The calendar integration feature is one of our most important ones. It introduces some more visibility and structure to your workflow by allowing your due dates to appear on your own internet-based calendar. Setting this up is easy to do, let's see how we can take our deadlines to the next level. 📆
Available on our 14-day free trial as well as on the Standard, Pro, and Enterprise plans, you can sync your calendar in a few simple steps:
How to set it up?
Click within a cell within the Date Column or hover over the right or left sides of the Timeline bars to see the calendars. Both of the columns will now offer the "sync calendar" option, click on it :)
*Now you can add also the time to a date calendar that something is due! Once you choose an hour, this is where the task will appear in your calendar.
Now you should choose to sync your board to whatever internet-based calendar you're using. You have the option to sync all the items on the board, or only the items that are assigned to you.
If you choose to sync only "My items" you must add a Person Column to the board and assign those items to yourself in order for them to show up in the calendar sync.
Please note that we offer Google Calendar and Outlook as mere options - your preferred calendar will work just as well :)
In order to sync the board with your Google calendar, simply click on the blue button "Sync with Google Calendar", and then select whether you want to sync only your assigned items or all items on the board. A new calendar will be created and you're all set!
If you need to sync the board with your Outlook calendar or iCal (for example), click on "Sync to Outlook or Other Calendar". You'll receive a pop-up with a link to integrate with your calendar, simply click on "Copy"; If your internet-based calendar (which isn't Google Calendar) is your default calendar you'll be able to click "Sync to my default calendar" -
Select "add calendar" and then "From internet", like so:
Paste the copied link into the empty field and click "OK", like so -
