Automatically add events from Gmail

""

Tips

Keep track of all your reservations, meetings, or travel dates by viewing the synchronized events from your Gmail inbox in Google Calendar. 

When you get an email about an event like a flight, concert, or restaurant reservation, it's added to your calendar automatically. You can choose who can view these events in your calendar.

If you don't want events from Gmail on your calendar, you can delete a single event, or change your settings so that events aren't added automatically.

Important: Starting January 25, 2021, if you're based in Europe, you must indicate how we can use your Gmail, Google Chat, and Google Meet data. Through certain Gmail settings, you control, for example, whether we can share your data with other Google products. These settings are off at first and unless you turn them on, various Google product features, such as in Gmail, won’t work. For more information, see Smart features & personalization controls in Gmail, Chat, Meet, and other Google services.
