    When I set up my pixel 2 I kinda brushed past the setup and I accidentally disabled the important calendar....I can't find the setting for adding it back...and now I don't get events on the homescreen.

    Calender has the setting your looking for in the app drawer..

    Or are we talking the widget?..It's not in your Widget list?...Hold empty screen/choose widgets.

    If it not there check the play store. Make sure installed or maybe reinstall and see if the widget show up.

    Nova doesn't seem to be allowing me to see my events, so I glance at my widget.

    This. If you long hold you get preferences. You can enable calendar events but I've never gotten one. I briefly remember getting a setting prompt the first time I started asking which calendar to use...I picked the wrong one.

    So, are you saying that you do not have the above at the top of your home screen? (Home screen being defined as the one you come to if you double-tap the home button at bottom center)

    If not, then I question whether you are actually using the default Google Pixel launcher as - as nearly as I can determine - it is impossible to turn off either the "At a Glance" bar (top of screen) or the Search bar (bottom of screen) in the default launcher.

    Go to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> Advanced -> Default Apps. Your "Home app" should be Pixel Launcher.

    obviously I have it if I posted a screenshot. Again, it's not showing events.

    Does long pressing on the widget not open up an edit option?

    It does and brings up the preferences. That's how it's been set.

    Last question then I'm tapped: Do you have Events selected under "Personal" in Google App > Settings > Search/Personal?

    Yes. Like I said when I started it prompted which calendar to use and I picked the wrong one. No idea where that setting is.

    I don't have the 2 XL yet, but if it were me, I would try clearing my defaults and cache for the Google app and maybe Calendar (unless there is another app associated with this) and see if that gets you some prompts on the widget again.

    Sorry, it wasn't clear if that was from your own device or something you located elsewhere.

    Okay - question: if you tap the Day/Date strip (tap, not long press), does it open a calendar?

    If yes, once the calendar is opened, tap the hamburger menu at top left and scroll down; you should see one or more lists of items to enable/disable. For example, on my device, I see my own Google account with Events, Reminders, and Family each of which can be checked/unchecked. Below that, I also have my work email (synced via the "Nine" Exchange email app) and my three available work calendars.

    In so far as I know, these are your choices for what displays when you tap the day/date strip - basically, it opens the Google calendar app and display whatever you have set up in there to be displayed.

    I'm not seeing any events on mine either... But I'm also using Exchange with Nine for most of my calendar items. So I'm thinking this feature only uses the Google calendar and not the aggregated phone calendar.

    Do you also have a personal Google account? If you do try creating an event in your personal account and see if it shows up.

    This could be and issue like on the Google Home where they can't do anything with corporate Gmail yet.

    Okay, then what are you expecting to see?

    I just set up a test appointment on my work Exchange account with a 5 minute reminder. When the time came (my phone was off with only the "Always On" display showing, it beeped and a small square calendar-like icon displayed just below the clock.

    Double-tapped the phone screen and saw the larger white notification bar listing my test appointment; unlocked the phone and saw same in the notification bar. There is nothing in or around the day/time strip.

    If you are not getting any of the above, try going to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> Notifications -> App notifications and check the settings for Calendar.

    If you are expecting something different, please elaborate.

    I've tested this with my Google calendar and it works. It doesn't show the event until you get close to the remainder window. Although this does not seem to work with my exchange account through Nine.

    The Pixel 2 clock and weather widget will also show calendar notifications.

    The Digital Clock widget, yes (and, I presume, the Analog Clock widget as well) but that doesn't seem to be what the original poster is asking about...

    If you look back on his second post in this thread he added a screen shot of this exact widget I'm talking about. So I would presume he's talking about getting reminders to show up in this widget like Google demonstrated in their Pixel 2 launch event.

    Well, other than at the launch, I haven't seen them there either. Maybe with 8.1?

    I wasn't seeing them either until I added an event to my Google calendar and even then it didn't show up till the time got close to the the reminder.

    It's a shame it only seems to work with the Google Calendar right now... any other calendars I have added to my phone under accounts doesn't seem to show up. Like my Exchange account in Nine, notifications don't show up there even though I can see them in the main calendar app on the Pixel. And it sounds like what he's saying it doesn't work with corporate Gmail either.
