Your rating: None
To keep all of your upcoming appointments and events at your fingertips, you can choose to display your Google calendar on your Gmail homepage. Simply follow these easy steps to enable this feature.
What you'll need: 
A computer with Internet access
A Gmail account
Login to your Gmail account and click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of the page.
When the “Settings” page opens, click on the “Labs” tab. The page will bring up a variety of features that you can add to your Gmail preferences.
Scroll down the page until you find the “Google Calendar gadget” and choose “Enable.”
Click “Save changes” at the bottom of the page. Gmail will then reload.
Once the gadget has been enabled, your Google calendar and the next few events will be visible on the left-hand side of your Gmail page. You can then scroll through your appointments and add reminders directly from there.
If your computer is low on processing speed or your Internet connection is slow, your Google calendar may not load properly. If this happens, simply click “Try again” to reload this feature.
