Here is a question we got from one of our readers:
I am right now in the process of installing Outlook 365 software on my new computer. I also use a web version Google Calendar to manage my personal calendar. Wanted to explore the option of using Microsoft Outlook to access both my personal and business calendars on one desktop email application. I would like to ask you if there is a way to view my Google calendar in Outlook and probably keep them in Sync?
Thanks for the question. Sure there is – couple caveats though, as you might typically expect when interfacing / integrating between technologies from different technology companies.
In this post, we would like to cover two main use cases:
So without further ado, let’s get started.
The more trivial integration option is a one direction sync between Outlook and Google Calendar. Outlook becomes the one-stop solution to access your meetings/appointments entries; but you can continue to update your Google Calendar as you see fit, as those will be synced into Outlook.
In this case, changes made in Outlook won’t be reflected in Google Calendar.
Note: Support for Internet Calendars is still not available as of Outlook 2019 for MAC OS X.
Couple of more advanced solutions that you might want to try if you are an advanced user:
Hope it helps!
