Let’s face it, life can get pretty hectic. With all the meetings and events, it’s important to manage your calendar well. So, when you are booking appointments or planning events with SignUpGenius, shouldn’t it be easy to schedule those on your calendar as well? We’re glad you asked!

With our calendar sync feature, you can integrate your online sign up and your calendar program. Anytime someone signs up for a time slot, the meeting or appointment is automatically added to your personal calendar — making it easy to keep all your appointments up-to-date in one place. 

Set Up Calendar Subscriptions

To get started, go to the Tools icon on your account and select the Calendar Subscriptions icon.

You can sync one or multiple sign ups to your calendar program. Once you’ve selected the sign up, you can easily sync it to your calendar program. It’s so easy, you can link the calendar in a matter of a minute or two.

View Appointments and Events in Your Calendar

Once you’ve set up the link, you’ll be able to view the appointments on your calendar program. As more people sign up, the appointments will appear on your personal calendar. You can easily see the name and appointment booking along with a link back to the sign up. This is very helpful if you have multiple sign ups synced to your calendar.

You can set reminders or use your calendar application tools to help you best manage your appointments. Now you don’t have to worry about missing another appointment or double-booking yourself. You can manage all your appointments, including the ones on your sign up, in a single calendar program.

Want to make sure your participants don’t forget to show up for the appointment either? No worries! In addition to the automatic sign up reminders that we generate, we also offer participants an option to add the sign up to their personal calendar as well.
