Welcome to Module 4, other event types. Google Calendar offers multiple ways to help you enhance your productivity and communicate about scheduling more effectively. In this module, we'll cover how to use other event types and features, including out of office, reminders, tasks, and appointment slots. You may have used the out of office auto-reply in Gmail to alert senders that you're not available. Google Calendar has a similar feature, out of office. You can set out of office times for either part or all of the day, or even multiple days. To set out of office for a day, in the top of the grid, select the day you will be away, then select out of office. By default, new and existing meetings during the out of office time you set will automatically be declined, although you can choose not to. You can also customize the default message that is sent when the meeting is declined. Alternatively, you can select and drag on the calendar grid to set a time for out of office. When you stop dragging at the end of the time frame, the Event Details window will appear, so you can modify the details of the event, in this case, out of office. When you create an event on Google Calendar, you can also opt to make it a reminder. To create a reminder, the box next to Reminders in your My Calendars list must be checked. Select any empty space in the calendar grid, and choose Reminder from the event types. Give you a reminder a title and set a date and time, then choose whether you want the reminder to repeat. You can also make your reminder an all-day event. Reminders will appear every day at the specified time, until you mark them has done or delete them. Reminders created in other Google products, like Google Keep, will also appear in Google Calendar. Reminders are always only visible to you. Tasks can be added to your calendar, the same way reminders are added. When creating an event, select Task, give it a title, and then set a date and time, or choose all-day. Optionally, add a description, and then select a task list to add it to, and then select Save. Tasks are available in the side panel in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Docs, Sheets and Slides. Appointment slots are special blocks in your calendar that people can use to reserve time with you. For example, as an HR professional, you could set up office hours, when employees are able to book a 15-minute slot to speak with you about benefits. To create a block of time for appointment slots, select the calendar grid while in the day or week views. Select Appointment Slots from the Event Details window, and give the event a title. Choose a time frame for the appointments, and then select a time slot length in minutes. If you choose a time slot duration of 30 minutes, and the block of appointment slots was two hours, four slots will be created. Unlike normal events, you don't invite potential guests. The appointment slot will have a special booking page that you can share with the potential guests. Guests can select a slot from the event, and then once a slot is selected, it's removed from the block as an option.
