Google Calendar went down today in the US, UK and most of Europe, throwing working people off their schedules. Visitors to Google Calendar on desktop began receiving a 404 error around 10AM ET. The company confirmed it is working on the issue in an update to their G Suite apps dashboard from 10:22AM ET. "We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Calendar. We will provide more information shortly. The affected users are unable to access Google Calendar," wrote Google. At 1:13PM ET, the company said the issue had been resolved, but didn't specify the cause of the problem.

"The problem with Google Calendar should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better," the company wrote on the G Suite dashboard.

If you tried to access Calendar earlier today, you probably received a 404 message or something like the message below. However, you could still access your agenda through the Google Calendar mobile apps. The issue seemed to be limited to desktop/web access.
