Two-way sync with calendars

Follow

I would like to see a way to more easily manage the importing of external calendars.

Our school manages group calendars outside of Schoology so they can be synced with our website and email server. It would be great to see a 2-way sync available, or the following improvements as well:

  • Ability to periodically re-import a feed without creating duplicate entries.

  • Clear the contents of a group calendar so that it can be updated with new events

  • A list-view with checkboxes for calendar events to delete and later re-load events

    Hello All,

    Thank you for your extreme patience regarding this Feature Idea. I wanted to let you all know that I have escalated this Feature Idea along with all the details regarding upvote totals (most upvoted in the Community), the original date of the post and of course, your collective frustration and excitement for this feature to be added to Schoology.

    Please keep in mind that even seemingly simple feature ideas may be more complex than you might expect, or may wait in line as part of a larger development schedule.

    We appreciate your continued patience while we work to make Schoology even better with help from the community.

    Thank you!

    We really need a way to edit our Schoology calendars from Google calendar with the ability for it to sync with our section calendars. Please!

    As a Google Apps For Education school, we put all of our school events in a Google calendar. I imported the school calendar to Schoology, but it doesn't update when we add/remove things from the Google calendar. Support for a Google calendar subscription URL would be great!

    any update on this?
    I've been shopping around for an online class platform, but I need one that will allow me to import/synch my already existing Google Calendar.

    Still hoping this is on the upcoming features list! We have over 10 school-wide Google calendars that need to be updated regularly. It is time consuming to have a person go in and update each one every time there is a change.

    Hi everyone,

    While a two-way sync isn't currently available, you can now import the same iCal link without creating duplicate events in Schoology!

    Sincerely,
    Julie

    The ability to delete a calendar feed is a must. Any thoughts on this?

    It would be great to have the calendar be dynamic as it is in google cites. It is great that the calendar and dates all come through, but any new events in the google calendar do not show up in the imported calendar in classes. won't use until it is dynamic.. too much work to re-import for every class every time a change is made in the calendar.

    Please add my vote to the list - our students and teachers would benefit from a connection between Google and Schoology calendars.

    Having to maintain multiple calendars, having a two-way sync would be a godsend.

    Students need to be able to sync Schoology calendars to other devices, such as iCal. This allows students to receive instant notifications of events/assignments within Schoology. This lack of calendar sync is unfortunate for both teachers and students who may use other platforms to manage calendars. We are a 1:1 iPad/Mac district and it would be an immense help if students could sync calendars so they received notifcations on their iPads or Macs.

    This is HUGE! I do not quite understand how this has not been implemented yet. The connection between a public google calendar and the calendar in schoology should be seamless. It makes for a lot of additional clicking.

    It'd be so helpful for our students to be able to link their google calendar with the schoology calendar so that when they RSVP to an event, it appears on their google calendar immediately.
