Note: You will need administrator permissions to access most integration configurations.
1-on-1 meetings can sync with Google Calendar, saving managers and employees precious minutes when scheduling 1-on-1 meetings. Any updates you make in Google Calendar will automatically update in 7Geese, and vice versa.
For existing 1-on-1s to sync to Google Calendar when you set up the integration, admins will see an option for 7Geese to migrate all your company's existing 1-on-1s and sync them with Google Calendar automatically. Your employees will receive one notification email from 7Geese telling them that all their existing 1-on-1 meetings have been synced with Google Calendar.
If you do not set up this migration, all your employees 1-on-1s will need to be rescheduled manually by each user from within 7Geese, in order for them to sync with Google Calendar.
Enable the Google Calendar integration
Go to Organization settings > Integrations
Click on Google Calendar and follow the on-screen instructions. You will need to be both an admin in Google and in 7Geese, in order to be able to set up the integration. You can test the connection with Google Calendar before you enable the integration.
Google Calendar users can now also compare calendars with a colleague directly within 7Geese, when scheduling a new 1-on-1.
To make this visible across your company, Admins need to go to:
Organization settings > General and ensure the 'Email and calendar provider' is set to 'Google.'
Note: this does not provide any two-way sync with your Google Calendar. With 'Compare Calendar' for Google enabled, 7Geese loads a calendar page from Googles servers, with your calendar and displays this when you are scheduling a 1-on-1. (in more technical language, it's iframe in 7Geese that is pointed at your Google Calendar UI)
The 'compare calendar' UI only appears if your browser is also logged in to your Google account.
Users will then be able to compare their calendar with a colleague's calendar when scheduling a new 1-on-1.
