How To Use Google Calendar

The most important benefit that we expect from digital Calendars is- Reminders. And with Google Calendar you can use your internet browser for receiving reminders. Now, in order to get reminders, you need to create Events on Google Calendar.

But first, let’s have a look at the Google Calendar interface.

As you will notice that all the dates on the Calendar are presented as separate blocks. You can actually switch between views. The Interface screenshot you see above is in the Week View.

However, you can always switch between the available view options. But for the sake of this Tutorial let’s use the Week view.

Add an Event To Google Calendar

Now to add an event, all you need to do is simply click on the event date. This will open up the Add Event Pop-up.

Start by giving your event a Title. Then move down and specify a date and time for the event. The date and time fields will activate as soon as you click on them.

Now under the title, you see two tabs- Event and Reminder. Navigate to the Reminder Tab.

The first option inside this tab includes the feature of repeating the event. You can pick any of the built-in repeat styles or use the Custom option and create your own style.

Once you are done with all the specifications hit SAVE. And you have successfully added an event to your Google Calendar.
