Google Calendar Integration

This help center article describes the integration of MeisterTask and Google Calendar, which is a pro and business plan function only. For other calendar integrations, visit this help center article. 

 

With the Google Calendar integration, you can connect MeisterTask with your Google account. Once connected, you can choose which tasks with deadlines you would like to sync to your Google Calendar. You can choose between:

  • All tasks assigned to you, from all projects
  • Tasks assigned to you from a specific project
  • All tasks (independent of the assignee) from a specific project

 

Tasks are immediately synced from MeisterTask to Google Calendar, and  appear as events on the specified deadlines. 

 

Changes in MeisterTask which will update your Google Calendar include:

  • Changing task names
  • Changing due dates
  • Changing task descriptions
  • Creating new tasks
  • Trashing tasks
  • Completing tasks
  • Archiving tasks

 

Changes in Google Calendar which will update your tasks in MeisterTask include:

  • Changing task Names
  • Changing due dates

 

Note: Changes to an event description in Google Calendar will only affect the calendar entry and not the task in MeisterTask. Also, creating or deleting an event in Google Calendar will not create or delete a task in MeisterTask.
