2-way Google Calendar sync
Setting base availability within the extension is a good start, but many of us schedule our time using Google Calendar (for both personal and professional time commitments) so Bookings isn't an option unless it can limit availability based on real-time openings.
For the same reason, it's important that new appointments are also saved to Google Calendar. Thanks to their API and ubiquity, most scheduling and calendar-extension-type apps play with Google Calendar, so it serves as a central clearing house for all things scheduling; it needs to be current.
I'm not going into a lot of detail here, but several folks have provided more information and use cases:
Where are we at on this VITAL Functionality!?
Dear Team Woocomerce, this is a must feature that is you don't do it soon other will do it sooner for wordpress users.. as a business opinion you are missing here large sales.. I am from the Caribbean region where we as website developers can sale your solution to literally half of the local business in each the Island... specially if you sync with ical that can sync with viator ( from TripAdvisor) and other booking vendors.. keep me posted if you have this option here and you can contact me if needed.
Also, we must be able to add as mush Ical link per property a we need
Hi, in this business it's used widely. Without Ical 2-way Calendar sync this beautifull software is useless for us. We do try to book everywhere we can. Places like Airbnb uses Ical links.
Hope you guys can make it soon,
I would love to see two way sync integration. thank you for your time.
Idea was shared from 2014, planned on Nov 2017, so when will it done? If you have this feature, I will buy your extension immediately!
I want to buy this extension.
I need it and I think it's also necessary for other people, option such as channel manager.
We are dealing with a private smile reservation. We have over 30 units and all of our units are posted on various sales channels like booking.com airbnb and others. All of our calendars are synchronized in real time. If a guest book at booking.com, the date is automatically closed on airbnb and other sales channels.
Whether this option exists in your extension i do not think google calendar synchronization?
Booking or Airbnb allows you to have a link (exempl LINK : https://hr.airbnb.com/calendar/ical/18310491.ics?s=3f13bbed781e864b9d0a8215037c5907 that is only added to the caleder and performed a bidirectional synchronization date.
IS this possibel.
I think that all those who are trying to equip your web page with the hotel apartments and other accommodation to advertise on some of the channels, such as booking.com or airbnb.com.
Would not it be logical to have a synchronization with one of these channels?
You know for yourself that the sale takes place in real time and such an option would be very useful to all of us. As you have this option, I immediately buy your upgrade
Yes, need this please!!

We need this ASAP.
When will this happen?
we need this soon
Does this allow calendar sync with major booking sites like booking.com and airbnb?
Marko Jezernik commented
This is an absolute must have. Currently we're working on a project that requires us to integrate on a POS system. Booking resources needs to go both ways in order for this to work properly. Especially since you can't use Woo webhooks to output resources booked.
The only other choice that remains is using Google Calendar which doesn't sync resources both ways.
What about this? it´s a essential feature.
Could you not do 2 way sync the way Birchpress does?

I know it not allowed here, but I found out extension which works with WooCommerce Bookings to Sync it to 2 way with Google Calendar.
Goto Google and search this "WooCommerce Bookings Google Calendar Sync" its plugin available at codecanyon.
