Outlook Calendar synchronization


Introduction

The plans you made on are not restricted to the confines of Ganttic or your desktop computer. You can synchronize your Gantt charts with Outlook Calendar or Google Calendar. 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 Outlook Calendar app.

Must-know about this feature

A new event will appear automatically in Ganttic when you create it in Outlook Calendar. Similarly, a new task will appear automatically in Outlook Calendar when you create it in Ganttic. The same goes for all changes made in events' title, time and date. Compared to Google Calendar synchronization, there are no one-way or two-way or project title and data field sync options. Only events' titles, times and dates are synchronized. Meeting invitations that are added to Outlook as calendar entries are not synchronized.

  1. Click on a resource title
  2. This opens the resource dialog.

  3. Click on the 'Sync' button below the title
  4. Now, you should see the sync options.


  5. Select 'Outlook Calendar'
  6. To start the synchronization, select 'Synchronize to Outlook Calendar'.
  7. Allow Ganttic to access your Outlook Calendar
  8. Do do that, click 'Yes' in the form that pops up.

  9. Select a calendar you want to sync your data to
  10. Click on 'Start sync' once you have made the decision. 

If you want to sync each resource's data to a separate Outlook calendar then create these calendars in Outlook first. This will avoid other persons Outlook calendars' entries to be imported into Ganttic where it will be visible to third-parties. Compared to Google Calendar sync, it's not possible to create a new Outlook calendar on the go. However, it's still possible to view all Outlook calendars' entries in a single view, just as in Google Calendar.
