Sync Schedule Genie™ to an External Calendar

Sync Schedule Genie™ to an External Calendar

Stay up to date by syncing Schedule Genie™ to an Outlook or Google Calendar.


  1. Schedule Genie™ sends a copy of the appointment data to a connected Outlook or Google calendar. Only one calendar can be connected at a time.
  2. Appointment updates made in the connected calendar are reflected in the platform when real-time updates are turned on.
  3. Connect an external time off calendar to the Availability schedule to remove busy or unavailable time slots from Schedule Genie™.

For removing time slots from Schedule Genie™ by referencing an Availability calendar, review the Availability section. For connecting or syncing an external CRM/ILM calendar, see the Appointment Availability and Location article.
