If you're a Gmail user, any calendar event you are invited to will be directed to your email. In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how they can directly respond to a calendar event invitation right there in the main view with the new RSVP quick action button from Google. In addition, this button can also show tracking and flight details, and other items it finds in the email.
