Creates an event in your Google calendar based on selected text.

Image from store Create Google Calendar Event
Description from store Select or highlight text containing a date, time, and event title. (Time and title are optional.) Right click on the selected text and click “Create Google calendar event for ‘….’”. This extension will open the Google calendar new event page filled in with the date, time, and title info that it found. Save the event, making adjustments if desired, or cancel event creation with the “X”. You can create events from any selectable text in Chrome. - EXAMPLES OF SUPPORTED DATE FORMATS - • November 1st • November 1 • 2 November • 2nd of November • November 15, 2020 • 2001 November 15 • 10/24 • 10/24/2020 When the year is missing, the extension assumes it is the next occurrence of that date, whether it’s this year or next. - EXAMPLES OF SUPPORTED DATE/TIME FORMATS - • 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM on 11/2/2019 • 3:00 on 11/1/2019 • 5pm to 8pm on 6/15 • 3PM on 8/10 If no time is selected, it will assume an all-day event. If AM/PM is missing, it will guess which. If only one time, the start and end time will be the same. Any text not part of the date/time becomes the event title. If there is no event title, it will just call it “Event”. - EXAMPLES OF EVENT TITLES - • "Sushi with wife at 7PM on 11/2". Event title will be “Sushi with wife” • "Olive Garden with friends on November 1st". Event title will be “Olive Garden with friends” • "10/24 Kayaking on the Rio Grande". Event title will be “Kayaking on the Rio Grande” - FEEDBACK - Please email support at [email protected] with any suggestions of other formats to support. Also, email any other feedback, including selected date/time text you think should work but does not. Google Calendar™ is a trademark of Google Inc.

  • (2023-10-02) Jennifer: Error! Couldn't convert 'XXXXX(Traditional Chinese)' into date to build an event.
  • (2023-05-27) 平井伸治: 動作しない。「Error! Couldn't convert '・・・・' into date to build an event.」と表示される。
  • (2023-03-01) Klaus Minhardt: Did not work. Veryold and not supported extension
  • (2023-02-25) Seat Cleaner Estofados: Se funcionasse para o formato de hora e data daqui do Brasil, seria EXCELENTE! Mas não funciona. Não tem como fazer para os brasileiros não? =/
  • (2022-09-23) Shashwat Black: Great initiative, but needs some improvements -- - The entire selected text can be copied to email description - Title needs to be a summary of the selected text (or at least a subset of it). Perhaps the tab title can be used as the event title. - Needs to add the page URL into the event description. - When a time is given in the selected text, the event should start at given time and end time should be empty (or default to +30 minutes). Current behavior is <specified time to specified time> which doesn't make sense.
  • (2022-09-02) Jordan Haffner: Automatically parses dates as MM/DD with no way to change the behaviour. Defeats the point of automatic creation if I have to fix every date manually.
  • (2022-06-05) Yury Itskovich: Simply doesn't work. No option to connect to your existing calendars (in fact, "Options" is not available when you right-click on the extension button), and clicking on "Create Google Calendar Event" just takes you to this very page in Chrome Web Store. Maybe this used to work at one point, but it hasn't been updated since 2019 and should probably be taken down.
  • (2021-10-26) Ljupcho Naumov: Works well, lowest effort way to create calendar events and set reminders from raw text and messages.
  • (2021-05-01) E Evans: Yes! No more missing Handshake events because they don't send you a calendar invite.

    Hi, could You please add the check for date in format DD.MM.YYYY? IMO its easy to find parsing methods for DATE TIME in EU format. I'll be then gratefull.
