Forget Dates? Google Reminders Can Help

Most people are very busy and often have days where there is more than one thing to do.  If you want to be more organized, try using Google Calendar to help you remember an event.

The Lone Tree Photography Club uses Google Calendars to record upcoming events.  You can use this public calendar to remind you when an event is to happen.

You will need a Gmail account (free).  Setting up a Gmail account provides you with dozens of FREE resources, including Gmail and Calendars.

It’s easy, start by logging into the Lone Tree Photo Club website.  Find the “Event Calendars” tab in the top navigation bar.  Click on it.

You will have to make a choice between the LTPC Event Calendar or the Meetup Event, it works the same on either calendar.  Pick one.

Next you will see a calender with events on it.  Use the cursor to click on the event.

Clicking on the event will bring up another page with the full event information on it. It should look something like this:

At the bottom of the page is another link that says, “more information” click on it.This is where you can configure a reminder to be sent to you via

  • Email
  • MS
  • Pop-up (on your monitor)

If you are unsure of the best method to use for contact, because you aren’t sure if you will be sitting at your computer or out and about at that time, you can set up multiple reminders!  The way I do it is to create a reminder at two different times, one to remind me to get ready and the other to reminder me go now!

I use Google reminders on my Google Calendar all the time. In fact, I use multiple calendars and merge all my calendars into one.  It’s very convenient!  Once you start using Google Calendars you will realize how handy they are and how seldom you forget to show up at events you were looking forward to attending!

Give it a try.  Let me know if you need help in getting it done!
