Google Integration

Overview

Core allows you to integrate with Google Calendar by connecting your Google account with Core. After you have connected to your Google account from the Integrations screen, you can view your synced Google calendars in Core. The list of calendars in Core matches what you have in your Google Calendar.

In Core Calendar, you can see your synced Google calendar events and also be able to create new events. Any events you create in Core and designate to one of your Google calendars syncs back to it. If you sign into your Google Calendar, you can see all the events created in Core that are designated to your Google Calendar. Any edits to the Google events from the Google Calendar are reflected in Core and vice versa. Core works with event attachments as well. If you add attachments to events in Core, they are uploaded to Google Drive and, similarly, Core needs to download attachments attached to events in Google Calendar from there. You can show/hide specific Google Calendars from within the Core Calendar screen and also manually sync your calendars to ensure you have the latest event data. Additionally, you can create time entries from your Google Calendar events. Click to watch this video on integrating with Google Calendar.
