If you add an appointment to your Better Clinics calendar, and have your Google Calendar account connected, we will automatically sync all your appointments to a calendar in Google labeled 'Better Clinics'.
We will send across the time, duration and date of the appointment. We will also add your location, business name and clients (just so you know Google calls clients 'Attendees'). Attendee data includes client name/s, emails and their phone number. The great news is that this sync is 2 way. So if you update the appointment time, date, add/edit or delete clients we'll update these appointments in Better Clinics.
Depending on your Google calendar settings, Google Calendar will also send your client a meeting invite so they can save it to their calendar - if you edit the appointment at any time an updated invite will be automatically sent to them. For any Google Calendar notifications these need to be managed in your Google Calendar account directly (as they are not sent from our Better Clinics application).
If you have reminders switched on in your Google Cal settings, you will also get a reminder of your up-coming appointment with your client - sent straight to your inbox.
Just so you know: as we need certain information to create appointments in Better Clinics and you won't be able to create new appointments in Google, to then sync to Better Clinics - they must first be created in Better Clinics.
