Google calendar and FileMaker
Google calendar syncing
You love your FileMaker Database AND your Google Calendar. If only you could get the two to talk to each other! You love the tools for sharing calendars, managing events, handheld customized interface, reminders, gadgets Google offers – wouldn’t it be great if everyone on your staff could be connected this way? Now they can!
Beezwax has been busy working with the tools Google has provided to seamlessly synchronize your calendar information with Google free Calendar service. With FileMaker Server 10 (solution does not require the use of FileMaker Server or any other server software), we can now do that in an automated fashion that requires little or no attention from you.
We also offer the following features:
secure calendar management
You don’t want your users to have to share their calendar information with the world. This feature allows users to keep their private information private!
multiple calendar management within a single calendar
If your staff want to keep their work and personal items separate Google allows you to keep multiple event calendars within each calendar. We can move events to one or more calendars.
hot links that can tie directly to your FileMaker data
Google’s comment feature allows you to link to any web resource. We can create links that are smart to your database, accessing up to the second information not available in the event. This allows you to bypass the need to cram information into the event description field.
import Google calendar events into FileMaker
We don’t just move FileMaker information up to Google, we import Google information into FileMaker as well.
server or manual syncing
Whether you want to let the server take care of everything, or simply update items at will, we’ve got your solution.
tag Google events with FileMaker IDs
We can track events within Google using your own FileMaker based IDs. No limit to the number and types of IDs used.
timezone extraction for remote users
As users location information is updated on Google, FileMaker can become aware and adjust event information appropriately.
full event management
Create, edit or delete any Google item, all within FileMaker!
connect to other Google services
You’ve only begun to connect to Google’s potential! Mail, Blogs, Documents, Maps and of course the Google Search Engine are all fair game.
