Ever needed to quickly add a calendar item/meeting/event to Google Calendar, but didn’t have web access? Well, this little known SMS tip should help you out.
First, you’ll need to go to your Google Calendar settings and register your mobile phone number, which is a simple process.
The syntax follows that of the “Quick Add” -
What: This can be any text; the event title is created from this.
When: This can be nearly any date and/or time expression. Using “at” and/or “on” can help the recognition.
Who: This should begin with “with” followed by a list of email addresses; these are added to the guest list.
Where: This can be any text following “at” or “in.”
Here’s a basic example -
“Meeting with Tom Monday November 10 at 2pm”
After sending that, you’ll get a response saying it was added, and confirming the info.
There’s a whole lot more info on how to use this feature in the Gcal help files.
