Is it possible to sync customer bookings on our website to our Google Calendar?
I’ve gone through the documentation and am still not clear on if this is possible.
Any help would be much appreciated.February 20, 2019 at 8:49 am #774730
Yes, you can go to Google Calendar find Add Calendar box and click on 3 dots next to it to add calendar from URL.

Hey thanks for getting back to me.
I added the calendar’s URL to Google Calendar like you suggested, but when that accommodation is booked, the Google Calendar isn’t updated with the new booking.
I’m using the export URL for the accommodation. Is that what I should be using?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!March 4, 2019 at 8:53 pm #779402
Another note: Using the accommodation’s Export URL, Google Calendar shows all past bookings, but new bookings aren’t added to the calendar.
I’m really hoping there is a way to make it automatically add new bookings.
Thanks again!March 6, 2019 at 8:49 am #779935
Thank you for your question. It looks like it may take from 12 to 48 hours for Goggle Calendar to update the changes from iCal URL. Could you check your calendar now? Are there new bookings imported?

It looks like you are correct about that. It took about a day for the event to sync with Google Calendar. Thanks for the info!May 31, 2019 at 11:30 am #811002
Does anyone know how the cron is fired for this.
I can see it’s designed to run daily, but it’s not in WordPress’s cron list.June 5, 2019 at 10:01 am #812668
Hi Mark, Could you clarify your issue more detailed?June 5, 2019 at 10:08 am #812673
Sorry, I should have been clearer.
My calendar isn’t syncing with Google. I’m not sure there is a daily cron job (script) running which will update the external calendar. I’m trying to run it manually, but can’t find the command to run.

Ical is an independent process. It is not possible to create a cron job within our plugin that will force Google Calendar to download bookings from our plugin. Google Calendar has its own schedule and decides when to download the bookings. Just make sure that you imported our ical links into your google calendar and that the links are accessible (e.g. no maintenance mode on the website). If Google Calendar still does not download the bookings, then, please, create a support ticket for further assistance.June 5, 2019 at 3:56 pm #812799
Thank you for your help 🙂
