We've implemented the ability to sync your Google Calendars with Verbling and vice-versa. You can add your calendars in admin settings. Events in your Google Calendar will be blocked off in your weekly calendar and not available for booking. Your lessons on Verbling will show up in your Google Calendar.
Some important notes:
- You can choose to sync events from your Google Calendar to Verbling, or from Verbling to your Google calendar, or both.
- We sync your calendar 6 months into the future.
- Calendars are synced once an hour or when the status of a lesson changes.
- You cannot reschedule lessons using Google Calendar
To add a calendar using its address, follow these steps:
- Find "Quicklinks" on the left side of your Dashboard.
- Click on "Sync calendar".
- Copy the Verbling calendar link
- Click on "Google Calendar" icon and follow the instructions for adding someone else's calendar with a link
NOTE: It may take up to 8 hours for changes in ICS feeds to reflect in your Google Calendar.
