Google’s productivity apps are quickly replacing Microsoft Office as the software of choice for consumers and businesses alike. The appeal of the Google platform is compelling: The apps are platform-independent, free to use, and best of all, cloud based. It’s never been easier or less expensive to be so productive. And with Google Calendar, there are a number of features and hacks that help you to get the most out of it.
Here are just a few ways to extend Calendar’s usefulness:
If This Then That (IFTTT) is an online service that can automate tasks based on conditions you set. You can write your own “recipes,” but there are already plenty of shared ones that integrate with Calendar to get more out of it. If it’s going to rain tomorrow, then create a reminder to bring an umbrella. The possibilities are endless.
The Internet has enabled geographically dispersed teams to work together efficiently, but when you’re spread across multiple time zones, things get confusing. You can add an additional time zone to the calendar display, or add a World Clock for quick reference to any or all zones across the world.
Integrate your calendar with Facebook so that events you’re invited to there show up in Google, too.
Calendar lives online, but you don’t. Using Google Chrome, event data can be synced to your laptop for viewing any time you’re offline. Or, send a text message to 48368 to get your schedule for the day (or the next one) delivered to your cell phone.
Scheduling appointments over email can be frustrating. By setting up time slots as “Available for Appointment” and then sharing your Calendar with people, your colleagues, clients, and prospects can see when you’re available and reserve a spot that works for them. You’ll both get calendar invites notifying you of the time your meeting was scheduled.
These are just a handful of ideas to get you started. There are dozens more out there, which you can easily find with—you guessed it—Google.
