Here’s how to leap to a specific date in your Google Calendar to rapidly examine a previous or future event or appointment.
Google Calendar utilized to have a Jump to area under its Labs feature, however this was eliminated after the Calendar upgrade in 2017. Now, the process to go directly to a specific date involves turning on keyboard faster ways to trigger the Go to feature.

Going to a specific date is possible only with Google Calendar on the desktop, not its mobile app.
Open Google Calendar on your desktop.
Select the Settings menu (the gear icon in the upper-right corner) and then select Settings from the drop-down list. This puts you into the Settings options.
In the General menu on the left, select Keyboard shortcuts.
Select the checkbox to enable Keyboard shortcuts.
Exit settings to head back to your calendar.
In Google Calendar, type the letter G to bring up the Go to date box.
Type in your desired date and pree Go, and Google Calendar will bring up that date.
Go to Any Date Using Year View
Another option is to switch Google Calendar to a yearly overview, allowing you to quickly go to any date.
Open Google Calendar.
On the upper-right side, select your current view. For example, if you’re viewing your calendar by week, this will say Week.
Select Year from the options.
You’ll now see your Google Calendar in yearly form, making it easy to select a certain date.
