How can I make Google Now ignore some calendars?

My wife's calendar is shared to my calendar and then synced to my phone through my account and I currently get reminder cards for her events in Google Now. I would like to only get cards for certain calendars.

Apparently, Google Now uses the "My Calendars" section of Google Calendars.

When my wife's calendar was shared with me, I was granted "Make changes AND manage sharing" rights. This puts the calendar into "My Calendars" for both users' calendars. When I changed it to "Make Changes to events" on my wife's sharing tab, the calendar moves from "My Calendars" to "Other Calendars" for my account and I no longer get notifications in Google Now for that calendar.

  • Thanks! Since you can't change your own sharing setting, I had to share it with another account, then change the setting on my main account from there, and then unsubscribe the other account :)

Instead of synchronizing her calendar to your phone, try setting her calendar "shared" and then subscribing to it from your own Google Calendar. When you subscribe, I believe you can set it to not pull in the reminders.

  • +1 because you helped me find the solution. Her calendar was shared, not synced via google sync.
