Use a Pixsy Command to Post to Google Calendar

You can use a Pixsy command to post a new event to your Google calendar. The Google calendar application does an impressive job of parsing the statement that you enter into the correct calendar event fields which makes this a useful, time saving function.

The Pixsy Calendar Command

Long Form
.calendar
Short Form
.cal

Examples

Here are a couple of examples that demonstrate how to set one-time and recurring events.

Set a One-Time Event

You can use a command similar to the following to post a one-time event to your calendar:

.cal dinner with Diana at Telara 7-9pm on Tuesday

And here is what is automatically populated in your calendar:

Set a Recurring Event

It’s also possible to post a recurring event. Try a command like the following:

.cal Golf lessons with Gary on Tuesdays 5-6pm

Note that it was automatically turned into a recurring calendar event because of the way that you stated the time of the event (‘on Tuesdays’) in your command.

These are a few examples to get you started. Let me know if you come up with other ways to manipulate how your event is posted to your calendar.
