Project Description

📖 < 1 min read

Last year, Google announced improvements to the event creation flow in Google Calendar on the web. Google is now adding even more editable event fields directly into the pop-up dialog, including:

  • Guest permissions: Grant guests permission to see the guest list, invite others, or edit an event.
  • Attachments: Add attachments directly alongside the event’s description.
  • Calendar preview: Choose an event color, customize notifications, set free/busy, and change an event’s visibility.

Google is also improving the “Find a time” feature in this view, overlaying potential guests’ calendars to help you quickly pick the best time for everyone.

With these changes, you’ll now be able to add all of the necessary information to your Calendar event from one window, without having to click into “More options”—saving you even more time when scheduling an event.
