In Googler, you can click on the current date item at the top of the gadget and you get a calendar. This calendar has several features:

  • You can click a day in the future or in the past and the gadget will show you your events starting on that day rather than today.
  • In case of using quickadd function, you can choose the due date by clicking a day.
  • You can just browse the months which gives a nice overview of the days.

In Googler, GMail notification is not just a new-mail-count indicator, but if you wish, a small preview of your new emails is displayed, where you can see the sender and the subject of your unread emails.

The events of the selected calendars are displayed in an agenda view on the gadget. On the sidebar, only the due date/time, and the title of the events are shown. However, by clicking an event, detailed information is shown on the gadget flyout. On the flyout, you can delete or just hide the event, or you can open the event in your default browser on Google Calendar web user interface.

Note, that there is an "Edit" button on the flyout, which lets you edit the event locally, without the need to open Google Calendar UI in a browser.

In Googler, you can edit several details of events. You can edit the title of the event, its due information, where and description fields. Moreover, you can change recurence information also by double-clicking the editbox of Repeat field, though, currently you need to edit raw iCal data, therefore, you must know what you are doing.

Of course, you can add new events on the gadget with using the standard Google Clendar quick add syntax. The extra feature you have in Googler is that you don't have to write down due date in the quick add command, instead this, you can click a date on the calendar and due date is filled in automatically.

In Google Calendar Agenda, you have the possibilty to choose from some predefined themes, which are in fact color schemes. However, in Googler, you can add user-defined themes to the gadget. You can find some themes below Theme menu.
