Google added a widget to help you find time for personal goals in April 2016 when it redesigned Calendar for Android and iOS. Goals will be eliminated by Google Calendar as part of yet another impending removal.
Update 8/24: As we stated at the beginning of this month, Google Calendar Goals will no longer be used. Create an event instead, consumers are instructed by a new notice in the Android and iOS apps, and it is explained in an support article that current goals will still be on your calendar after November 2022 but won’t repeat. After then, you won’t be able to make new objectives, and the option will probably be removed from the FAB.
Google gives the following alternatives:
Set up new repeating events or make a previous occurrence repeat. Create and manage repeating tasks in Google Calendar and Google Tasks. Schedule a repeating focus time event will automatically reject more invitations in order to respect your time. Important: You must have a work or school account in order to arrange a concentration time event.
Goal is listed alongside Event, Task, Reminder, and Out of office in the mobile FAB (Floating Action Button) list from the original 8/3. (on Workspace accounts). You are prompted to select a goal by tapping:
Exercise: Move your body by running or practicing yoga. Develop a skill: Study a language and/or a musical instrument. relatives and close friends Spend time with the people that matter most. MY TIME Read, relax, and look after yourself. Get my life in order: Keep an eye on things. The calendar will then ask How often with multiple increments and For how long once you select the activity and customize it (or choose Custom). Next, Google asks you to select the best time: Anytime: in the morning, afternoon, or evening.
Following confirmation of the Goals settings, Google locates events and adds them to your Calendar (each with a distinctive flag icon), emphasizing that it will eventually understand your preferences. Goal rings are displayed on event sites, and you can get Smart notifications before and after a session to help you plan and monitor your progress.
Today, Google Calendar for Android is releasing version 2022.30.2, which prepares a deprecation prompt:
Habits Deprecation Banner Title: andlt;string name=andgt;
Goals will shortly depart from Calendar.
According to Google, your calendar will still display the goals you’ve set, but they won’t repeat. In order to keep track of your goals, it advises scheduling reoccurring events.

rather than using a string, create an event.
This move is expected given Google’s efforts to make Calendar a focused Workspace product in the context of Reminders. Having said that, for a brief while in 2016, Calendar intended to emphasize individual productivity and time management. The device visible in the top cover image is a Nexus 6P. That would likely be an Assistant feature for Google of today.
Speaking of Reminders, the app keeps adjusting strings in preparation for its eventual demise and migration to Google Tasks. The work on expanding Google Workspaces Client-side encryption for corporations to Calendar (for events) after it launched in Drive and Docs/Sheets/Slides is also included in this release, which has not yet been widely distributed.
