For those who fear forgetting important appointments, Google Calendar can be the perfect ally in the process of remembering them. Simply put, it is possible to add reminders to the calendar and be notified when the scheduled time arrives. On top of that, you can even customize it according to your needs.
Check out the step by step process.
Adding reminder in Google Calendar
On your computer, the first step is to access Google Calendar at google.com/calendar. In it, look on the left side of the screen for “My calendars”, a menu followed by some boxes, such as “Contacts” and “Tasks”.
Find the “Reminders” option and make sure it’s also checked, because that’s what allows your appointments to show up on the calendar. When verification is complete, it’s time to actually add the event you don’t want to forget.
To do this, simply find the specific date on which the reminder should occur and select it. The command will cause a new screen to appear, which must be filled in with the necessary information. Click on “Reminder” to specify and add a title to keep you from forgetting what that appointment is about.
After that, just choose the reminder time. If you don’t need to specify a time, the platform gives you the option to adjust so that the event is extended to the whole day; just click on the box next to the “All day” function.
Once that’s done, you need to adjust the repetition frequency. This point has very different options, allowing the user to be remembered whenever they want, both daily and weekly, monthly and even annually. If none of the alternatives are sufficient, Google Calendar gives you the option to customize the repetition frequency to suit your needs.
Check the data one more time, from the selected day to the scheduled time. If everything is ok, just click on “Save”.
If you notice that there was a mistake in the information, just change the filled data. To do this, open Google Calendar and select the reminder you want to update by clicking on the pen icon, which is used to edit the content. With the command, you can change all the details, from the given title to the time and frequency of repetition.
The process can be repeated as many times as necessary.
