I love Vancouver and have always wanted to live there. I’m here at Pixel Crafters because I’m hoping to make some connections in the world of design + tech in Vancouver as I will need a job in order to move there!
It’s always annoyed me that Google Calendar only allows you to enter appointments on the hour and half hour increments, unless you dive deep and open the full appointment creation screen.
Turns out I was wrong.
When using the quick-create pop up for creating a calendar appointment, all you have to is type “@ 11:45” into the appointment title (or any other time of course) and the appointment widget adjusts to the right spot in your calendar view.
It’s a nice little trick you don’t need to teach a new user but will delight an experienced user when they find it, or could easily be discovered if somebody took the time to look it up in Help.
It’s the little things that make software nice to use.
