Adding a Link to a Google Calendar Description




While Google does not give us the ability to insert a hyperlink in a Google Calendar description by default, with a little HTML action we solve this deficiency.

Here is the magical code: 

<a href="URL"> display text</a>


Education application: Perfect for teachers that want to share assignments or resources on a public calendar to their students. Public school calendar for an administrator or counselor to share date specific resources.

See how to use it in the video below.

Thanks for this post!
But I can't figure out how to get the description to appear in the popup window when you click the calendar event - and from searching I see many people are having the same issue. How did you do it?
Thanks!

Succinct and accurate. Thank you.

An additional point though is to avoid using "click" or "here" in the display text. Just google for "don't use click here" to understand why.
