See a Year View in Google Calendar

Google Calendar offers you quick access to day, week and month displays via buttons at the top of the screen. Sometimes, though, it’s handy to see a whole-year view to help you plan future events.

You can achieve this by enabling Year View from the Labs section. To get there, click the cog-wheel icon and choose Labs from the drop-down menu.

You’ll now see the Year View tool appear in the right-hand sidebar:

This feature lets you see the entire chosen year in Google Calendar. Enter the year of interest and click Go. A full-year view will be shown:

Although this doesn’t display event data – which is a pity – note that each date is a clickable link. Clicking on a date will open your last-selected calendar view choice (week, month etc) for a period that includes the chosen date.
