Setting Your Google Calendar Location

Google | |

Did you know that Google Calendar allows you to add your location to different days?

This helpful feature allows you to set your location, meaning your team can see where you are, which helps you to manage and arrange meetings.

What’s more, with more people working from home since the start of COVID, you can also set the location to home.

How to Set Your Location on Google Calendar

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar
  2. At the top right, click the cog icon > Settings
  3. Scroll down to ‘Working hours & location.’
  4. Check the box next to “Enable working location.”
  5. Select the days you work
  6. Next to each day, enter your working location

If you already have this option ticked and no longer want the calendar to show your location, you can untick this box – a warning box may appear telling you that it will remove the records of your location, but if you’re not using that then this is fine to go ahead.

Setting Working Hours & Out Of Office

In the same section in settings, you can also set your working hours and out of office. It’s important to note that when you indicate that you’re out of office, your calendar will automatically decline all meetings during that time.
