Connecting Google Calendar to Tradify allows you to view external events directly in the Scheduler. By connecting staff calendars, you’ll also be able to check your employees' availability based on their individual appointments. Privacy settings allow you to specify the level of detail that Tradify pulls through, so appointments can just show as ‘Busy’, rather than ‘Out Fishing’.

Schedule jobs with more confidence than ever and save time by avoiding calendar clashes. Let’s get started with Tradify's calendar management.
