Some observations first:

When you are in Month View in Google Calendar and enter an event name in the pop-up, it will be created as a whole-day event.

OTOH, if you enter the event name like "19:15 Foo" or "14-16 bar", then Google Calendar will be smart enough to create the event with correct time (and remove the hours from the name itself). Cool - significantly removes the clicks needed to add something.

My quesiton: What more can be done this way? Can I easily add an event with auto-repeat, for example? What else?

The Quick Add parser is pretty powerful.

  • Include a location by using "at" and a non-time value: Lunch noon tomorrow at Luigi's Pizza
  • Include guests by using their e-mail address(es):Meeting tomorrow 3PM team@stackoverflow.com
  • Set recurring events: Conference call 10am every Tuesday for 11 weeks
