Google Calendar’s “Quick Add” feature is a great way to add events to your calendar in seconds.
When you’re in Google Calendar, press the “q” key. You’ll see a small text box pop up near the top left of your calendar. (If you don’t see it, check your settings to make sure calendar keyboard shortcuts are enabled).
Type in a quick description of your event, then hit Enter.
For example, you might type: Meet with Sarah 2pm tomorrow
Confirm that the event was added correctly by looking for a yellow dialog box on the top of your calendar.
For best results, you should type in your event description in the following order:
What, Who, Where, When
(only What and When are required)
More Advanced Events
Adding a basic event is fairly easy, but what about if you want to do something more advanced, like a recurring event or an invitation? Both of those are possible. Here’s an example which uses both:
Book Club Wednesday at 6 pm repeats weekly for 4 weeks email@example.com
