  • (2023-11-22) Ahmed Dinar: Iโ€™m curious about the customization options! Can any one help what it provides?
  • (2023-11-22) Sudipta Ghosh: Aw man, I was really excited about this add-on, but no dice. Couldn't find it on the right side of my screen, and the sidebar just vanished. Seems like it's some weird Google Calendar problem. I was really hoping it would work.
  • (2023-08-28) Rafel Llevat: Despuรฉs de configurar te pide directamente la tarjeta.
  • (2022-07-18) Charlie Onta: EPIC Extension! Been using it for 15 days so far, looks super useful! It helped me reduce chunks of repeated, internal meeting hours and set up my schedule according to my priorities. Kudos!
  • (2022-07-04) Jonathon Dough: Amazing! Has freed up so much time on my schedule :) Seems like have been too many unnecessary meetings! Thanks to Tackle!
  • (2022-06-27) John Nash: Gotta admit, I was hesitant to use this app. Giving up control of my calendar, is really hard for me. After trying it out, I am very impressed. I love the auto tagging rules that automatically track my calendars since I don't have the time to track them. It also does have the ability to automatically tag color coded meetings, and here I have more control in choosing the tag colors. It's a great app with a lot of functionality. It's great to ease into as you become more comfortable with it.

  • (2021-01-28, v:2.3.0.beta) Heena Heena: Tags on events you have been invited to
    Can we not add tags to the meetings that have been scheduled by someone else? I get this message on doing that - "You are about to make changes that will only be reflected on your own calendar. Note, that when the organizer changes the original event, your changes will be undone! It is recommended that you keep a copy of your changed event description elsewhere."
  • (2020-09-29, v:2.2.2.beta) Maria Brumberg: can't add tag
    HI, I have installed the tags and made a set of tags in the back office. However, when I attempt to +add tag from within the event nothing happens...
