A meeting is rarely “just a meeting”, there is prep work to be done and documents that need to be read before any productive discussion can take place. Adding attachments to Google Calendar events is a great way to ensure everyone is on the same page before you sit down in a room together. This feature used to only be available through Gmail Labs, but thanks to a recent update, adding attachments to Calendar events is a permanent feature.
Would you go into a meeting to pick a new company logo without looking at the design proposals? How about a discussion on budget when you haven’t seen the accounting spreadsheet? Of course not! It is time to take your preparedness to the next level. Attachments are not just for emails anymore.
