Here you can find some documentation about the configuration options of CalenGoo for Android.

You can find these configuration options by tapping the menu button when you are in the calendar view and choosing "Settings".


Here you can see a list of all calendars CalenGoo syncs with. It displays the Android calendars and additional calendars that you sync directly with Google. You can configure which calendars should be synced and visible.


Contains some options how pop-up reminders are handled:
  • Activate reminders:
    Specifies if CalenGoo should display an alarm when there is a pop-up reminder for the current time.
  • Reminders for Android calendars:
    Specifies if CalenGoo should display alerts for events that are loaded from the Android Calendar (instead of a directly synced Google Calendar). When you enable this you should disable the alerts of the stock calendar app because otherwise you might get all alerts twice.
  • Sound:
    Specifies if it should be an audible alarm.
  • Choose sound...
    Here you can choose a custom sound for CalenGoo’s events from your sound files or ringtones.
  • The
    Show pop-up window
    Displays a pop-up window instead of using the status bar notification system when a reminder is due.
  • Use custom color for pop-up window
    Here you can specify the background color of the pop-up window
  • Blink:
    Specifies if the LED of the device should blink to indicate the alarm. If this option is turned on, an additional "Color" option will appear where you can choose the color that the LED should use.
  • Vibrate:
    Specifies if the device should vibrate.
  • Insist (alert until acknowledged):
    This will really remember you, it can even be quite annoying: The device will play sound/blink/vibrate until you stop the alarm.
  • Repeat interval:
    CalenGoo can repeat the alert a number of times in a configurable interval.
  • Open event when notification is selected:
    Determines if the event or only the app is opened when the reminder notification in Android’s status bar is selected.
  • Reminders for new events:
    Here you can specify reminders that are automatically added to new events.
  • Snooze function:
    When “Open event when notification is selected” is turned on and “Snooze function” is turned on, too, you will get four choices to snooze/postpone the reminder for a few minutes. Here you can also configure the time intervals that will be displayed.
  • Return to calendar view after snoozing:
    If turned on, CalenGoo will automatically return to the calendar view screen after you have selected an entry in the snooze screen.
  • All-day reminders:
    Determines the base time for all-day reminders. Reminders will be displayed relative to this time on the day of the event.
  • Turn phone silent during events
    This will activate the phone’s silent or vibrate profile during events. Additional options are Only during events marked as busy, Silent profile and Use previous profile after event (instead of turning the sound on).


Here you can add additional Google Calendar accounts to sync with. The advantage of syncing directly with Google Calendar is that you can download more historical data (e.g. your full calendar) and see icons of events. To add an account tap the “Add Account” button. Afterward you will be asked if you would like to download the last month, last year or all your calendar data. Please see Accounts for more details.

Here you can also find Sync Options to automatically sync those directly synced accounts with Google at certain intervals in the background.


Here you can configure your Google Tasks account. Please see: Tasks


Here you can download additional icons. Icons can be used in directly-synced Google calendars, i.e. those that have been added under “Accounts” above. Please see: Icons
