Calendar Reminders

The Google Calendar reminders serve as good as any of the reminders coming out from a mail client, also offering you the ability to add multiple calendars. It is very simple to add reminders to your Google Calendar. Google Calendar reminders were first rolled out only for mobile App and now it is also available in the browser.

To add a reminder in the web browser click on any of the empty boxes in the calendar and you will get a new small window. In that click on the reminder tab and fill the details for the fields. You can select the date range, should be repeated and if you want the reminder to be there all day. If you want to create a reminder in the mobile App, just tap on the ‘+’ sign at the bottom right corner. There you well get three options to select – event, goal and reminder. Select reminder and type in about what Google should remind you, date and whether should be repeated.
