New Google Calendar Feature Makes It Easy to Track Your Time and Stay Productive

Google Calendar is a popular tool for scheduling appointments, meetings, and events. It allows users to easily manage their time and stay organized. Now, Google is taking it a step further by allowing users to set working locations for specific portions of the day, enabling them to accurately plan their schedules and improve their productivity.

This new feature is particularly useful for people who work across various locations throughout the day. For example, if you work from home in the morning and then go to the office in the afternoon, you can set your working location accordingly. This will help you plan your day more efficiently and avoid scheduling conflicts.

To use this feature, simply follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Calendar on your computer.
  2. Click on “Settings” at the top right corner.
  3. Click on “Working hours” under “General” on the left side of the screen.
  4. Select the days you work.
  5. Next to each day, enter an existing working location or create a new one.
  6. To change your working location, go to a specific day on your calendar and click the location bar. You can apply the change to that specific day or set it to repeat weekly.

This feature is also helpful for coordinating in-office time with others. Your administrator may ask you to set your working location to help with this. If so, a yellow banner at the top of your calendar will show the request.

In addition, if you have “Make changes & manage sharing” access to a calendar, you can edit the default working location. This is useful if you want to set a default location for all your events.
