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 company Google calendar.
  • Sync statuses to your personal calendar: Syncing statuses to a shared company calendar also syncs Out of Office statuses to each employee's personal calendar.
  • Create Team calendars: If your organization is larger, this is a great way to avoid calendar clutter. Type the name of a Team or Location in Pingboard into the Team Calendars section to create a new Google Calendar where members of that Team or Location can view their statuses.

Within Google Calendar, status events mark a person as "busy" except for Remote.

TIP Team calendars are searchable in Google Calendar, but only members of Teams in Pingboard are added to the Team's Google Calendar.
