Hi Andrea,

it’s working by using WordPress cron feature. It’s Executing sync in regular intervals (5, 10 or 15) minutes depending what was selected. For stable sync process you can hook WordPress cron to your system task scheduler (every web site hosting should have that).

Regarding sync back from Google Calendar you can do like sync with multiple calendars for example have different calendar for each service or location or employee etc. 🙂 It’s really flexible.

Best regards,
Nikola

Hi Nikola, thanks for quick reply!

I never heard about WP cron feature. Can you explain a bit more about this feature please, how can i configure?

Regarding sync from Google calendar I have just 1 service and 1 employee, so 1 calendar sholud be fine i guess.

Another question is about translation, how can i translate your plugin in Italian?
BEst regards

Thankyou again

Hi Andrea, that part can’t be translated. For now you can change the date/time format to have only numbers. Translation of that part will be added soon.

Great suggestion, for me it’s fine with only numbers 🙂

Hi Andrea,
regarding Google Calendar sync you have simple sync with only 1 service and 1 employee. WordPress cron is part of every WordPress site. It’s just a simple system of scheduling and task execution. For example your site check if there are any updates in regular time intervals. Same thing goes for EasyAppointments and Google Calendar sync. 🙂

Thankyou Nikola,

I bought your plugin, I’ve configured google calendar API.
When I make an appointment from the frontend I sync instantly with google calendar, but vice versa when I enter an appointment from google calendar does not update Easy Appointments.

How do I place an appointment with Google Calendar and sync it to your plugin?
Best regards

Hi Andrea,
thanks for getting back with good news. If you have any other issue feel free to open a new topic. 🙂 One more thing make sure that you have connected the WordPress cron on your site with system scheduler on your hosting. In that way you can be sure of sync time intervals.
Best regards.
