Any app should help you reach your goals. In this article, I wanted to show the most important features of Google Calendar.

I use Google Calendar for more than 10 years. The possibility of accessing the calendar from my laptop, phone or tablet, makes the app indispensable. Moreover, the notification helps me remember important things from my agenda. As our activity become more complex, it is absolutely necessary to have an agenda or digital calendar.

Here are some features of Google Calendar that you might not know.

1. Adding an attachment for a meeting

Any meeting should have a goal, agenda and efficient preparation (according to GAP model developed by Rob Kelly – more here). If you want to attach a document for a meeting in which you invite other colleagues or partners, this easy function will be helpful.

2. Send invitations directly from the event creation

This is useful for simplifying the communication related to an event. If, you will change the date or hour after creating the event, then by changing it in Google Calendar you update the other participants. This is far better than a lot of emails with “Reply to all”

3.Find an hour for your meeting

If you want to check your calendar availability for a meeting you can choose “Find a time” option. In this way, you can see if you add your meeting in certain intervals, comparing with other events.

4.Location details

Google Calendar integrates with Google Maps, so if you want to be specific on the meeting place, you can easily add the name of the meeting point, and it shows the address. Moreover, the participants will have a  label called “Map” and with this, they can go on Google Maps to see exactly the location address.

5. Adding other calendars

You can add the calendar of a friend or browse interesting calendars for Holidays or sports events. Any event will be after that added to your own calendar. Of course, you will have the possibility to hide those calendars, when you want to show only your meetings. You can also share your calendar with others.

These are only some of the features of Google Calendar, that help me plan my activities. You can find more features here. You could check also the Hubspot article here with more advanced tips & tricks.
