Pro tip: Add focus time to Google Calendar
Add focus time in your Google Calendar and share the calendar with colleagues. This way, they can see if you’re available or offline. They can also see when you will probably come back online.
Schedule recurring tasks in Calendar
- It’s possible to schedule recurring tasks at different frequencies (daily, weekly, monthly or custom). You can have a meeting recur every 2 weeks
- Recurring meetings should always have an end date. This prevents meetings from cluttering up the calendar while they should’ve been cancelled weeks ago. When the meeting range ends, you can always create a new meeting, but you have to add everyone again. This is a great way to verify if all attendees are necessary in the meeting.
Add multiple calendars so you have one overview of your own calendars and others
It's possible to get access to other people's calendars. Go to Add to Calendar in Calendar Settings. Search based on the email address to request access to a calendar.
There are 2 ways to share your calendar: full details or just free/busy only.
Share it with your organisation (everyone in Google Workspace) or with specific people. I wouldn't recommend sharing it publicly, because anyone can see your calendar that way.
Use colour coding for different companies or projects
Master your focus
Minimise distractions from your devices, get control by keeping your focus and feel on top of work, instead of being distracted and feeling overwhelmed.
