What are folders?

Folders are a way to group sub-calendars and to create an organizational hierarchy for them. Folder organization makes it easier to find the sub-calendars you are looking for, or to work with only a group of sub-calendars.

Use folders to organize calendars
Sub-calendars are indented inside folders.

The folders have a gray color bar to set them apart from the color-coded sub-calendars.

To create sub-calendars inside of a folder, simply use a right arrow symbol in this format: Name of Folder > Name of Sub-Calendar. For every sub-calendar you want in the folder, use the same format and the same folder name.

You can create nested folders, as well, using the same concept: Folder 1 > Folder 2 > Sub-Calendar.

You can nest folders and sub-calendars in your organization.

You can work with folders to easily view a group of sub-calendars, or toggle all the contents of a folder on or off. Click the arrow to open or close the folder. Click the eye icon on a folder to show only the group of calendars within it.

folders - show or hide calendars
You can open or close folders.

If you want to turn a folder into an active calendar, go to Settings > Calendars. Create a new calendar with the same name as the folder. The organization will not be affected; the sub-calendars will remain grouped inside the folder as they were before, but the folder will now be an active calendar as well. To revert it back to a folder, deactivate or delete the calendar you created.
