Build great scheduling features for your Google Calendar users with the Cronofy Calendar API
Real-time and two-way calendar sync
Writing events for the Google Calendar API is easy, but when it comes to calendar sync, that’s only half the story. Synchronization between different calendar services is an important part of connecting an application to a user’s calendar.
The Cronofy Calendar API is designed to serve the needs of applications delivering real-time synchronization.
When an event is created on Google Calendar and sent to someone that doesn’t use Google Calendar, events can be updated independently. This means users may miss out on crucial information.
Cronofy creates one version of an event that syncs between every calendar service. There are no risks of events being updated separately.
Cronofy also differentiates between updates to your events and other events in the calendar, streamlining your application so that it only deals with what it needs to.
Choose which data you want to access
When an application is connected to Google’s Calendar API, it can access everything or nothing. That means that people who don’t want to share details of private appointments either have no choice but to share this information, or they miss out on the many benefits of calendar sync.
We allow developers to create flexible integrations, meaning that if they only need to access users’ free/busy data, that’s all their software will retrieve.
In large organizations this gives employees and employers greater privacy over their schedules. Our Enterprise Connect feature takes this further by automatically connecting every calendar on an organization’s domain and creating just one entry point for all instead of one for each user.
We also allow our customers to choose whether their data is hosted in our US or EU data centers.
Calendar integration made easy
Integrating with multiple calendar services is painful. Even after they’ve been set up, integrations are time-consuming and costly to maintain.
Even if you’re not planning integrations with other calendar services right now, offering the ability future-proofs your company and software.
We currently support every version of Google Calendar and will continue to in the future, meaning that no matter what happens with the Google Calendar API, users’ calendars will always be in sync with your software.
You and your users can use whichever calendar services you like, not just Google Calendar.
