Quick Add was this sweet feature where you could paste in text and it would try to parse out and guess the info for the event. You could put in something like ‘call Josh tomorrow at 7am’ and it would create an event for tomorrow at 7am with the title ‘Call Josh’.
This lovely bit of functionality, in the Calendar, is gone. 😭 I would like it back. And a lot of people agree with me.
Just do a search for ‘Quick Add’ in the Calendar Help Forum to see the threads.
And of course people are noticing on Twitter.
So what can you do about it?
1. Submit Feedback
Click the gear icon, then click ‘Send Feedback’. Tell Google you need Quick Add back in your life.
2. Comment and upvote the other forum posts
I don’t know how much Google weighs Forum post activity when deciding what to develop and prioritize, but it can’t hurt.
3. Install the Chrome Extension
The Google Calendar Chrome extension still has the Quick Add parsing functionality.
You can install it here — Google Calendar Chrome Extension
Hopefully Google will see the light, and Quick Add will come back to us.
