As a new time-saving feature in v1.1, you can now select text from any application or webpage and use that information to create a new Quick Add entry by pressing the "Control+g" keys.

The application will display Google’s interpretation of your request for verification. It also includes a direct link to the created event, in case you need to edit it.

This application also solves the biggest complaint about the Google Calendar Quick Add feature by allowing users to select which calendar they want the event to be added to.

Please see the Google documentation for additional information and restrictions about this feature at

How to use

Once you have downloaded the file to a location of your choice, simply run the executable, no installation is needed.
After you run the program, all you will see is the application window on the right-hand side of your Taskbar.

The main interface is extremely simple. Checking the “Start with Windows” checkbox will allow this application to auto-start every time you start your computer. Unchecking the checkbox will disable this feature. You must first click the “Refresh” button in order to populate the list of calendars. The FIRST time you do this, you will be asked to authenticate to Google and allow this application to have access to your Google Calendars. Please follow the requested steps.


The drop-down will then be populated with the list of the Google Calendars that are linked to the account you selected. Please note that the calendars you only have READ access to will not appear in the list.

Make sure to select the calendar you want to add the entry. Type in the description of the event in natural language (please follow Google’s recommendations), and click the “QuickAdd” button to create the event in your calendar.

The status of your request will appear in the status bar at the bottom of the main window.


A verification window will also appear to display Google’s interpretation of your request.

A direct link to this event is available at the bottom of the verification window in case you need to edit and modify the event.
