Integration with Google Calendar

Hello,

I have an app in Podio that is synchronized with Google calendar. When I add a new Item to the app (with proper start and end date) it is pushed to the Google calendar. I wanted to ask how the Item in Podio is connected with the event in Google calendar? Is the eventId from Google calendar stored somewhere in Podio Item information? If so, is there an API call that will return that eventId?

Regards,

Our new Podio client is requesting the same - a 2 way Calendar Sync or else a calendars per workspace with either classic or Gantt view.

Hi Pawel,

We don't store any Google event ID on our end - the integration is one-way from Podio to Google. We don't send out a UID in our iCal feeds that you can probably grab on the Google side of things.

Are there plans for two-way sync? It doesn't make sense that we have to manually move all events already in our company's google calendar to the Podio calendar.

Hi Nathan,

We don't have any immediate plans for two-way sync.

All the best,

Andreas

Well I think you should because honestly, something as simple and basic as this not actually happening is leading me to want to look for another platform. Just saying. "All the Best" - Brett

Miguel - Thank you for actually trying to provide a solution. I looked at gqueues.com, but I don't see exactly how it ties the two together. Can you use it in Podio or do you have to use it separately?

I point gqueues as a existing plataform that does this two way sync. They simply create in your behalf a calendar in google calendar. Not the usual calendar subscribe feature.

This question was posted 2 years ago. Would still love to have Google Calendar Sync. Is this being considered now?

k, so have been asking for this about 3 years and are on the process of changing to Zoho CRM, my god what a relief, so much more focus and features than the stripped down database client Podio is. Shame on Citrix laying waste to such a promising company - just look at the lame updates the now skelton crew have to put their names on. RIP an bye-bye

How many times do people have to ask for two way sync with Google Calendar? How many people have to leave Podio because of this one very simple change that Podio refuses to give? 

 

We will be leaving shortly if we don't see a two way sync feature before years end.

@Duffy LOL, never - had been asking for cal sync for 3 years  :D Just switch off this unfocused platform already, we did - super happy and way more effective with native caldav support and Google sync and exchange sync on Zoho.
