About Google Calendar
Google Calendar is a time-management and scheduling tool which allows you to organise your schedule and share events with family and friends. With Google’s free online calendar, it’s easy to create and edit events. Reminders can be enabled for events with options available for type and time. Event locations can also be added and linked with Google Maps and other users can be invited to events.
Set up Google calendar using your Google account
Log in with your Google account
Head to My Account, then Integrations and click Connect under Google Calendar.
Sign in with Google and give permission for Splose to access your calendar by clicking allow.
Then click Allow again to confirm your choices.
Select calendars to display
Once your Google account is connected to Splose, select the calendars whose events you would like to bring into Splose and the date range of events you would like to initially sync. Keep in mind that any calendar that is displayed in Splose will block out your availability in online bookings.
📝 Note: Your previous appointments will not be synced to Google Calendar. Only new appointments created in Splose will be synced to Google Calendar.

Click on an appointment to see the "View in Google" button, which allows you to open up the appointment directly in your Google Calendar.

Your Google events will be displayed in Splose as the default blue appointment colour and the appointment details modal title will say Google event.

- View in Google button
Keep client details private when syncing to Google Calendar

Show and hide Google events on your Splose calendar
You can choose to show or hide Google events by default by clicking G your keyboard to Show or hide Google events. You can also click F on your keyboard for Filters and toggling the Show or hide Google events.
