What is it?
The Google Calendar Month View Integrations widget provides a portal into an existing Google calendar, displaying events in a wall calendar-like grid. Through it, you can view, update, and create events.

Frequently asked questions
Can I sync my calendar to an Igloo calendar?
Not directly. You can, however, invite an Igloo calendar to an event in your google calendar. See Adding content via email for more detail.
Can I search my Google Calendar through the normal Igloo search feature?
Your Google Calendar cannot be searched by Igloo. Igloo does not have direct access to that information due to security restrictions.
