And to make the matters worse, people always mind if you don’t wish them timely. But hey, technology always has a solution to every problem. Since I started using Google Calendar, remembering birthdays isn’t an issue for me. Google Calendar notifies me about people’s birthdays on Email, appsand SMS.  In this article I will tell you how to use Google Calendar to get reminders about your friends’ birthdays.

1- Click on this link to Open Google Calendar page. Make sure you are logged in your Gmail account.

From the left side, click on My Calendar and then click on Birthdays. You will get a complete date page with dates and days columns and rows. There will be separate slots for time. Select your slot and add the name of the event. Click on “Create”. An event reminder will be created. Click on that event and you will be able to edit it. You can add time details, notification message and much more.
