Appointy + Google Apps with Google Calendar = Better Organizing

Do you use Google Apps? Appointy is now a part of Google Apps too.

Life is becoming so fast that the flow of information has increased tremendously and our hard disk (brain) which has limited capacity, cannot keep the information for a long time. In old days people used to keep personal diaries to manage themselves. Today, Google calendar along with mobile synchronization has replaced the old traditional diaries. The difference is the push technology which can notify user rather than user opening his diary daily and checking informations. Google calendar has really emerged as the best organizing tool.

Google calendar replaced your diaries but there was still something missing. Isn’t it?  What if the your client himself can come, see the empty times in your diary and fill their information. Wouldn’t it be great?

Yes, Appointy does the same. Appointy is now linked to Google Apps and it will extend your Google calendar further to take Appointments from your clients. Your clients will take appointment on Appointy and Appointy will update your Google calendar in real-time. Similary, any personal event you will book on Google calendar will be marked as Blocked on Appointy.  Each staff on Appointy can link their Google calendar with their respective accounts.

Please follow the steps to link Appointy with your Google Apps account.

  1. I'm not sure I understand how this works – do I still use the “Mashup” tab to set it up (and does this still require hitting the “sync” button? And how can each user link it to their own Google calendar?

  2. Yes, you still have to use Mashup tab to set it up. Appointy to Google Calendar is automatic and you need not to do anything but Google calendar to Appointy is Manual. Thats because Google Calendar does not provide any means to trigger code which can update Appointy.However, we have tried to make it easier and we have provided a unique link which you can bookmark on your mobile or PC and call it every time, you make changes to your Google calendar without logging into Appointy. You can find that link on the Mashups page.We are coming up with more Google integration very soon 🙂

    1. Thanks for the response. I guess the only way around that would be to have some sort of “connector” between Google Calendar and Appointy – similar to the way that Timebridge works, so that changes on Google automatically update.

  3. Do you have any ETA on better integration with google calendar? My issues were that you had to manual sync your google calendar to appointy calendar. Also, when someone books an appointment through appointy the details are not passed over to google calendar. It only has an id to appointy. It would be nice if you could configure what data is in the subject and body.Thanks!

  5. Hi there

    Does this integration allow the user to specify a CLASS of events that will be publicly available, somehow?

    I don’t want to define a range. I’d rather create discrete events that were tagged in some way such that they were published to the general public.
