I love Gmail. Love search and threaded conversations. However, the calendar is rough. My biggest pet peeve – silent events. When people invited me, I wouldn’t see an email and I wouldn’t get notifications at all. It’s pretty ridiculous. I was missing meetings left and right.
Luckily there’s an easy solution. Go to your calendar and click the arrow, then choose “Notifications”. There, you can set a bunch of nice notifications – multiple reminders, daily agenda emails, and emails when events come in, get canceled, etc.
Phew! I can use the Calendar happily now!
