Google Calendar is celebrating its 10th anniversary today. Just like Windows 10 is introducing new features on its anniversary, Gooogle has also added a feature to the calendar. The company announced this latest change via its official blog. Read on to know what the calendar will do for you now:
Has it ever happened to you that you have set a goal for yourself but have failed to attain it or totally forgot about it? Google Calendar will now help you set personal goals and also find the free time from your hectic schedule so that you make no excuses for not achieving whatever you set out to do. Still confused? Suppose weight loss is your goal for which you have decided to jog at least 3 times in a week. Then all you have to do is, set the same goal in the calendar and the app will check your schedule so that you know how much time you can allot to the goal.
Here is how Google explains the setting up of goals in Google Calendar
Google in its official blog post wrote, “To set a goal (like “Work out more”), simply answer a few questions (like “How often?” and “Best time?”), and you’re all set. From there Calendar will look at your schedule and find the best windows to pencil in time for that goal.” Explaining Goals further, the company wrote, “Goals aren’t easy—especially when the unexpected comes up—but Calendar can help you adjust in a number of important ways. For example, Calendar will automatically reschedule if you add another event that’s a direct conflict with a goal.”
Please note that this feature is mobile-only. To make it available on your phone, update your iOS app from App Store and Android App from the Play Store.
