Combine Your Calendars, Stay on Top of Your Schedule

Setmore offers you this easy way to sync your personal Google calendar to your professional appointment calendar. Once activated, any events that are imported to your Setmore calendar will block out your availability for customer appointments. This prevents accidental double-booking and scheduling conflicts, and makes sure that you’re always kept aware of your next engagement.

One Way or Two Way Calendar Sync

Choose between a one-way calendar sync (from Setmore to Google) with your basic Setmore account, or upgrade to Setmore Premium to gain access to the two-way sync. One-way sync will export all of your Setmore appointments to Google Calendar. Two-way sync exports Setmore appointments to Google, but also imports all your Google events into Setmore. Watch the video below for a quick rundown of two-way sync:

Deploy These Calendar Hacks Using Google Two-Way

Do your staff members share a common room or workspace? By syncing two or more staff profiles to the same Google calendar, an appointment booked on one calendar will block availability on the others. This is ideal if you can only have one customer in the room or chair at a time, and staff members need to trade off.

Want a more visual way to show your availability? Google calendar lets you create a public-facing calendar that you can embed on your website (or share via a link). With the Setmore two-way sync in place, you can use this calendar to show your appointment availability in real time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the sync work retroactively for events booked before the sync was activated?
By syncing two or more staff profiles to the same Google calendar, an appointment booked on one calendar will block availability on the others. This is ideal if you can only have one customer in the room or chair at a time, and staff members need to trade off.

Do I need Setmore Premium to use the two-way calendar sync with Google?
Yes, the two-way sync with Google Calendar requires a Setmore Premium subscription. Try Premium for 30 days, and if you’re not satisfied with the service, you can request a refund by emailing us at help@setmore.com.

Is there another way to sync appointments to my Google calendar?
