I do not work for Google, nor was I compensated for the production of this video series. I am simply a Google Calendar user (both personally and professionally) that would like to share my knowledge and insight with others to help provide a more seamless transition to Google Calendar.

    Have enjoyed many of your video's, especially concerning the Google Calendar.
    I do have an issue. That is, once I create and save an "event" for a particular time, it does not show up on the calendar. I only have the one calendar. An "all day" event shows up OK, but an event scheduled for a particular time does not. That happens only on this computer. When I look at my calendar on a different computer, the events show up. I cannot find any option anywhere that would cause this to happen. This started presenting itself a few weeks ago and I have not been able to find a solution.
    I have removed all events and even tried to 'remove' the calendar to start over but can't seem to fix the problem.
    Any suggestions?
