We get it. Calendars are essential, serving as a map that is integral for business owners to understand customer routines and properly organize marketing strategies. We also understand though, that the organizing factor of calendars is pretty much taken away if your calendar files are all over the place. It doesn’t have to keep being like this though. You can easily view your calendars on the Bling platform, whether from Google Docs, Google Calendar, or Calendly through these easy steps.
How Can I Link Google Docs/Sheets to My Bling Account?
STEP 1. Access Your Customer List and Click on the Add Calendar Link Tab.
Once logged into your Bling account, click on the Your Customer List tab.
Once there, you can be able to find the Add Calendar Link tab in between the green Add New Contact and purple Download file tabs. Click on that and you will see that you will have a space where you can add a link.
STEP 2. Be Prepared to Copy and Paste Your Google Doc/Sheets Calendar Spreadsheet Onto the Add Calendar Link Tab.
Head on over to the Google Doc Spreadsheet where you have your calendar database. Copy the link to it then go back to your Bling account and paste that link onto the space provided for it in the Add Calendar Link tab. Then, click Add Calendar.
Remember to make sure that your Google Doc/Sheets can be accessed publicly because you won’t be able to access your calendar from your Bling account if it’s in the private setting.
STEP 3. Carry on Blinging.
By this time, you can finally access your Google Doc/Sheets calendar database from your Bling Account.
You can try it out by clicking on a customer from your customer list. Then, click on the Schedule tab found on the right side of your screen. Once you click on that, you can view your calendar database for yourself.
