I have had the same need for quite some time. And because I couldn't find anything suitable, I've built my own app. It's called Calify. http://www.califyapp.com The installer registers the app as the default program for handling *.ics files, so it works for both opening e-mail attachments and downloading event detail exports from webpages. It does not ...

This would seem to be an oversight on Google's part. Reminders don't appear to be searchable. When you use the advanced search options, you can limit your search to a particular calendar (including "Other" calendars you've connected) or "All Calendars", but there's no option for "Reminders". So it appears that there's currently no way to search for ...

I have noticed it may now take several days before changes are reflected. It looks like Google upped the time on their Calendar Help page from "every few hours" to "up to 8 hours" and now to "up to 12 hours." Note: It might take up to 12 hours for changes to show in your Google Calendar. Source: Add someone else's Google calendar: Add using a Link

The best option I've found is to use Microsoft Flow with the Copy new events in Office 365 to Google Calendar and send a notification template. Events doesn't show up immediately, but it takes around 5 minutes. Pretty good. It also handles event updates.

There isn't a nice and direct way to do that. However, you could do the following: Create a new temporary calendar from the + sign in the calendars list. Go to your event and copy/duplicate it to the temporary calendar. Export the calendar to an ics file. Delete the event from the temporary calendar. Repeat 2-4 when necessary.

Currently, Google Calendar limits recurring events to have a maximum of 730 occurrences in the series[1]. Unfortunately, they don't do a very good job of communicating this limitation in the UI.

I found the soloution: The calendar that contains the event needs to be published. As I did not want to make my calendar public I just created a new one.

Another partial solution that may work for some folks: Create the repeating event for the first day of every month, then add a reminder for one day in advance.

It turns out that the "Yes / No / Maybe" options are not initially shown for an event until you add a guest other than yourself. If you just add yourself as a guest, nothing happens. When you add the first guest other than yourself, a guest list appears with two guests (yourself as "Organizer", plus the guest you invited). The presence of the guest list ...
