How to View All Events as a List in Your Mac's Calendar App

Some third-party calendar apps (Fantastical, for example) allow you to view all your upcoming events as a vertical list. Many users find this sort of viewing mode beats staring at the regular calendar interface, since it provides a quick at-a-glance summary of their entire schedule over the coming days and months. Fantastical 2 for Mac On the face of it, Apple's Calendar for macOS lacks an equivalent feature. However, there is one way to force a list view that includes all your events, which we've detailed below. The trick even works with iCal going back at least to OS X Mountain Lion, which makes us wonder why Apple doesn't make the option a bit more obvious. How to View All Events as a List in CalendarLaunch the Calendar app on your Mac. Click the Calendar button. Select which calendars you want to include in the list view using the checkboxes. Click the Search field in the upper right corner of the Calendar window and type two double quotes ("") to generate a list of all upcoming events. We find the list view makes it easier to copy multiple events and paste them into other apps in chronological order. For example, to copy several contiguous events, hold the Shift key, click the two outlying events bordering a given period, right-click (or Ctrl-click) an event in the selection, and select Copy from the contextual dropdown menu. You can then paste the events (including their details) straight into a document in date order. To copy non-contiguous events in your calendar, simply perform the same action but hold down the Command key instead of Shift.
