We know that you practically live out of your calendar.
Actually, Deloitte found that interacting with your calendar is the third most popular activity on a smartphone!
By the way, if your email inbox is filled with newsletters, try ledigest.email to get only the newsletters you want into just ONE email, and more!
Here are 5 extensions you can install to make your Google Calendar experience even better:
1. People insights in Google Calendar
Whether you work in sales, partnerships, venture capital or other professional organisations, you often get ready for meetings at the very last minute, looking up attendees on Google and LinkedIn. It's manual, time consuming and sometimes, you don't even have enough time to do it!
Rupert2001 brings people insights in your calendar: It connects to your calendar, researches who you're meeting with, and brings information for anyone you meet with, right into your calendar: name, job title, company, location, email threads with them & more.
Rupert2001 is not even an extension but a Google-verified background app - you don't need to install anything!
With it, you'll never walk into a meeting unprepared again!
We built this useful extension to easily capture meeting notes directly inside Google Calendar.
With Meetric and its Chrome extension, the notes are saved automatically against the right event in your calendar and you can easily find, add and share notes from any event in your calendar.
PS: Once the extension is installed, you have to sign in with your Google account in order to take notes.
3. Event Merge for Google Calendar
If you have the same events in multiple calendars, this extension is for you!
For instance, you may have your personal calendar, your work calendar and your team’s shared calendar all invited to the same event/meeting/call.
This extension merges all those separate events into one event, and gives it strips with all the individual calendars’ colours.
4. Checker Plus for Google Calendar
This extension allows you to see your next events, get meeting desktop notifications, add or snooze events without opening the Google Calendar page!
From your browser – and even when you’re offline – you can highlight information from any website and automatically add it to your events, create reminders and notifications, edit your schedule, and get a comprehensive view of your current calendar – whether that’s day, week or agenda.
5. TeamCal for Google Calendar
TeamCal provides a timeline/Gant view layout for all your events (including multiple & others calendars).
Bonus 1: Google Calendar Weekend Highlighter
This extension lets you choose two custom colours and two custom days, and those days will be coloured with those background colours.
Look forward to your weekend even more by highlighting your weekend in the Day, Week, Month and Custom views.
Bonus 2: Hide Morning in Calendar
Reduce the wasted space on your calendar by minimizing the range of hours in the morning.
With this extension you can customize how much of the morning is shown by dragging a grey handle at the top of the times bar on the left of the screen.
