Hide Morning and Night

Do you have meetings at 2 am? Likely not. There is no reason to see midnight to 7 am or 8 am. With Hide morning and night, you can disable your non-working hours. Google is smart enough to show you if you do have an event during your hidden hours.

  1. Click on Setting.
  2. Click on Labs.
  3. Enable Hide morning and night.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Change your calendar to either day, week, or 4 Days.
