Adding Google Calendar Events from your email

There are multiple ways to add Google Calendar events from your Augustana email. One special way requires no action other than to receive the confirmation email for a hotel, flight, or event from a recognized sender (like an airline or Ticketmaster, etc). By default only you can see those calendar items.  These items are added into Calendar automatically (or not) based on a setting in Calendar:

  1. Open Google Calendar.
  2. In the top right, click¬† the Settings “gear” and then Settings.
  3. Next to “Events from Gmail,” check/uncheck the box next to “Add automatically” as desired.
  4. At the bottom of the page, click Save.

You should also be able to click on a dotted line under a date and time, if it appears, or within the email click on the three dots and choose “Create Event” and then edit the details as needed.
