Google Calendar integration

How to add Google Calendar to Status Hero and display both completed and upcoming events alongside your check-ins

Once you connect your Google Calendar to your personal settings in Status Hero, you and the team will be able to see both completed and upcoming events alongside your check-ins.

You'll also see the events in the Recent activity section when checking in, which will help you answer the check-in questions.

The total time spent in meetings will be calculated as well, giving you and your teammates a quick way to see how much time is spent in meetings by each person, as well as the team as a whole.

The total team time in meetings can be seen at the bottom left-hand corner of the dashboard. 

To connect Google Calendar, visit your Preferences - Connections section and click on the "Connect Google Calendar" option. You'll be prompted to pick your Google account and authorize Status Hero to read your calendars and calendar events.

After that, you can select which calendars you'd like to monitor. The sync is not retroactive, so the first events will be visible in your next check-in. (If it's after your check-in time for the day, that will be your draft check-in.)

Event privacy and visibility

Status Hero can only monitor calendars you own, and will only sync events that are visible to others in the calendars you select. If you mark an event as "private", it will simply display the event title as "Busy" in Status Hero.

To hide certain events from displaying with your check-in, expand the Google calendar section and click the "hide" option when checking in:
