Configuring Google Calendar in Amelia WordPress Booking Plugin
With Google Synchronization all employees in Amelia Plugin can sync their working schedule with their Google Calendar. Each booked appointment will be created in their calendar, and customer added as a participant.
Client ID and Client Secret
Before you can integrate Amelia with Google Calendars, you must create a “Client ID” and “Client Secret”.
Read-only field that you should add to “Authorized redirect URIs” field in process of creating Google project.
Insert Pending Appointments
When this option is enabled, appointments with pending status will be added in employee calendars.
Add Event’s Attendees
Enable this option if you want your employees to see in the event customers that attend the appointment. You can share an event with customers by adding them as attendees. This places the event on their calendar.
Send Event Invitation Email
If enabled, this sends an invitation email to the customers. This option can be enabled, only if Add Event’s Attendees option is turned on.
Remove Google Calendar Busy Slots
This option you can enable if you want to remove the busy slots in Google Calendars of your employees from their working schedule in Amelia. If you enable it time slots from Amelia Calendar will be removed every time when there is an event in the Google Calendar.
Maximum Number Of Events Returned
Here you can set the maximum number of events that will be returned from employees’ Google Calendar into Amelia calendar. These events will not be visible, they will just affect the number of available time slots in the Amelia calendar.
Connect employees with their Google accounts
Once you’ve set everything there is one more thing to set on the employees’ side. Each employee should log in and connect to their Google calendar so this synchronization could work. All they need to do is to open the Employee dialog, click on the button beside the Google Calendar option and they will be redirected to choose their Google Account. Once they have chosen it, they will be back on their profile in Amelia Plugin with selected Google Calendar email (if the account is successfully connected the button should change the color from blue to red).
