Tip of the Week: Creating an Event in Google Calendar

Tip of the Week: Creating an Event in Google Calendar

When you receive countless meeting invites or time-sensitive reminders on a day-to-day basis, it’s easy to forget a thing or two here and there. If you get an email, wouldn’t it be better to just make the event right from your inbox so your calendar can remind you about it when the time comes? Google Calendar and Gmail have this functionality built right in.

Add an Event to Your Calendar from Gmail

First, open your Gmail app on your smartphone or in your web browser. Next, look for an email that references a specific date, time, or location. You’ll be using this message to create your Calendar event.

Next, click on the three-dot menu in the top menu bar. You’ll see it next to Labels. From the menu that appears, click Create Event.

From this new window, you’ll see the option to enable notifications on your desktop PC. Whether you do this or not is up to you.

You’ll notice that an event title will automatically appear: the email’s subject line. Adjust this as needed, then use this opportunity to change any other information that might need correcting, like the date, time, location, description, etc. You can also use this chance to invite other attendees to the meeting so they too can add it to their calendars.

If you want the event to recur, this is also possible. Find these settings and adjust them right in the event itself. You can select it to run all day, too, if you select All Day from the provided time range.

It’s worth mentioning here that you can do all of this from Google Calendar, but the idea here is to get the event, then immediately make the event before you forget to do it.
