Google Makes it Easier to Avoid Unnecessary Invitations on Calendar

Google Calendar has made it so that you can integrate your schedule into a single resource that would be great for you from a wide range of different types of perspectives. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that a lot of users often complain about receiving notifications for unnecessary and unwanted invitations regarding various types of events.

In an attempt to make this somewhat less of an issue, Google is now changing your notification settings for the Calendar app. You will now have three options available at your disposal because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up giving you more control over the events that you are invited to along with avoiding notifications that could become a distraction for you. Plenty of users get invited to things they’d rather forego, and these new options help you do that.

If you select the Automatically Add Invitations setting on Google Calendar, you will be asked about your preferences for invites. Selecting the Yes option will automatically add any and all invites that you get, something that can be useful for people that don’t set their own schedule but rather have their schedule set by someone or the other that works for them or has a better understanding of what they need to be doing.

The second option is also a Yes but it will only send you notifications once you have confirmed that you are going to the event in question, or alternatively if you say Maybe to the event request. You also have the option to say No which would prevent any event invitations from being added to your Google Calendar. Introverts and people that get too many invitations would likely benefit from having such an option.
