Adding a Google Calendar

We provide a way for you to sync your Google Calendar with your current ChurchTrac Calendar. This will display a Read-Only view of your Google Calendar events on ChurchTrac. In order for your Google Calendar to display on ChurchTrac, you will need to make it public from your online Google settings.

Your Google Calendar cannot be displayed as part of your public ChurchTrac calendar. Your Google events are only displaying within the ChurchTrac application.

Log into your Google calendar account click on the Options for the calendar that you would like to Edit. From there you would select Settings and Sharing.

Now that your Google Calendar is public, you will want to create a calendar within ChurchTrac, linking the two together. It is as simple as creating a new calendar in the Edit Calendars window, but only this time, you will choose Google Calendar instead of Database Calendar.

First you would select the "Create a New Calendar" button on the Edit Calendars screen and then you select Google Calendar as the Calendar type.
