Receive daily agenda by email

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

You might sometimes find it useful to receive emails containing your daily agenda, especially as a backup or if you are going to be away from your desk.

Here is how I do it!

Go to the Calendar, Click on the Cog icon at the top right and choose “Settings” from the drop down

Step 1

Then Click on the “Calendars” Tab and then on “notifications”

Step 2

Then Check the box beside:

Daily agenda:
Receive an email with your agenda every day at 05:00 in your current time zone.

Step 3

Every morning I then receive an email on my phone that looks a bit like this:

How to check if you can attend a meeting from the invite

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

A colleague recently asked me how to check whether or not she will be free to attend a meeting from the invite.  (You can click the images below to expand.)

There are two ways:

a) if you are using an email client (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird) Click on “More Options >” in the message

and you will see the Google Calendar in the web view.

Then Click on “Find a Time” and you will see the proposeed meeting ghosted over your calendar at the suggested time

2) If you use the web interface for reading your mail, you will notice (in your inbox) a calendar icon between the subject and the date click this to see a usefully laid out invite which includes your agenda items around the proposed event
