Schedulista can sync with your Google Calendar. Unlike subscribing to an iCalendar (iCal) feed, this is a two-way synchronization. Appointments from both calendars will appear on both calendars.

Note: Make sure to complete Step 4 or your sync will not be active.

Note about Google Calendar appointment status

Appointments on Google Calendar can be set to Free (or Available) or Busy status. If you want a Google appointment to block out time in Schedulista, you will want to set it as Busy.

Step 1 - Starting setup

(1) Go to your Calendar page

(2) Click the gear icon in the upper right

(3) Select Sync Calendar… from the menu

Note: You can only select Sync Calendar if you are viewing your own calendar. If you are an administrator or scheduler and are viewing another provider's calendar, this option will be grayed out and not be available.  

Step 2 - Enabling Google Calendar sync

In the Sync Calendar dialog, click the Enable Google Calendar Sync link

Step 3 - Authorizing sync through Google

You will be redirected to a Google authorization page. Click the Accept button to give Schedulista access to your Google Calendar.

Note: You might be prompted to sign into your Google account if you are not already signed in, or select a specific Google account to sign into if you have more than one.

You are not done yet.

You will be redirected back to your Schedulista calendar page.

Step 4 - Activating the sync

Now, you must activate the sync. 

(1) On your calendar, click on the gear icon in the upper right again

(2) Select Sync Calendar… from the menu once more

(3) In the Sync Calendar dialog, below "One more step...," select which Google Calendar to sync with from the menu. (You may only have one option.)

(4) Click Activate

Now, you are set. The initial sync can take up to 30 minutes.

Forcing Schedulista to sync immediately

Once your calendar has performed the initial sync, it will continue to synchronize appointments every 15 minutes. If you would like to force Schedulista to synchronize appointments immediately, click on the gear icon again, and choose Sync Google Now from the menu.
