I would like to see true two way sync with google calendar where if you delete something in google calendar it deletes it in Bookly and vice versa. I work for an allergy and clinic and this would be really helpful for us when we schedule allergy shots.

    Yes, this very the missing point for me too.

    We take outdoor sport reservations on the website and sync with our google calendar to handle it on every device (smartphone , tablet and PC of all the staff).

    If we change something on the google calendar it doesn't change on bookly saddly...

     

    Thanks or this !!!

    Are you guys sure this is not impemented? 'Cause I found this in the admin demo:

    2 way sync

    By default Bookly pushes new appointments and any further changes to Google Calendar. If you enable this option then Bookly will fetch events from Google Calendar and remove corresponding time slots before displaying the second step of the booking form (this may lead to a delay when users click Next at the first step)

    Yes this is confirmed by the Support team that the feature is not implemented. So I challenge that why this is called "2-ways sync".

    So, I would like to be able to change the date/time of appointments made on bookly using my google calendar. I have instructors who are not too WP web savvy, but are killer good at google calendar!

    It’s currently  a bit more like a 1.5-way sync as any items added via, or edited in, Google Cal don’t show up in the plugin / Wordpress. This makes management of any appointments more complex than it needs to be as you have to work from Google Cal to make sure you get an up to date & accurate list of all appointments, and not from the plugin or Wordpress dashboard.

    This is a huge +1 for me.

    I really need this feature to be able to use the plugin, otherwise unsable in my application!

    Waiting forward for the support to develop it soon...

    Thanks!!!

    Certainly the last and most important thing missing to this plugin!

    I really like your plugin, the form and setup is really smooth and professional looking.  I do think that there should be a regular import from google calendar, my thoughts would be every 15 minutes or so (maybe allow a setting to change the sync).  I would do this as compared to fetching items from google at the time of request.  This way all you would have to do is a database query locally and as such greatly speedup the process.

    I agree. I ran into an issue today where my client wanted to provide customers with the ability to book live today for reservations 3 weeks out. I tried adding an event in Google calendar to see if it would sync with Bookly in Wordpress and block out all reservations and sadly the sync does not work. I look forward to seeing this feature implemented soon.
