Syncing your Fresha calendar with your personal calendar is a great way of managing the day-to-day responsibilities of running your business alongside your personal schedule, giving you complete visibility of what’s happening on any given day.
You and your team members can now sync your Fresha calendar with personal calendars such as Google calendar, as well as any other salon booking software your clients might use to book an appointment with you.
By syncing your calendars, you and your team members can view and manage all of your work and personal commitments in one place, saving you time that can be better spent on yourself and your clients, and preventing any appointments from being double booked.
Sync Fresha events to an external calendar
Go to My profile and select My Calendar Syncing.
Click on Sync a calendar and choose which calendar you would like to sync.
If you have selected Google calendar, you will be prompted to give Fresha authorisation to access your calendar. Make sure you have checked the tickbox before pressing Continue. If you encounter an error message, go to the previous step, check the tick box to grant Fresha permissions, and try to sync your calendar again.
- If you have selected Other calendars, click on Export your Fresha calendar to copy the calendar URL and add it to your other calendars (click link below for further instructions). Only applications you share this link with will have access to your Fresha calendar.
Once your calendar has been synced, all Fresha calendar events (appointments) seven days prior to syncing and all future events will be synced to your external calendar.
PRO TIP: Fresha events will only show a start time and an end time. Any changes made to a Fresha calendar event, for example, a cancelled or rescheduled appointment, will be reflected in the external calendar.
NOTE: Depending on the external calendar you use, it may take some time for the Fresha events to appear in your external calendar.
PRO TIP: You can easily remove a synced Google calendar from your account by heading to My profile, clicking on the three dots next to My calendar sync, and selecting Unsync. Any new Fresha appointments will no longer be exported to Google calendar after it has been unsynced but will remain on the Fresha calendar.
