Sync Out of Office Statuses to Google Calendar

Pingboard can automatically sync Out of Office statuses to your organization's Google Calendar, so you only have to enter events in one place and can still see the full details in Pingboard.

Out of Office statuses can be synced to Google Calendar several ways. Sync options are found by clicking Add-Ons > Manage > Google Apps. Once your options are set, statuses are synced from Pingboard to Google. Note: Google Calendar events are not synced to Pingboard.

  • Sync statuses for your entire company: Turn on "Create Google Calendar for status updates" to sync statuses onto a shared Google calendar accessible by your entire company.
  • Create 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.
