Sync Out of Office Statuses to Google Calendar

Pingboard can automatically sync Out of Office statuses to your organization's Google Calendar so that you can enter statuses in one app but view them in both.

Sync options are found by clicking Add-Ons > Manage > Google Apps. Once your options are set, statuses are synced one-way from Pingboard to Google.

  • Company calendar: Turn on "Create Google Calendar for status updates" to sync statuses onto a shared Google calendar (Pingboard will automatically create it for you) accessible to your entire company. Once this setting is on, statuses will be synced to the calendar we create for you as well as the status-creator's personal calendar.

  • Additional Group calendars: If your organization is larger, this is a great way to avoid calendar clutter. Type the name of a Group or Location in Pingboard into the Group Calendars section to create a new Google Calendar where members of that Group or Location can view their statuses.

With the exception of "Remote" types, all statuses created in Pingboard will mark their owner as "busy" in Google Calendar.

TIP Group calendars in Pingboard are only visible to people who belong to that Group in Pingboard.
