How to Add Reminder in Google Calendar

Calendar is created to maintain a schedule in our lives and there’s no better option than Google Calendar. Google Calendar can help you organize your day-to-day work at home or office. In addition, a calendar app can keep you up with busy schedules, deadlines, or weekly/monthly reporting. Google Calendar’s Reminder feature is built to ensure you don’t miss any important meeting or a task in case you don’t remember it. You can set up Google Calendar with specific dates and times with necessary information to remind you. 

Once the reminder is set, it will inform you on that specific day and time unless you cancel it or mark it complete.  Google Calendar also provides an option to quickly autofill the necessary fields to make it faster to set up a reminder. For example, if you want to set up a reminder for “a meeting with X company”, it will automatically fill in any information that Calendar has already received before about that company like the company phone, address, etc.

There are three ways to set up and add reminders in Google Calendar. i.e., via a computer, the mobile app, or Boxysuite (for mac users).
