Want to see how long it is until your next meeting, and what the meeting is about in Google Calendar? Just click the gear and select labs. Near the bottom is the Next Meeting extension. Click enable and return to your calendar. Now, to the right of your calendar you’ll see what’s coming up next and how long you have to prepare.
This week’s tip comes from Kim Komando:
If you’ve signed up for an event on Facebook, or just want to keep track of everyone’s birthdays, syncing your Facebook calendar to your Google Calendar is easier than you’d think.
First, log in to Facebook and click on the “Events” link in the left column. At the bottom of the right column, you’ll see links for Upcoming Events and Birthdays. Right-click on the link you want and choose Copy Link Location.
Then open your Google Calendar. In the left column, find Other Calendars. Click the down arrow in the Other Calendars page, and then click “add by URL.” Paste the link that you copied from Facebook, and click Add Calendar.
After a few seconds a new calendar option will appear. It will update automatically, however Google says that it might take a few hours sometimes.
