Google Calendar is one of my most frequently-used tech tools. Do you want to learn some tips for using calendar more efficiently and effectively? In the first podcast episode for our Productivity themed month, I share some of the Google Calendar shortcuts and hidden features that you might not have yet discovered.

I cover:

  • Ninja shortcuts for navigating Google calendar
  • Why having multiple calendars is awesome

To quickly move around your calendar, try the following:

  • Switch between day/week/month using the shortcuts d, w and m
  • Jump to today by pressing t

  • Use mini calendar on left to select a series of days. Click and drag your mouse over the date range and Google Calendar will jump to that time
