I'm a big fan of the Google Calendar feature where a calendar event automatically gets generated from certain emails.
I would however like to have some more control of this process, akin to how I can set up filters that sort my email into separate folders or does other actions.

To be precise, now in corona-times, I get quite a lot of invites to various zoom/teams/etc.. meetings that are job related. I would like that these events show up in my work calendar and not in my private "default" calendar - while preferably leaving other events still in the "default" calendar.

Can this be done, and how?

I can't find a default calendar setting. But if I have a bunch of updates for a particular calendar, I realized that by unchecking all calendars EXCEPT the calendar you want to default to, it works.

  • I'm not sure exactly what you mean here. I still want to be able to see my other calendars, i would expect unchecking them makes them invisible. Can you please elaborate? Commented Nov 11, 2021 at 9:05
