Google has rolled out a new update to their Gmail service this week which has added a great new feature, that now allows you to add Google Calendar events directly from within Gmail emails.
Now event dates that are underlined within Gmail emails can quickly and easily be added to your Google Calendar.
Google explains a little more about the new Gmail update and how its works:
"If you do a lot of scheduling over email, it’s now a little bit
easier to create events directly from your Gmail. Starting today, dates
and times within emails are lightly underlined: click them to schedule
that conference call or lunch date without ever leaving Gmail.
When you click on one of these underlined dates, you’ll be able
to preview your schedule for the day and change the title, date or time
of the event. Clicking "Add to Calendar” will do exactly that — add the
event to your calendar, and for extra convenience, the calendar event
will include a link back to the original email.”
Google is rolling out the new Gmail feature over the next week to everyone with the English (US) language, so be patient if it hasn’t already landed in your account.
