I have a Google account for work, and another personal account. I have on more than one occasion clicked the bookmark I made in my work folder and been confused by not seeing (e.g.) an important meeting on my calendar.

Only when I realized that Google treats the two calendars as identical resources (they have the same URL) did I understand what was going on.

Is there any way to correct this? Is there any way to bookmark my work calendar(s) separately from my personal calendar(s)? (Same with my e-mail?)

This seems to be an undocumented feature, but you can use the authuser URL parameter.

So, you can create bookmarks that will take you directly to the calendar for a specific account, like so:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/[email protected]

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/[email protected]

Gmail works similarly:

https://mail.google.com/mail/[email protected]

https://mail.google.com/mail/[email protected]

As does Google's Inbox by Gmail:

https://inbox.googl‌​e.com/[email protected]

https://inbox.googl‌​e.com/[email protected]

You may need to be logged in to both accounts using Google's multi-account feature, but my test with Google Chrome worked just great.

  • This also works with Drive. BTW you don't need the directory parts of the URLs, calendar/ and mail/. Thanks!

  • You can also use authuser=0 for the first account signed in, authuser=1 for the second, etc. More info

    @wjandrea authuser=0 or =1 is dependent upon the order in which you sign-in, which will change over time. So if you want a consistent bookmark (like "Personal Gmail") you'll want to use the email address instead of the number.

  • Confirmed this still works in 2021 for Calendar and Gmail, using calendar.google.com/?authuser=<me>@gmail.com and mail.google.com/?authuser=<me>@gmail.com

This can be done with this

https://accounts.google.com/AccountChooser?continue=https://calendar.google.com&[email protected]

Works even when you are not loggen in.
