7. How to Add Events to Google Calendar Via SMS


If you forgot to schedule a meeting or you don't have good Internet service, don't worry: You can easily add events via your mobile phone in a few quick steps.

From your computer, sign in to your Google Calendar account, click the gear icon at the top right of your screen and choose "Settings." Then click the "Mobile Setup" tab and enter in your information. Gmail will send a verification code to your mobile phone; enter the code and click "Finish setup."

Once the setup is complete, send events to your calendar by texting the details of your event (such as, "Dentist appointment 1:00pm April 20) to GVENT (48368). You'll receive a confirmation text message, and the event will appear in your calendar.
