2. Click Google Calendar Sync.

4. Select which Google Calendar or Calendars you wish to sync with Salesforce and which way you wish the Sync to run.   Either Ebsta can sync Events from your Google Calendar(s) to your Salesforce Calendar or sync Events from your Salesforce Calendar to your Google Calendar(s).  Or a third option is for Ebsta to sync Events both ways.  When you are happy with your selection, click Preview Settings.
