    In your tutorial showing how to embed links in Google Calendars, you use the href tag to create a link in the “Description” field, but I cannot figure out how to make it so the user sees the content of the Description field when clicking on the calendar event. On Windows 7 using Google Chrome, it is nowhere to be found. Are you a practitioner of Voodoo? Tell me your secrets!

    Ah! I see now! When the calendar is shared as public calendar, and the user accesses it using the URL supplied when you follow the directions given in this link:

    https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/41208

    Then the user sees the description and the html code works as advertised.

    Apparently the owner of the calendar does not get to see this functionality.

    You’re exactly right!

    Probably should have mentioned that in the tutorial video, eh? Thanks for clarifying this for others who may have the same issue.

    Are you thinking about using Google Calendar to share resources with your students?
