TimeTap Tool Tip: 2-Way Calendar SyncCharlie Bedell
TimeTap has thought of everything when it comes to our 2-Way Calendar Sync tool. There’s never been an easier way to automatically keep your external and online calendars aligned. Learn more about this powerful tool so you never miss a beat!
How It Works
The 2-Way Calendar Sync tool links your external calendars with your TimeTap schedule, allowing you to create, manage, view, and sync appointments between them. This feature goes beyond a basic calendar sync that only syncs your appointments one way with your external calendar. Instead, TimeTap’s advanced functionality allows you to sync your schedules both ways.
When you book an appointment with our software it will automatically sync to your external calendar and display the appointment on that calendar as well. And if you’ve blocked off times in your external calendar, TimeTap will automatically update your availability to block off those times from your online schedule so that your clients can’t book appointments on top of them. All appointment details will be conveyed in the sync, so you don’t have to switch between calendars to get all the information you need.
Your calendars are automatically updated every 15-20 minutes to keep up with your business. This can eliminate your fears of getting double booked! You can feel confident that your calendars are linked and aligned with each other, and that your customers are seeing your most up-to-date availability. You and your team will have the flexibility to create, manage, and view appointments on your work calendar programs and never have to worry if there is a conflict with appointments booked through TimeTap.
Unlike many online schedulers, TimeTap’s 2-Way Calendar Sync tool has no limit on the number of calendars and sub-calendars you can sync with your account. It even lets each staff member on your team sync their own TimeTap accounts with their preferred external calendar. This means your schedule is never cluttered with coworkers’ appointments. You can choose to sync with any of your preferred external calendars, including Google Calendar, iCal, Office 365, Outlook, or Live Exchange.
