Collaborate with others on Google Calendar invites in Google Docs

What’s changing

Following our most recent innovations in smart canvas with custom building blocks and collapsible headings in Google Docs, we’re adding a building block that lets you collaborate with others to draft calendar invites. 

This can be useful when several stakeholders have inputs for dates, times, attendees, event descriptions and more. Similar to the email draft template, once the invitation is complete, simply click the Calendar icon to pull the details into Google Calendar when you’re ready to send.
