How to Make a Calendar in Google Slides
There are multiple ways to add a calendar to Google Slides.
Using the first method, you can simply take a picture of the specific month and add it to Google Slides. You can take a picture of the calendar using the snipping tool in Windows or download a picture online. To add it to Google Slides, click on Insert in the toolbar and then on Image. Here, click on the Upload from computer. After the picture is uploaded, you can drag it using the cursor and resize it by clicking and dragging it from the corner.
Another way to add a calendar is to create one on Sheets and insert the spreadsheet into slides. Check out the linked article to find out how you can do this.
If you’re looking to insert a calendar in PowerPoint or Slides that are a bit more interactable, you can do so using a table. Here is how to insert a calendar into Google Docs Slides:
- Open Google Slides and open the presentation where you wish to add the calendar.
- Now, click on the general area where you want the table to be, click on Insert in the main toolbar, and click on Table.
- You can select the grid size in the pop-up menu. Using a 7×7 grid is a good choice if you’re not sure where to start, and it gives ample space for adding the day names in the header bar and the dates in the cells.
- Add the names of the elements in the cells. After you’re done adding them, you can resize the table by clicking any of the edges of the table and dragging your cursor inwards or outwards.
- You can also change the fill or text color of the cells by using the options in the main toolbar. Use the Fill color option to change the cell background, the Border color to change the color of the border lines, and the Text color option to change the color of the characters in the cell.
