Board calendar integration

Hi @Julia-monday.com !
Monday.com previously provided us with the capability to generate a new calendar from the date column of a board. This in turn allowed our team to view shareable google calendars that were dedicated to various projects. Apparently, this feature is dissolving and transitioning more into a google calendar integration. The only problem with using this new google calendar integration is that the events now populate into our individual calendars (since we don’t have an alternative spare email to use) rather than a generic new calendar. Two suggestions:

  1. Allow the google calendar integration to not require a sign in to anyones’ specific calendar. Rather, provide the option to create a new shareable calendar.
  2. Allow the setup of the integration to include data from a ‘link’ column in the description or the title of the event

I can’t emphasize how helpful this would be to managing multiple projects with time sensitive deadlines without the deadlines having to appear in only individuals calendar.

Thanks!

Hi @monday-team is this a feature that might be able to come back

hi @Matias.Monday any chance you can offer advice as to how to get this feature request noticed? thanks!

Hello there @mondayfunday!

This is something a little out of my scope but I will share the post with the right person :slightly_smiling_face:

thank you @Matias.Monday !

Hey @Matias.Monday. Any updates on who the right person might be?

Many thanks,
Yvette

Yes, PLEASE add this feature! It’s impossible to link/sync to a personal calendar for team use. Please allow the feature to sync to a certain, selected calendar within the Google account.

@Matias.Monday any suggestions on the best person to speak to

Hello again @mondayfunday!

I have shared this with the team when you opened the topic.

Feature requests are prioritzed using criteria like scope, effort and others. There is no way to push it other than upvoting it here in the topic.

Cheers,

I want to support this!! We are having issues with getting google cal events via automation onto our team calendar. Right now, I’m playing with adding the team calendar as an “attendee” in the automation, which I think might work as a stop-gap.

@Cailin88 are you looking for a way just it see the cal events on a board or a two way sync?

Hi @Nir-Jetpack – either would work, but a two-way sync would be best. I did find a workaround for this issue.

  • retrieve the automatically-generated email for the shared google calendar (it’s sort of hidden in google, but you can find it by going into an existing event in gcal, adding the shared cal, and then double clicking on it to get the email (see the gif below).

finding shared cal email

  • add the email into a dropdown column in the table
  • add that column as the “attendee” in the google cal automation

The auomatically generated event will still appear in the individual user’s google calendar, but will also now appear in the shared google calendar.

Hi all, I would really love to be able to sync a board dates to a shared outlook calendar that can then be shared with my organization. Is this also not possible? Also, when I sync the dates, I would like the dates to be able to show on the calendar as an all day event. Right now it’s blocking my whole day rather than just showing as a reminder. This integeration is useless right now with these missing features. Is it possible to priotize these calendar integration requests?
