Create a “Lazy” Calendar Invite

(applicable to Google Workspace users only)*

If you need to invite a lot of people to a Google Calendar meeting but you don’t want to add their emails individually and/or there’s no team alias you can add, try this:

  1. Create the meeting and finalize ALL details (title, time, location, description, etc.)
  2. Click “More Actions” in the top right corner
  3. Click “Publish Event” and share the “Link to Event” in an email to all the attendees

A few limitations of this method:

*I tried to get this to work on personal email accounts (i.e. non-Google Workspace users) but I couldn’t. PLEASE let me know if you found a way to get this to work on personal accounts!
