Google Allows Gmail To Prompt Calendar Invites From Body Text

Great news for avid users of Google's communications suite. At long last, Google has added the ability for Gmail bodies to trigger Google Calendar invites. Starting today, dates and times within emails are lightly underlined: click them to schedule that conference call or lunch date without ever leaving Gmail. When you click on one of these underlined dates, you’ll be able to preview your schedule for the day and change the title, date or time of the event. Clicking “Add to Calendar” will do exactly that -- add the event to your calendar, and for extra convenience, the calendar event will include a link back to the original email.


Everyone who uses Gmail on the US English setting should see the feature within the next week or so, while others will need to continue doing things the manual way -- for a short while, anyway.

Wow. I have been using a little script to do that for the longest time. Last gmail change broke it again and I became too lazy to fix it since it is a feature I rarely use. Glad they are finally doing it.

This is looking really cool! I would definitely use this... hopefully it is actually well implemented
