Save time planning business travel and more with events from Gmail on Google Calendar

By | Blog @en | No Comments

The Internet has made business travel―booking flights and hotels, reserving restaurant tables, buying event tickets, and more―infinitely easier. Adding that information to a calendar, on the other hand, has remained time-consuming and tedious, typically requiring people to copy and paste information from various confirmation emails. In the coming week, Gmail and Google Calendar will start working together to lighten that load for Google Apps customers, and make business travel planning even more seamless.

When an individual receives an email in Gmail with flight, hotel, restaurant, or ticketed event information, that event will be automatically added to their Google Calendar, complete with things like flight numbers and check-in times. Calendar will even update those events if plans change and a new email is received (for instance, when a flight is delayed or a reservation pushed back).

This feature will be enabled by default on desktop and mobile (both iOS and Android) for all Google Apps customers―with the exception of Google Apps for Government domains, for whom the feature is not available. Events from Gmail added to Calendar will be visible only to calendar owners by default (those with delegated access will not see these events). Calendar owners will be able to delete any individual unwanted events as well as adjust visibility settings, or disable the feature altogether, in their Calendar settings if so desired.

At launch, people using Calendar will see an in-product screen, either on mobile or web (whichever is accessed first), explaining that events from Gmail will be automatically added for their account, and indicating that the feature can be disabled in settings.

Once the first event from Gmail is added, a one-time email notification will also be sent to the user from Google Calendar, explaining the settings and sharing details for events from Gmail.

Notes:

  • This feature is not available for Google Apps for Government customers
  • This feature was launched to consumer Gmail accounts late last year

WordPress update 4.3 brings useful changes

By | Blog @en | No Comments

The latest update to WordPress (version 4.3, named Billie Holiday) introduced some very interesting and useful changes, most of which will both help website administrators and authors in producing content and keeping their sites safe. One of the most interesting and overall very welcome change is the new password system. Passwords generated automatically will be significantly stronger and each reset password request will trigger a different procedure for password retrieval from now on. Or should we say password reset, because WordPress will no longer send passwords via e-mail! Instead, a password reset link will be mailed, prompting user to reset the existing password to something new. The password strength meter is also a welcome addition to the password setup procedure.

Google heeft enige tijd geleden een extra factor toegevoegd wat de ranking of positionering bepaald van jouw website in haar zoekmachine: de SSL of HTTPS factor. Aanvankelijk werd het als een kleine Google update aangekondigd, maar het blijkt uit statistieken dan websites met een beveiligde verbinding een betere positie krijgen dan onbeveiligde, ‘normale’ websites.  Read More
