Get Started: Google and Salesforce Calendars Sync

1. Open Ebsta Chrome and click the Settings cog icon  Capture.PNG.


2. Click Google Calendar Sync.

Note: Ebsta will redirect to a Setup window.


3. Click Calendar Sync Settings.


Note: If you get a warning message telling you you don't have access to all necessary fields to perform a sync, you'll need to customize the fields in your Salesforce Event Layout.

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

IMPORTANT: If you choose for Ebsta to sync multiple Google Calendars both ways with Salesforce, Ebsta will sync an Event created in Google Calendar X, to Salesforce, and then to Google Calendar Y. If you do not wish for this to occur, we recommend you choose to sync your primary Google Calendar both ways, and then your other Calendars from Google Calendar to Salesforce.

6. The sync process will commence within five minutes of connecting your Google Calendar(s). It will then run an automatic re-sync once every hour.
