Convert Gmail messages to Google Calendar events
Appointments, appointments, reminders, tasks, and other items are usually added to Google Calendar manually or through someone else’s invitations. This handy online organization tool helps us keep our busy lives in order so that we never miss milestones like birthdays and anniversaries, or important events like dance shows and dental checkups.
One little-known feature that Calendar offers is the ability to create appointments from your own emails, which can be useful for a number of reasons. It’s obvious to add an item to your schedule from an email that contains details about a particular appointment or event, such as the address or dress code, making it easy to refer to that information as the date. approaches. One not-so-obvious use of this feature is to set reminders to track specific emails by pulling calendar events from the messages themselves, once again ensuring that all pertinent details are always accompanied by a timestamp.
Just because this feature isn’t widely published doesn’t mean it isn’t worth adding to the digital repertoire, as it can improve productivity and greatly simplify your day-to-day workflow.
