Best way to use Google Calendar

You can create an event directly from Gmail by simply opening the mail received. Go to more options represented by three vertical dots that will show you “Create event”. This will make sure that the subject of the mail becomes the title of the event whereas the mail thread becomes the description and everyone in the CC and To list becomes the guest.

All you need to fill in the location and the event is ready to be saved. You can also enable the secondary time zone in Google Calendar by going to the Time Zone in Setting and enabling the secondary time zone. In case you need to plan a meeting with an international client, you will have to make sure that your time is not their off time, so their time zone along with yours will be shown in the calendar.

If you are someone who needs prior notifications, you can do something for that too by increasing the default notification time. This will make sure that you receive a notification before a certain time that you have filled so that you get enough time to prepare for it.
