Why the Google Calendar daily agenda is so useful
Many workers start the day by checking Google Calendar. It’s a simple way to keep track of appointments and meetings. This tool helps you organize your daily, weekly and monthly schedules.
You can use this tool to keep on top of responsibilities. This includes:
- Daily tasks.
- Work events and more.
You can also use Google Calendar with Microsoft Teams. This way, you can share your schedule with others and create multiple calendars you and your team can use together.
However, there’s a way you can be even more productive. You can check your daily agenda without even opening Google Calendar. Instead, you can have Google send daily emails informing you of your schedule. This saves valuable time in your busy day.
How to make Google Calendar send a list of daily tasks to your inbox
It’s pretty straightforward: It all comes down to a setting inside Google Calendar. It’s turned off by default. Just follow these steps to turn it on:
- First, open Google Calendar.
- Then, select your calendar on the left-hand side. Click the three vertical dots.
Next, select Settings and sharing.
- On the new page, scroll down to the Other notifications heading.
- Notice the Daily agenda feature. By default, it’s set to None.
- Click None to open a drop-down menu. Here you’ll see another option: Email. Select it to turn on the daily agenda emails.
Just like that, Google Calendar will send you daily agenda task lists at 5 a.m. This makes life much easier. Now you’ll have a quicker start to each work day!
