Create Google Calendar Events With These New Chrome Shortcuts

Google Calendar has two new shortcut functions that make scheduling new events or meetings easy. All you have to do is is type “cal.new” or “meeting.new” in Google chrome to be taken straight to the Calendar event creation page. No more having to navigate through the calendar and fiddle around with extra settings.

The coolest part: These shortcuts can even be used across multiple accounts. If you’re signed in to multiple Google accounts on Chrome and want to schedule something on more than one profile, all you have to do is add a number to the end of the shortcut that corresponds to the account you want to save the event to. For example, “cal.new/1/” or “meeting.new/1/1" saves to the first account synced to Chrome, “cal.new/2/” will save it to the second, and so on. This works without having to switch between accounts in the Chrome settings.

This should make scheduling and managing your Google Calendar events a lot easier. Similar shortcuts also exist for tons of other Google apps, including Google Docs, Slides, and more, and we’ll be rounding up all of them in a future post.
