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:
Will be buying Bookings as soon as this becomes a feature
Yes please! This would be a great feature! We want to use Google Calendar along with Bookings /sync thanks!
Any Idea of the release date?
I am waiting for this update and my client wont purchase this without it. Could I have an indication of when this might be developed by?
Yes - same here - it says "planned" but that was in Nov 2017. Could we get an update pls?

This is definitely needed.

We only really need to start in the right direction. Adding a 2 way sync so that that time slot is booked off when someone sends a meeting request or if you yourself want to block off the time.
It doesn't sync so we have to go in to 2 calendars every time. Like seriously waste of time.

We really need this integrated. Why wouldn't this be a priority? I bought the plug-in without checking this and here we are asking should I pay for another plug-in or should I wait. It's vital for business.
There is a plug-in on theme forest ? But how many plugs should I have on my system and why should I pay an extra 70 USD for this?
I switched everything over to you guys so I can have everything integrated with woocommerce. I have dropped too much money on all your plugins. Really dissapointed.
I agree... This feature is vital as most all other booking plugins already have this feature integrated into their product
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!!
