The WorkFlowy to Google Calendar Chrome extension has been updated to support the new Google Calendar format.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is I haven’t figured out how to hack into Google’s Quick Add parser using the same lightweight, no permissions method as before. So for now, I’ve opted to keep things light and permission-free. The trade-offs are:
- No date parsing, new events default to today, in the next half hour time slot.
- Default event duration is hard coded at 30 minutes.
- Selected text has been disabled.
- In the future, date parsing is possible, but it will require an extensive rewrite.
If you have the extension installed it will update automatically. If not, head to the Chrome Web Store.
But I’m classic!
If you are still clinging to Classic Google Calendar, install the WorkFlowy to Classic Google Calendar bookmarklet. Enjoy all that date parsing magic while it lasts.
But I don’t like extensions!
Likewise, if you don’t use Chrome or extensions, but are using the New Google Calendar, install this WorkFlowy to Google Calendar bookmarklet.
