Publishing events to Google Calendar
To turn on Google Calendar publishing:
- Open the Preferences window.
- Go to the “External Programs” section.
- Tick the “Publish to Google Calendar” checkbox. You’ll be asked to authenticate with Google, so do that.
Once you’ve given Light Blue access to your Google Calendar account, you’ll be asked to choose whether you want to publish Light Blue’s events to a new calendar, or to an existing calendar. If you’re setting up Google Calendar publishing for the first time, you should use the “Create New Calendar” option because it’s important that only events from Light Blue appear in this calendar.
When you click the “Publish” button, Light Blue will send all of your recent and future enquiries and bookings to your new “Light Blue” calendar in Google Calendar.
It’s important to note that Light Blue’s Google Calendar publishing feature is one-way only, so Light Blue remains the sole source for your information. Any changes that you make in Google Calendar won’t be pulled back into Light Blue.
