Copying Reminders Between Devices

Google Calendar has a cool Reminder feature that provides you with notifications on your phone, email inbox or both when an important event is looming. If you are like me and share calendars between devices (or family members), you may have found it tricky to copy reminders from one device to the other. Thankfully there is the Tools menu where users can import and export events and reminders on a per event basis. This would be useful for example when you are scheduling a meeting with someone on your laptop and want that reminder on your smartphone. The Tools menu allows you to copy the event from one calendar to another, which will then use the same Reminders. It’s also handy if you have an iOS or Windows phone (which have limited Google Calendar functionality) where you can copy reminders over to the smartphones quickly.
