Improved Google Calendar event creation on the web
Quick launch summary
Last year, we announced improvements to the event creation flow in Google Calendar on the web. We’re now adding even more editable event fields directly into the pop-up dialog, including:
- Guest permissions: Grant guests permission to see the guest list, invite others, or edit an event.
- Attachments: Add attachments directly alongside the event’s description.
- Calendar preview: Choose an event color, customize notifications, set free/busy, and change an event’s visibility.
We’re also improving the “Find a time” feature in this view, overlaying potential guests’ calendars to help you quickly pick the best time for everyone.
With these changes, you’ll now be able to add all of the necessary information to your Calendar event from one window, without having to click into “More options”—saving you even more time when scheduling an event.
Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
End users: There is no end user setting for this feature. This new creation flow will automatically appear in Calendar on the web. Visit the Help Center to learn more about creating an event in Calendar.
