Introduction

Unfortunately, we don’t offer Apple iCal and Outlook Calendar direct sync at the moment. But, you can still subscribe from Google Calendar to those other services and sync them that way.

To get this Outlook or iCal workaround started you’ll need to first set up Google Calendar sync with SSA.


Microsoft Outlook Calendar Sync Workaround

This will set up a one-way sync between Google Calendar and Outlook. Your Outlook will periodically check for changes in Google Calendars event list and download updates.

Visit this page for step-by-step instructions on how to subscribe your Outlook Calendar to Google Calendar.

So any new appointments will first go through Google Calendar and then Outlook will be able to pull in those events to its own calendar.

Note: Changes you make in Outlook aren’t sent to Google Calendar, so in turn you won’t be able to block off time slots in SSA from Outlook. You’ll have to do this from Google Calendar directly.


Apple iCal Sync Workaround

This will set up a two-way sync between Google Calendar and iCal.

The events you make in iCal are transferred over to Google Calendar and are seen by SSA if you mark them as ‘Busy’.

And the appointments booked in SSA will show up as events in your iCal calendar.

Visit this page for step-by-step instructions on how to sync your Google Calendar to your Apple Calendar.


Google Invites

Another thing to note is that with our Google Invites feature, you’re also able to send out calendar events to yourself and the customers.

Google basically sends out a notification that automatically adds the .ics file to non-Google calendars, like iCal or Outlook.
