Google has added a new way to easily create events in Google Calendar directly from a Gmail message. Starting today, dates and times within emails will be lightly underlined. Click them to schedule that conference call or lunch date without ever leaving Gmail.
When you click on one of these underlined dates, a small window will pop open where you’ll be able to preview your schedule for the day and change the title, date or time of the event. Clicking “Add to Calendar” will do exactly that -- add the event to your calendar, and for extra convenience, the calendar event will include a link back to the original email.
This new feature will be rolled out over the next week to everyone with the English (US) language. Google says, they'll be adding other languages soon.
