- Joe's switch to Google G Suite: BusyCal list view, 9999 days, sort by repeating events, calendar, etc.; Google Calendar: how are the interface arrows still not Retina?!

BusyCal took about 5 hours to delete all calendar events on Google G Suite, to reset calendar database (to resolve duplication without having to delete recreate all calendars and reconfigure all sharing settings)

Empty Trash in each of Google Calendars

Two Options in BusyCal: Option 1) File: Import (imports to a new local calendar), can be adjusted, reviewed, split, etc. locally and then events dragged and dropped into calendars on server; or Option 2) Drag and drop .ics file onto BusyCal icon in Dock, choose existing server calendar to import into

Google Calendar adds gross text to the end of the Notes field on every calendar event by default, unless you turn off this feature first:

Gmail can only delegate the entire email account, rather than specific mailboxes (maybe because there's no concept of "Mailboxes", only "Labels"?). Does it even show in IMAP?
