I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly adding things from my email into my calendar. It doesn’t take long but just the cutting and pasting from an email into a calendar appointment can slow me down enough to take me out of the “Zone” when I’m working on a project. That’s why I was excited to try a new service that called Super.CC and allows you to add an appointment to your calendar with just an email. You use it just like Tripit, another service I love (you can read more about that HERE).
Here’s how it works:
1. send an email or copy [email protected] on the email with the appointment name in the subject and the details in the body. You can even put @ “meting location” in the body and it will put the location in the appointment so you can pull up the map on your phone.
You can learn more about the different feature on their FAQ page.
It’s super easy and works pretty well. It doesn’t always get the location right, but it seems to be getting better. The location is still a new feature they are playing with.
It works with a variety of calendars, I’ve been using it with my Google calendar, so I’m not quite sure how well it works with some of the others, but I’m sure it’s great.
The best part it the service is free, so what do you have to lose. It’s lists itself as “Early Access” so I’m not sure if they plan on charging for it in the future.
