You can integrate Bookly with Google Calendar and choose one of three modes of synchronization.
The default configuration of Bookly PRO includes the following synchronization modes:

- Two-way front-end only
Advanced Google Calendar (Add-on) enables you to get a full two-way synchronization between two calendars to keep all your Bookly calendar data and any further schedule updates in sync with Google Calendar. All bookings created or updated in Bookly Calendar will be automatically reflected in the Google Calendar, and vice versa.
1. Purchase, download and activate the Advanced Google Calendar (Add-on) in Plugins.
2. First, follow the instructions in this guide or in Settings > Google Calendar (admin area of your Bookly) to set up the connection between your Google Account and Bookly Calendar.
