You might already be using TimeHero to schedule all of your events, but if you aren’t you can connect the calendars you are using to TimeHero. TimeHero connects with tools you already use like Google Calendar, G Suite, Outlook, Microsoft Exchange, and Office making it easier to schedule your work around your events and meetings. Connect your calendars and TimeHero will automatically pull in all of your events from these calendars so you can see all of your tasks and events in one place.
In your calendar view, you click Connect Account in the right sidebar. Select the calendar you want to connect and then the account you want to sync. In a few minutes, all of your events from that calendar will be pulled into TimeHero.
Syncing TimeHero events with another calendar:
If you are creating events in TimeHero but you want to view them in one of your other calendar tools, all you have to do is sync that TimeHero event with an external account. Open the event details, and click Sync to external account. From here you will see a drop down of the calendars you have connected. Select the external calendar you want this TimeHero event to sync to and you will see it show up in that calendar. Easy peasy!
Locking and unlocking events:
Once your calendars are connected, you can determine which events you can work during and which ones you need locked so tasks don’t schedule. You can select an entire calendar to be locked or unlocked or you can unlock/lock individual events. This is especially handy if you are out of the office for a day. Create a full day event in your external calendar, make sure it is synced in TimeHero and then lock that all day event. TimeHero will automatically block off your work hours for that day so no tasks will schedule!
If you work with a team and you want to bring your team's calendar into TimeHero there may be events that you aren’t attending but need to be aware of. These events can be unlocked in TimeHero and tasks will schedule through the event. Attending a meeting or taking a lunch break? Those events will be locked and tasks will schedule around them.
