Symbols are characters used as representations or indicators to tell us the meaning visually. We see it everywhere, including the Calendar app on Mac. And while most of the symbols are clear in what they represent, there are other times when we scratch our heads.
For a clearer understanding of what all the Calendar symbols mean on Mac, we've compiled explanations and screenshots to help you describe what you see.
Symbol for calendar notifications
To invite events you receive or switch to an existing event, you can view notifications in two places. One of them is in your Dock, assuming you have the Calendar app there.
And everything else is in the Calendar app itself.
This gives you several different ways to find a series of events that you should pay attention to.
Symbol for the event
When you are the organizer of the event, you want to know if the person you invited accepts, rejects or responds "maybe".
We'll show you the symbol for each of your invitations later, but for your actual event, you can also view this status.
If you invite other people to an event, there are some symbols that you can see next to the person's name.
At a glance, you can see if those who responded, accepted, rejected, or responded as possible.
And there are a few more symbols for those whose availability you can access or if that person is not registered on the calendar server you chose.
You may see some additional indicators in the calendar app. For example, all-day events are highlighted in the same color as the calendar, so they are easily recognized in Month view. For day and week views, this will appear at the top of the day.
Also in Month view, events for a certain time will appear with a dot next to them that matches the color of the calendar.
If you see event with the line that runs through it, has been canceled And if you see circle with a line through itThat means you reject the event.
Some Calendar symbols on Mac are easy to understand at first glance. But others, like different question marks, are not entirely clear. Hope the search for the symbol you see will help you!
