We already created a plug-in to sync from SimplyBook.me to Google calendar a long time ago. This plug in allowed the users to check their appointments in a Google calendar app on their phones in a simple way. In our first version we synchronized all the appointments to the connected calendar, but to only one, and we did not sync from Google calendar back to SimplyBook.me. This meant that service provider did not see their individual calendars and they could not block times from Google calendar if they were not going to be available for appointments.
But we have Great News ! We have now upgraded our Google calendar plug-in so that it works individually for each registered service provider allowing him/her to see only the relevant bookings and if the provider blocks from his side a time on the Google calendar for any activities, it will also block it on SimplyBook.me. This is a great enhancement for this plug-in, and makes it much more usable for users and employees.
This plug-in is in fact now absolutely indispensable for any company that has employees who want to easily check and work with their schedule !
To start using our new Google Sync plug-in, just go to plug-ins section, activate the plug-in, go the the plug-ins settings. There you can see list of all employees/service providers. Click on Connect Google account for each employee you want to have and and check the sync busy time to sync both ways.
Each connected google email will be displayed in the relevant line for the employee/service provider.
REMARK. You might get a warning message from Google while creating connection because we have not registered with them to connect securely but we are working on that so meanwhile you can still accept and all will work correctly.
