Searching for Import and share live from Outlook, Google, Apple and other external calendars from a live feed into your schedule

Each resource has the option to show appointments from an external calendar for viewing only. This can allow you to see busy periods for remote staff that use their own calendar software like Google or iCal, view bookings from your company Outlook calendars for various resources, or give you an option to see requests and reservations made in many other calendar tools.

Simply add the iCal link to the resource to see the external appointments directly in your resources schedule. These appointments are only used to highlight booked areas and have no effect on bookings made in Schedule It or any reports created.






Use the steps below to get the iCal URL from the external calendar application being used.

6, Select the url labelled Secret address in iCal format and copy it (Can't see the link? Click here)
6, This is the link to your Google calendar for use in iCalendar applications

If the Secret address in iCal format is missing in your calendar settings it will be because your G Suite Admin needs to enable this option (it is, by default, disabled).
