Tip of the Week for 8/31
Tip of the Week – BAS Calendar Sync
Want to sync your Google Calendar with your showing appointments in BookAShowing? Once you have it set up in BookAShowing settings — which takes just a few clicks/taps, you will have all of your appointments in one place and a Google Maps route each appointment. You won’t get lost trying to find a listing appointment again!
Google – Go to your “Settings” tab in BookAShowing. Click the “Sync Calendar” box/mark. Copy the link. Now open your Google Calendar. On the left you will see “My Calendars” and “Other Calendars” — click the “Add” button. Select “Add by URL”. Paste the URL you copied in there. Save your settings. Your Google Calendar is now synced. This also works for Outlook, Apple iCal and Mozilla Sunbird.
Mobile – Login (northstar.bookashowing.com) and click on Calendar. There will be a “Subscribe (ICS)” link at the bottom. Click it and save your settings. Your Google Calendar is now synced with your appointments in BookAShowing.
**Note** You may not see an appointment sync to your calendar for a few minutes or even a few hours as Google controls on its end when they feed appointment updates to Google Calendars. Only appointments for buyer’s agents can be synced to a calendar — including any upcoming appointments. Past appointments will be removed after a couple days.
