There’s a dialogue box that points to the day or time an allows you make prompt plans for an upcoming event. You could also choose the more details link and add more details.
Bring in a whole calendar full of scheduled events at once from you Outlook, iCal or Yahoo if you choose to. One thing you should know is Google doesn’t sync directly with software like Outlook or iCal.
If you happen to use both tools, you’ll have to keep importing events. It can be a hand full but there are third party tools that sync between the calendars.
