Changing the Default Meeting Length and Print Options in Google Calendar

Instead of using the standard 30 minute time slots for meetings, users can change the default meeting length to 15 minutes. Specifically, rather than having to manually change the meeting length by clicking into the event page, users can change the default length in the Google Calendar settings page.

Additionally, Google Calendar now allows users to select a specific date range to print.

Superstars, Nested Labels, and Advanced IMAP Controls

In addition to Gmail’s basic star feature, Google now provides different stars for visual reminders. Users can set which stars and the order they want to use them in Gmail’s settings.

For organizing emails, users have the ability to label their emails. Gmail recently made small improvements for this function, such as nested labels, sticky collapse/expand ability, and better editing options.

Thanks to Gmail’s new changes to IMAP controls, users who access Gmail through IMAP clients (i.e. Outlook, Thunderbird, iPhone mail application) can enjoy new features such as syncing only selected labels and limiting the folder size limit.
