Syncing calendars can help streamline your schedule and ensure that no appointment or event is missed. With Make.com, syncing different calendar services such as Google Calendar, Outlook, and Apple Calendar is straightforward. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to sync your calendars using Make.com.

Step 1: Create a Make.com Account

If you haven’t already, go to Make.com and sign up for a free account. Follow the on-screen instructions to get started. Once your account is set up, you’re ready to begin the process.

Step 2: Set Up Your First Scenario

Make.com operates on scenarios - automated workflows that connect your apps and services. To create a new scenario, click the ‘Create a new scenario’ button from your dashboard.

Step 3: Select the Calendar Services You Want to Sync

In the new scenario, you'll need to add the calendar services you want to sync. Search for your first calendar service (e.g., "Google Calendar") in the services search bar and select it. Then, click to add another service and select your second calendar (e.g., "Outlook Calendar").

Step 4: Connect Your Calendars

For each calendar service you’ve added, you’ll need to create a connection. Click on the ‘Add’ button to sign in to your calendar account and authorize Make.com to access it. Repeat this process for all the calendars you wish to sync.

Step 5: Choose Your Sync Method

Decide how you want your calendars to sync. Do you want a two-way synchronization, or should one calendar simply mirror the other? Make.com offers different modules for each service, such as "Watch Events," "Create an Event," or "Delete an Event." Arrange these modules in the order that fits your synchronization needs.

Step 6: Set Up Triggers and Actions

Set up triggers for your scenario to determine when the sync should occur. For example, you might set it to trigger whenever a new event is created. Then define the action that should take place in the other calendar, such as creating a corresponding event.

Step 7: Test Your Scenario

Before activating it, test your scenario to make sure it works correctly. Simply click on the ‘Run once’ button to execute the scenario. If it operates as expected, your calendars should now have the same event information.

Step 8: Schedule Your Synchronization

Finally, set how often you want the scenario to run. You can choose from different intervals – every minute, hour, day, or week, depending on your preference and plan limitations. Once set, turn your scenario ‘ON,’ and your calendars will sync automatically according to your chosen schedule.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully set up your calendars to sync using Make.com. Enjoy seamless integration of all your events across different calendar platforms, ensuring you’re always on top of your schedule.
