How to Make an Appointment Schedule in Google Docs

When you have a full schedule ahead of you, it's easy to forget an important date or event. According to The Telegraph, one in four people misses an important appointment. Now, to avoid this, an appointment schedule would be a big help. It will remind you of your appointments, as well as allow you to manage your time wisely.

Follow the guide below on how you can make an appointment schedule in Google Docs.

1. Know Your Appointments

To start, list down all your upcoming appointments. Arrange them by date and time and provide details about the appointment. This includes who you're meeting with and where you'll meet. And keep your words short and straight to the point.

2. Create a Timetable

Now that you have your list of appointments, it's time to create your timetable! But before that, decide whether it's going to be an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly schedule first. To form a timetable, add a table to your document. Provide enough rows and columns, and ensure you have enough space to write on. Don't want to go all this trouble? Use our Appointment Schedule Templates to easily and quickly craft an appointment schedule.

3. Plot Your Schedule

Now that your table is set, start plotting your schedule one by one. Put your labels (the time and day) on the topmost row and the title on top of your table. Also, add color to organize your schedule and make it look more visually appealing.

4. Double-Check and Update from Time to Time

When you're done creating the schedule, double-check to avoid errors. Then, produce a digital and printed copy so you can always check your schedule wherever, whenever. And be sure to update your schedule from time to time!
