Google Calendar shows you statistics to let you know how you spend your time. Google is adding a new feature that will let users know how much time they have spent in meetings and other commitments.
A new dynamic designed for those who have schedules working from home and the office. Not everyone has gotten used to this new work model, so this feature will help you keep in mind how you spend your time according to your Calendar schedule.
Google Calendar is adding “Time Insights”, which as you see in the image above, are those statistics that are added to our calendar panel. Weekly statistics that will show the amount of time we have spent in meetings or recurring activities.
Time Insights will show the weekly hours, as well as the busiest days in our agenda and the daily average hours, among other data that will be broken down in the side panel. On the other hand, it will also show details about our interaction with your collaborators and contacts.
For example, it will show you with which users you spend more time in meetings and activities. And just by hovering the mouse cursor over the name, you will see all the meetings in your calendar that include that contact. So with a simple glance, you can find out what your routine has been in the last few weeks or how you can modify your agenda taking into account recurring commitments.
One detail to keep in mind is that this statistics view is only available in the web version of Google Calendar. This new option is available for Google Workspace Business Standard and Plus, Enterprise Standard and Plus, Education Plus, and non-profit customers.
Time Insights will be enabled by default in all these accounts, but administrators will be able to change this setting.
