Trying to understand Google/Android calendars
Posted on 2013-01-03
I have a Samsung smartphone. When I go to the Calendar, I see the following:
my exchange active sync calendar
gmail.com address calendar
Contacts birthdays and... (gmail.com)
US Holidays (gmail.com)
I was hoping there would be just one calendar, but having 5 separate ones seems a bit confusing. What is the "My calendar" calendar, and why is it different than the others? Is there a way to consolidate them all? What is the intended design of having multiple calendars on a smart phone?
Sorry to ask questions that aren't very specific, but my end goal is to try and merge all of my old palm desktop calendar information into my new phone so I can stop carrying around my palm phone (which I only use for calendar information). I just don't understand where it will merge too, or which calendar it will go to. I want to use a software called Pimlical which will allow my to merge my old palm calendar into android/google calendars.
