I had the impression that when you create a Calendar reminder, it automatically creates a Google Keep reminder too. This is not the case it seems, after trying it.

However, when I create a reminder through Google Keep, it is automatically shown in calendar.

Am I doing something wrong, or is it a Google bug?

    A feature, not a bug. Tasks (i.e. created in keep) can have a location set. When you're 'in' this location then the tasks will show up in your calendar for actioning. I stopped using keep because I could never configure tasks to show up at the right times etc. This may now have changed (hense not putting an answer) as it was years ago.

Per this link, two way reminders between Google Calendar and Google Keep are not completely synchronized.


In Google Keep, Notes which you add a reminder to, automatically make a corresponding reminder in Google Calendar. However, the reverse is not true (yet). which is a little bit of a bummer but good for me to know. (i assumed it was true both directions.)

I just submitted feedback on google calendar. Perhaps they can implement that feature and close the loop.
