In previous posts, we covered how to add an attachment to a Google Calendar event, and how to attach an email in Gmail, but what about attaching an email to a calendar event?
Attaching an email can be the perfect addition to a calendar invite. How many times has a meeting spurred from an email? It’s common for people to use emails to make lists of action items to take. When you’re scheduling the meeting to review over the tasks, why not just attach the email to the calendar event? Not only can an email serve as a good reference point throughout the meeting, it can also provide context for invitees to know beforehand.
Check out the video above and read the steps below to learn more:
