Google Calendar

Properties

  1. 2 way sync – If this option enabled then Bookme Pro fetched events from Google calendar and remove corresponding time slots from the “Time” step of the booking. It may lead to a delay in displaying the “Time” step.
    Note that Bookme Pro only fetch Google calendar events for removing booked time slots, it does not use these events for booking.
  2. Limit number of fetched events – If there is a lot of events in Google calendar then you can set a limit for fetched events. This only works when 2 way sync is enabled.
  3. Template for event title – Set the title of the Google calendar events.
    • {service_name} – Name of the service
    • {staff_name} – Name of the staff member
    • {clients_name} – Name of the customer
