Sync Google Calendar With Gantt Charts


Introduction

The plans you made on are not restricted to the confines of Ganttic or your desktop computer. You can synchronize the plans you made in Google Calendar to Gantt charts and vice versa. Use this feature to manage your team without making them actually sign in to Ganttic. Keep your staff members updated on the go or make all plans in one place through Google Calendar app.

Must-know about this feature

A new event will appear automatically in Ganttic when you create it in Google Calendar if two-way or Google Calendar > Ganttic direction sync is activated. A new task will appear automatically in Google Calendar when you create it in Ganttic if two-way or Ganttic > Google Calendar direction sync is activated. You can choose the direction of the sync as well as the data you want to bring over for each direction. Sync direction and data options are the following:

If you activate the two-way (Ganttic < > Google Calendar) sync then existing data from Google Calendar will be imported into Ganttic and vice versa. Choosing any of the two one-way options will result in importing existing data from Google Calendar to Ganttic or vice versa. With all sync directions imported existing past data is limited to 1 month. However, this limitation is not applied to future items.

  6. One-way sync is a good idea if you don't want any data coming from Ganttic to Google Calendar. If you are syncing your data with an existing calendar you might want to consider one-way sync since all the exciting events in the calendar will be synced to Ganttic with two-way sync.

    Two-way sync is the one for you if you actually want to do some planning with Google Calendar and create Gantt charts of plans made in GCal. Any changes you make to the plans will be synced to Ganttic for others to see.
