If you’re scheduling meetings with colleagues, students or clients, it’s important to make sure that everyone is on the same page. One of the easiest ways to do that is by attaching a file to the Google Calendar event with the help of Google Calendar Labs.
Since this features is not available natively with Google Calendar, you’ll first need to enable the Event Attachments Lab. This Lab makes it really easy to add files directly from Google Drive (or your desktop) as an attachment. This is perfect if you want attendees to be prepared before a meeting begins, or if you want to quickly refer to a file during the event.
To Add Attachments to Google Calendar:
- Go to your Google Calendar
- Click on the Settings gear in the top-right corner of your screen
- Select Labs
- Scroll down and enable the Event Attachments Lab
- Save your changes
Now when you create a new event, you should see a new field that allows you to ‘Add attachment’. Keep in mind that this only allows you to add attachments to events you have created, not events that you have been invited to.
