    1. Hello,

      Appointy provides 2 way synchronization with Google calendar. Appointy to Google calendar is automatic while Google calendar to Appointy requires a unique URL to be called after any changes to Google calendar. This unique URL can be bookmarked and does not require to login.

      As soon as someone will book an appointment, Appointy will update Google calendar in real-time. Similarly when some one will add an event on Google calendar then *it can be blocked on Appointy.*

      *- Integrates well with your mobile’s native calendar via Google Calendar and Google Sync
      *Once linked with Google calendar, Appointy will update Google calendar which can further synchronize to Android phones or other mobiles using “Google Sync” which can be downloaded from here.
      This synchronization works like a charm and this double synchronization is instant.

      *- Each staff can link their own Google calendar.
      *Appointy allows multiple staff login and each staff can link his own Google calendar.

      *- Google Apps calendar can also be linked.
      *Appointy can link with your Google calendar on your Google Apps account,
      just like you integrate normal Google calendar account.

      Following are the steps to link Google calendar to Appointy:
      1. Login to your admin area.
      2. Go to MASHUPS>>GOOGLE CALENDAR>>Click on the “Synchronize with google
      calendar” link

      I hope this helps. Should you have any further questions and concerns. I’ll
      be happy to help.

      Best Regards,

      1. Hi Manishi,

        Thank you for this feature. I have been having trouble with blocking appointments in appointy that were made in google calendar. I did all of the steps. The mashup-google-(put in correct calendar)-(checked “active”)-hit “saved”-clicked on “sync with google calendar” and it didn’t block the time. I just tried to log out and log back in, and the time looks like it blocked correctly. Is this what I have to do every time or is there an easier way?

      2. (continued)
        Ok, I tried to schedule a couple more appointments in google calendar, went through the manual update, logged out and back in and it didn’t block the correct times. I think I must be missing something?

  1. Hi,

    I cannot get this  working either. Followed all the steps. It syncs one way from appointy —> google. But not the other way round.
    Please can you fix this!!
