Google Calendar Settings
This is where you’ll choose the calendar to show events from. Any of the calendars that are in your Google Account will appear in this list.
Select how frequently the widget should refresh and check for new events from the selected calendar.
Scroll Delay (seconds)
With most calendars, you won’t be able to see every event on the screen at once, so the calendar will need to scroll through events. Here is where you’ll set the duration of the scroll delay (in seconds) that the widget should wait before beginning to scroll.
The delay will also occur if the widget gets to the end of the list before scrolling back up to the top.
Set how fast the calendar should scroll through events.
