Octavee says he saw a Google Gears dialog in Google Calendar. Some unrelated issue or a sign of things to come?
<<just got a message if I want to allow or deny google gears in google calendar. Seems a new thing, but under what's new is no mention of it. ...
This is the screenshot. But seems to not work yet. I tries to diasble my internet and enter an event. but it was not saved.>>
Calendar seems like a good fit for Gears, would love to see this happen.
Perhaps we'll get some releases / announcements during tomorrow's analyst day?
Execute this in your address bar:
You should get a dialog box containing the following:
<< Use Google Calendar Offline
To view and edit the next 3 months of your Google Calendar when you're not connected to the Internet, click " OK ". [Online] will appear in the top right of your screen whenever your data is ready to be viewed offline.
This feature uses the Google Gears browser plug-in (which is already installed on your computer). >>
Doesn't look like it's quite ready yet...
(hey, welcome back Tony!)
And here's another link to try:
That displays the Offline settings although it doesn't seem to save the changes if you check the box and the "learn more" link leads to here, which is currently blank:
(Thanks... it's taken me a while to catch up!)
I wish they would use the same gears icons as google reader does. it's silly to confuse users.
I also saw one of those gGears dialog boxes in gCal...
I even cleared my google.com Gears allowances and still didn't get a dialog. I had to re-add the site from Reader. Maybe it's not prompting on my account. Then again, Tony's functions worked...
Yay! My gcal works offline.
finally this is what google calandar needed.
It shows the message box, but Google Calendar doesn't think that I have installed Gears, even when I have already installed it. I guess I'll have to wait....
