Our calendar integration allows you to import Google Calendar events into Resource Guru, and send Resource Guru events out to Google Calendar; so you can ensure seamless scheduling without clashes, no matter where your time is booked.
New bookings and changes to existing events are automatically updated in the connected account, so you’ll never have to worry about being out of sync.
A few things to note:
Imported calendar events won’t affect your availability.
The full details of imported events will only be visible to you. Other people will just see the dates and times of your imported events.
External events sent into Resource Guru are read-only.
Changes that are made to Resource Guru events from directly within Google Calendar will not be saved. The details of an event will be restored from Resource Guru every 2 hours, so if you would like to make a change to a Resource Guru event, this must be done from within Resource Guru itself and not from within Google Calendar.
If your time zone in Resource Guru is different to the time zone you use in Google Calendar, there could be a discrepancy between the time shown for events across the two apps.
To set up 2-way syncing between Resource Guru and Google Calendar, visit the Dashboard and then click Sync to calendar.
You’ll be shown a window where you can set up a full 2-way integration between Resource Guru and Google Calendar, or subscribe to your Resource Guru schedule via a 1-way iCal URL. Click Connect to set up the 2-way integration.
A new window will appear; enter your Google credentials and then click Next.
You’ll now be taken to your Settings in Resource Guru, where you can choose which events to import from your calendar. When you are happy with your selection, click Done to complete the integration.
Voilà! You’ll now see your events from Google Calendar appear alongside your bookings in Resource Guru, and vice versa.
Imported events will be displayed with a red dot if the person is busy or a green dot if the person remains available. If you have imported public holidays whilst syncing your calendar, these events will generally indicate that you are still available.
