'Quick Add' doesn't recognize an entry

This feature is available in English only.

While the Quick Add feature is pretty good at recognizing calendar-related keywords and phrases, it's not perfect. Here are a few tips to help you as you use Quick Add to create events:

  • Enter the basic elements: what, when and where.
  • Use double quotation marks to block date/time parsing. For example, enter [ meet Scott at "Taco Tuesdays" Friday 8 pm ].
  • Quick Add doesn't currently support conjunctions (e.g. March 13th & 14th, 4/16 till 4/20, etc.)
  • For All Day events such as birthdays, don't specify a time. For example, just enter [ 7/15 Julia’s birthday ].
  • When entering a time, use a colon. For example, enter [ 9:15 ] instead of [ 915 ].
