You can add an item to your schedule from an email containing appointment or event details, such as an address or date. You can also set reminders to follow up on certain emails related to upcoming events. Here's how to add an email to Google Calendar. How to Attach Email to Google Calendar Appointments, meetings, reminders, and tasks are typically added to Calendar, either manually or through invitations. This organizing tool ensures that you never miss important events like birthdays, anniversaries, and dental checkups. If you receive event notifications in email, tell Calendar to add those events to your calendar. Follow these instructions to attach an email to Google Calendar. Open Gmail in a new web browser tab or window. Open the email message that you would like to add to your Google Calendar. Select the More button, represented by three vertically-aligned dots on the right side of the Gmail toolbar (above the email subject line). In the drop-down menu that appears, select Create event. A new tab opens, loading the Google Calendar Event creation screen. Most of the email message details are pre-populated in the event fields, including the subject line and body content. These fields can be edited. If needed, make changes to the date and time of the event as well as reminders you want to set. Attachments that were part of the original email are also included in the Calendar event. When you're satisfied with the new event details, select Save to commit the event to your Google Calendar. You also have the option of inviting guests to view or edit the event.
