Setting up Security Groups and User Permissions
To use the Google Calendar integration, each user must have the necessary Permissions in Flex. System administrators can change permissions by Security Group and/or change permissions on the individual user.
To enable permissions on this integration, set the “Can Sync With Google Calendars” permission to Grant.
Connecting to Your Google Account
Navigate to the Google Calendar integration settings:
- On the Main Menu, click Integrations.
- Click Google Calendar.
A new Flex tab will open showing Google Calendar integration settings. In the header, click the Connect Account icon.
A new browser tab will open to connect Flex and your Google Account.
- If you're logged into Google in the same browser, you are ready for the step below.
- If you're not logged into Google, sign in to your Google Account as prompted.
You'll be prompted to allow Flex to access your Google Account. Click Allow.
A message will show confirming the connection. Close the browser tab and return to Flex.
Click OK on the Authenticating to Google Calendar popup.
