Sterkla allows you to synchronize with your Google calendar so that events in your Google calendar automatically show these time slots as unavailable to members.

If you do not use Google calendar, you can simply register a free Google calendar account and follow the below instructions to synchronize it with your Microsoft Outlook calendar. This way, what you add to your Outlook calendar will sync to your Google calendar and then with Sterkla.

  1. Register or Log in to your Google Calendar account.

2. In the left column, click My calendars to expand it, hover over the calendar that you want to add to Outlook as an Internet Calendar Subscription. Select the three dots to the right of the calendar name, then select Settings.

Select Settings from your Google calendar.

3. Scroll down to the Integrate Calendar section and right click on Secret address in iCal format and select Copy. 

4. In Outlook, click File > Account Settings > Account Settings.

5. On the Internet Calendars tab, click New.

When you start Outlook, it checks Google Calendar for updates and downloads any changes. If you keep Outlook open, it also periodically checks for and downloads updates. (Google Calendar tells Outlook how often to check for updates.)

Note: Changes you make in Outlook aren’t sent to your Google Calendar. To update your Google calendar, open Google Calendar from a browser.
