In this blog post, we will learn how to bulk-create calendar events and save time. In an organization, there are multiple events that go on throughout the year. But organizing them without any hassle is a big challenge, and this is where the idea of creating calendar events comes in. Now, to simplify your life, you can create calendar events from Google Sheets, but if you need to do it every day, it can be time-consuming. 

By utilizing this functionality, you can input all the necessary details for your events in one go, and the calendar will automatically generate them for you. This not only saves you the hassle of repetitive tasks but also ensures accuracy and consistency across your schedule.

So, you need the help of an automation system to streamline the event creation system and ease your life. So, read on to learn more about bulk creating calendar events in Google Workspace through Foresight.

How can bulk-creating a calendar event help?

  1. You can create an event in the calendar to make the users aware of a particular event, and they will know about the event's title, date, and time.
  2. You can transfer (import and export) those events to the Google calendar from another calendar application or Google account.
  3. You can create a calendar event from an email message from Gmail. This is known as Gmail creates calendar events from email. This helps to invite people to an event through the Gmail message. So, the calendar event sends invitations to the users on the Gmail message automatically. Also, it includes the message in the event description.
  4. Again you can use a calendar link on email messages to increase the appearance of an event. Because the users can click the link to add the event to their personal calendar. Then they will get a reminder about the event. So, this is a symbol of a more personalized invitation. 

You can add a Meet video meeting event when you use a calendar for work or school.
