10.08.2016 - Edit your Google events directly from Podio calendar!
Today we got a small step closer to two-way sync with google calendar. You can now edit your google events directly from Podio calendar, making it a lot more useful to connect your external business or personal calendar to manage your time.
We hope this helps you manage your calendars better in Podio!
Here a screenshot from my personal calendar with an event "Test event Podio" from Google - all ready to be edited directly from Podio.
If you haven't connected your external calendar to Podio yet, here is a full guide on both export and import.

Hi Sara, this is excellent, but we're having an issue with the sync. Not sure if I can explain this correctly . . but here goes:
Very basically:- We've setup a workflow (using Globiflow), so that when we set an appointment (ie: 24th Aug - 10.00AM), it appears in our Podio Calendar (24th Aug - 10.00AM), and then is pushed to our Google Calendar. This workflow alerts us via email.
We've set Podio to USA - Eastern Time, and have also setup the Google Account (Calendar) to the same timezone.
When the email comes through, the time shown in the email is our local timezone (NZDT) and not EST.
Any idea's why this is happening and how we can make sure it's all sync'd correctly?
When you say it can edit directly from Podio calendar, is it meant to load up Google Calendar when you click on the event inside Podio calendar? I was under impression you can edit within Podio calendar.
Also, when I remove or cancel an event from a Podio app - it doesn't remove the event from the Google Calendar it was sent to. Is that the functionality Podio is looking to work on re 2 way sync as original thread indicated.
New to Podio here :)
After using this feature for a bit, it seems that events we do at Google Calendar do not go to Podio.
It is very nice to have it in one direction, but please keep up the good work!
(Pls let me know if it's possible and I have done something halfway :)
I have found this article, but it does not work like that in my set up. Event from Google do not sync into my calendar here.
OK, so if I change the calendar from one app, that change goes to the google calendar.
If I change the google calendar, that change goes from GC to Podio general calendar, but not to the App.
For people with the same problem...
So, the two-way sync actually exists, but only on the "global" level? The "global" level does not accept new events.
It seems to have a gap between Podio "global" Calendar and the App Calendar.
