Google Calendar Sync: How to get started?

Posted on: Tháng Ba 10, 2008

As you all know, it is very easy to synchronize your contacts from your Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook and vice versa. Further, you can also import your address books from Yahoo Mail to your desktop mailing programs but what type of file and format should you use to make it compatible among two or even three email programs? Not all programs are now using the same format and file type.

I just want to share a new program that Google has just launched for FREE called Google Calendar Sync that help you import your calendar from your Google Account such as Gmail into your Microsoft Outlook or vice versa easily.

To begin syncing, follow the steps below:

  1. To download Google Calendar Sync, visit http://dl.google.com/googlecalendarsync/GoogleCalendarSync_Installer.exe
  2. Once a dialog box appears, click “Save File.” The download should open automatically. If it doesn’t, manually open the download from your browser’s download window.
  3. Click “OK” to confirm that you’re aware this is an executable file.
  4. Read through the Google Calendar Sync Terms of Service, and click “I Agree.”
  5. Continue to follow through the Installation Options and click “Install” to finish the set-up process.

Once Google Calendar Sync is installed on your computer, the Google Calendar Sync Settings window will appear:

In the Settings window, enter your email address and password and select the Sync Option you prefer. For more information on each Sync Option, please visit Google Calendar Sync: Options

You’ll also be able to set the time interval for syncing to occur. Please keep in mind that 10 minutes is the minimum time interval allowed.

After the initial set-up, you can access the Google Calendar Sync Settings window again by double-clicking on the calendar icon in your Windows System Tray.

To access the Google Calendar Sync Settings window, just right-click on the calendar icon in your Windows System Tray and select “Options”.

When your events are actively syncing between Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar, you’ll see arrows in the Google Calendar Sync icon:

When events aren’t actively syncing, your calendar icon will look like this:

You have 2 main options to do either 2-ways or one-way to sync and it can help you do instantly without any further steps later on. Thanks Google for offering this great program!
