What is Google Calendar Integration?

Google Calendar Integration allows you to sync your MeisterTask tasks and deadlines with Google Calendar. Synced Tasks will then appear on your Calendar as events on their specified deadlines. Changes made in MeisterTask will be immediately synced with your Calendar.

Important

Most changes made to Google Calendar Events will NOT be synced back to MeisterTask. You can change the the task name and due date in Google Calendar, but creating or deleting a task in your Calendar will NOT affect your MeisterTask projects.


 

Enable Google Calendar Integration

You can enable Google Calendar Integration from the Integrations section of the accounts page.

 

  1. Click your Avatar in the top-right corner of your screen.
  2. Select Account from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select Integrations from the menu bar on the left side of the accounts page.
  4. Scroll down to Google Calendar and click +Add.
  5. Click Authorize Google Calendar and follow the instructions within your Google account to complete the authorization process.

Choose Which Tasks and Projects to Synchronize

Once Google Calendar Integration has been enabled, you can select which tasks and projects you'd like to sync with your Calendar by adding "Configurations."

 

Configurations

Configurations set certain tasks or projects to be synchronized with Google Calendar. A configuration can:

 

  • Sync your calendar with all tasks in a specific project
  • Sync your calendar with all tasks assigned to you in a specific project
  • Sync your calendar to all tasks assigned to you in all projects

 

You can create a configuration directly from the Google Calendar Integrations page:

 

  1. Navigate to the Google Calendar Integrations page (see above) and select "Add Configuration."

  3. Once you've finished, select Add Configuration.

Alternatively, you can visit Zapier and create your own Zaps from scratch, using whatever triggers, actions and filters you want:
