πŸ€” What Is Two-Way Sync?

Two-way synchronization lets you see your Taskade projects and tasks in Google Calendar, and vice versa! You can use this feature to add events to a shared Google Calendar and let your clients know what you're working on in Taskade.

πŸ’‘ Note: You need to upgrade your Workspace to use two-way sync.

βš™οΈ Enable Two-Way Sync

  1. Click your profile avatar (top-right) and select Settings.

  2. Choose Integrations from the pane on the left ➑ Google Calendar.

  3. Click Connect Calendar and follow the instructions.

    • Click "Allow" when asked to grant Taskade access to your Google Calendar.

πŸ’‘ Note: Taskade creates a managed calendar called "Taskade" in your Google Calendar and populates Tasks and Events from Taskade to Google Calendar through this calendar. The 2 way syncing is between this created calendar in Google Calendar and Taskade’s calendar. Other calendars within Google Calendar will not show up in Taskade’s calendar.
