The two main uses of the command bar is to create and schedule events and tasks.

  • Create an event in your calendar: For example, you can type "Meeting with Amit at 3 pm at 11 City Diner in Chicago" and Morgen will interpret the time, location, and invitee. The event will be added to your calendar, and in this case, an invite will be sent.
  • Create a task: Simply type a task you need to do, such as "Take out the trash" and the task will be added. You can even indicate which task list it should be added to and schedule when it is to happen.

Creating an event

You can specify critical meeting details within the command bar, including:

  • To set a location, simply type ;[location name].
  • For event times, you can input a time, for example 3pm. The command bar is flexible and understands various time formats.
