon being displayed as a colored tag that helps discerning different kinds of events without the need for creating dozens of calendars. For example: "Tag: Event name" becomes "[Tag] Event name". Event names ending with a question mark will be displayed in italic and transparent, as a kind of optional or yet to be confirmed event.

  • (2021-09-23) Brynne Lycette: Works really well for me, I use it to label meeting priority so that other people can easily get a sense of rescheduling ease. Since some of the recent ones are saying it doesnt work, thought this would be helpful.

  • (2021-05-05) Brian Chandra: Is there a way to use multiple tags? with the middle not highlighted? Person1: space Person 2:
  • (2021-04-14) Felipe Bolzan Hartmann: Simples e útil, além de ser grátis.
  • (2021-04-06) Im a Mystery: It does not work anymore. Is it possible to update? Please.
  • (2021-03-04) Syd: Cool! I also love the ? function that makes the events italic and transparent. It would be cool if there's an option for adding multiple tags (or maybe I've missed that in the instructions). Love it though, very clean, simple, easy to use.
  • (2021-02-18) Felipe Guerra: Not working anymore.
  • (2021-02-16) 林煒清: helpful but crude
  • (2021-01-25) Berina Omerdić: doesnt really work just takes you to a random site https://soimon.com/
  • (2020-11-29) Mechelle Corwin: Is there a way to make tags a different color depending on the tag? For example, I want tentative meegtings to be tagged "TENT:" with a red tag, and confirmed meetings tagged "CONF:" with a green tag. Can that be done?
  • (2020-11-06) Adrian Bk: Great, thanks for the work!
  • (2020-10-22) Chia Chin Tsai: [Wishlist] Not only ":" but also ":" should be used for tagging
  • (2020-10-01) Yannick Burky: LOVE IT :)
  • (2020-09-29) Irene: Just installed but doesn't work. Can you fix it? It opens soimon.com page. I don't know what it is. Obviously, looking forward to add more stars. Many thanks.
  • (2020-08-27) Diana Mollo: I love this extension, it was exactly what I was looking for and I could use it in a couple of minutes. I want to suggest a feature request tho, I noticed that the tag was only available if you used the tag as the first words of the event name and I think it would also be helpful to use the tag after the event name or even the use of multiple tags on the same event name.
  • (2020-01-15) Barry McAlister: Just installed this, what a great addition to Calendar. It even works on Reminders.
  • (2020-01-13) Greg Gambone: This addon performs exactly as described. On the web version of calendar, tags appear with font color matching the event color but highlighted in white, so basically the inverse of the rest of the text. On the Android GCal app and the embedded calendar on a different website, obviously there's no special formatting, just the tag and colon as it was typed.
  • (2019-10-09) Sanket Joshi: Such an obvious feature that calendar lacked... super easy to use!
  • (2019-09-26) Holly Williamson: I can't get this extension working on my calendar - any help would be greatly appreciated! I've downloaded the extension, but when I insert : it doesn't do anything...
  • (2019-08-17) Larry Shreve: For me, searching for "Tag:" still returns all instances of "Tag" AND "Tag:". Naming a tag "Tag::" (double colon) doesn't change anything for me, either. In a perfect world, calendar tags would show up in a list with checkboxes, just like calendars do. The UI would be very similar to tags in Gmail. And it would be super nice if the mobile version could display the tags as well. It's a cool extension, but not quite what I'm looking for.
  • (2019-06-19) Lois Whitehead: So simple that I was using it within 30 seconds. Love it!
  • (2019-06-19) Rafael Benavent: Nice extension. I really like it. Only minor thing is that when you click on an event the colon is replaced with a space which doesn't look pretty. Example: Task: Do this Becomes: Task Do this
  • (2019-06-07) Didier ALLAIN: Impossible de le faire fonctionner .Totalement nul
  • (2018-11-15) Pdx Mtg: Great add-on! I embed multiple calendars on a page, and I would like my users to be able to press a button and see only those events with that tag. How would I be able to do this?
  • (2018-09-21) Daniela Castañeda: This is a fantastic tool to minimize calendars and simplify my schedule. Is there a way to search for events by a specific tag in case that same name is written in non-relevant event descriptions? Thanks
  • (2018-09-19) Achuthan Karnnan: It's a Simple but Powerful Little tweak. I really like it. Good Job :)
  • (2018-03-03) Tim Curran: Loved it... until the new Google Calendar broke it. :-(
