"Quick Add" no longer working since layout update

Hello,

Since the new layout update, it seems the "Quick Add" functionnality does not work anymore. The Quick Add functionality used to add the time to an event based on what the user wrote in title. E.g. if I wrote "Dentist 14h" in the title, the event would automaticaly be scheduled for 14:00 that day. 

Am I missing something here ? Is there a way to switch this handy functionnality back on with the new layout ?

Thank you for your help.

Hi AntoineTA,

Welcome to the Google Calendar Help Forum!

Instead of 'Quick add' feature, you could now add events using the 'Quick add window' by clicking the '+' button at the bottom right corner in the Google Calendar's New UI.

Reach out if you have further queries on Google Calendar.

Best,
Sarah

Is time parsing from event title no longer available? That was an extremely useful feature.

Thank you for your answer Sarah. That will do it for now, although it is not quite as handy. I hope quick add will be re-implemented in a futur update.

I miss this feature a lot! I was very used to it, almost creating all my events in this way. Is there any online poll or feature request list? I'd like to +1 on this.
