I'd like to choose the calendar on "Quick Add" instead of modifying the event details once after adding. Is it possible?


There are 2 ways to quick-add your event:

  1. Open the Event "pane", clicking on your calendar, or by pressing Shift + c

  2. Open the quick-add box, by pressing q

There is no support for choosing default calendar for both #1 and #2. But with #1, if you uncheck visibility of other calendars, then you event will go to the first visible calendar, which is sort of workaround to pick default calendar.


As mentioned by Whitingx in the comment, it is not possible currently but you can vote for it here.

The "Quick Add" feature in the mobile version of the Google Calender adds the event to your default calendar.
