Auto-Sync events with existing Google/Apple/Microsoft Calendars

Clients already live and work inside their personal calendar apps. Could we give them the ability to auto-sync their public facing website calendars right within these apps (Google, iCal, Outlook)? It would save them the redundancy of having to manually enter events into the Elfsight widget.

To migrate from other calendar app, importing ics file would be super useful.

Hello,

Thanks a lot for adding your idea!

I do see your point and I understand how easy it would be to have an importing option. We’ll try to consider this possibility for our future updates.

Thank you for helping us!

Hello folks!

Thanks for adding the idea and for your comments!

We’re truly sorry that this feature hasn’t been released yet. We totally understand how needed and useful it would be so we do get your frustration.

Although this very feature is not an easy thing to implement, we will do the best we can to speed up the process and release it in one of the nearest updates.

Since everything depends on our developers’ overall load, I’m afraid I’m not able to provide more specific info, I’m really sorry.

We do bear this idea in mind so please, don’t think it’s been neglected.

Thank you so much for your understanding!

Dear folks,

Since we have two similar requests regarding the same functionality, I’m duplicating this update here as well:

We totally understand how needed and wanted this feature is, and I’m so very sorry that it hasn’t been released yet.

Much as we’d love to include it, I’m afraid it appeared to be a somewhat more arduous task than we had expected, and we’re still thinking about the best ways.

We see that this feature has got a lot of votes and you, Elfsight people, really need this option, and we’ll do the best we can to pay a closer attention to this request.

I’ve already been in touch with our Dev Team, and although I’m afraid this feature is unlikely to be released within Q2, we’ll do everything possible to add it to Q3 roadmap.

We’re really sorry that we’re making you wait for so long, and we do have a strong intention to get back to this request as soon as we can.

Thank you so much for your understanding! :pray:t2:

make your event calendar sync properly with calendars - a two way sync, not just one way, as you have it now. all your competitors do this at the same price point. you won’t attact more useres if you don’t make this a feature - and it’s very easy to do.

The ability to synchronize and integrate the events calendar with Google, Microsoft or any other calendar service would be significantly helpful.

Hello @Matthew_Hanly :wave:

I am happy to say that we are working on the Google Calendar integration. You can vote for this feature to keep up on top of the news.

I cannot but agree that Microsoft integration would bring much value as well. This idea will be on our radar!

A huge thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and welcome to Community :wink:

We should be able to import all data from MS Excel or a Microsoft calendar but if it’s too complicated for you then a JSON import shouldn’t be that hard to set up

Hey there @The_Algar :wave:

A huge thank you for sharing your ideas!

Unfortunately, these options aren’t supported in our app now, but we have a similar request in our Wishlist. I’ve moved your request to the dedicated thread, where we’ll keep you posted :slightly_smiling_face:

As for the importing events from the json, it’s quite a tall order as well. However, we have such a request in the Wishlist. You can keep an eye on it here - Simple JSON API for creating and modifying events

Yep. Adding the ability to integrate with google calendar would be very useful!
I want it.

Not so much interested in integrating with MS Outlook–don’t use it anymore–but an absolute “Yes” for integrating with Google Calendar.
