Google Calendar Integration 

Application managers, Site managers, and End users can add a Google Calendar tile in addition to the existing Events tile on the Home and Site dashboard. Integrate your Google Calendar to display its events, and click on an event to open its details in Google Calendar directly.

 

Integrating and connecting

Note, the App manager for your org must first connect Google Calendar at the application level. To do so:

Go Manage application > Integrations > Calendar integration. Click Sign in with Google.

  • If Google Drive integration is already enabled, the domain for Google Calendar should match the domain used for Drive. 

To connect Google Calendar at the user level, navigate to your user profile and select Edit profile & settings > External apps > Google Calendar > Sign in with Google.

  • The domain should match with the domain used under Manage application.

Adding events

Google Calendar tiles can now be added to Home or Site dashboards. Going to Add Tile (the + icon at the bottom of the screen) > Add content tile (Add pages, events, albums & blog post tiles) > Events will now allow you to add events from a linked Google Calendar. You can only add events from Google Calendar that you have access to. The calendar dropdown can display a maximum of 250 events for you to choose from.

This is how Google Calendar events appear in the Events tile:

Note

If the Simpplr Home dashboard is user-controlled, users will have the ability to add events linked from Google Calendar to their dashboards. Also, if Content type = Events are turned off at the app level, users won't be able to add or see the Google Calendar event tile on their dashboards.

 

Events Screen

The Profile > Events screen is divided into 2 tabs:

  • Simpplr Events

    • No change in the existing implementation

  • Google Calendar Events

    • Display logged in user’s Google events only when the user is connected to Google Calendar

      • If the user is not connected, display the message

        • You must connect your account to view your Google Calendar events in <Org Name> <Sign in with Google>

    • Events are divided under This Week, Next Week, This month, Later
