Getting your calendars synced up across all of your iCal and/or Google email accounts can be extremely beneficial for businesses. Trying to manage several calendars on various platforms will cause you to miss crucial appointments and events. To ensure that you never again miss a meeting, follow these easy steps to two-way sync calendars between Google and iCalendars.

Two-Way Sync Google Calendars with iCalendars

  1. Log in to CiraHub. On the Hub & Spoke Setup page, select the Calendars object. Keep in mind that public folders can sync both contacts and calendars (See figure below.)

Adding your iCal URL

  1. Name your iCal Spoke and click CREATE to two-way sync Google Calendars with iCal. You should now see two spokes connected to the Hub on the CiraHub Dashboard. You can add more spokes as required.
