Syncing Setster with Apple Calendar on Mac

Depending on whether the calendar on your Apple Computer is available online via iCloud or is using a third party service like Google Calendar, the steps here differ.

1. If the calendar is hosted on iCloud and you view it on Apple Calendar.

Import from Apple Calendar to Setster

 
  • Open Apple Calendar
  • Select the iCloud calendar you wish to import to Setster
  • Click the signal icon next to the correct calendar

  • Under Calendar Sharing click on Public Calendar
  • Grab the link shown
  • Login to your Setster account and go to Settings >> Staff
  • Select correct provider and click the Edit button
  • Scroll down to Import Calendar From, select Outlook and paste link within the Calendar URL field.
  • If the link starts with webcal change it to https. So simply replace the word webcal with https.
  • Click Sync Now to complete the import.

 

Export from Setster to Apple Calendar

 
  • Login to your Setster account and go to Settings >> Staff
  • Select correct provider and click the Edit button
  • Scroll down to Export Calendar To, select iCal and copy link within the Calendar URL field. Here you can also optionally check the "Remove canceled appointments from personal calendar" if you wish to have them automatically removed
  • From the Apple Calendar App, click File >> New Calendar Subscription

  • In the window that appears enter the calendar URL that you copied from Setster

  • In the next window name your calendar and select either iCloud from the location field or you can host it on My Mac if you wish to view it only on your Mac.
  • Then make sure to set the Auto Refresh to 5 minutes.

  • Click OK
  • Only future appointments will import into Outlook

 

2. If the calendar is hosted on Google (for example)

If you are using Google and Calendar for Mac here are the steps:

Connect your Google Calendar to iCalendar

  1. On your computer, open Apple Calendar .
  2. In the top left corner of your screen, click Calendar > Preferences.
  3. Click the Accounts tab.
  4. On the left side of the Accounts tab, click +.
  5. Select Google > Continue.
  6. Enter your Gmail address, password, and verification code (if you have one).
  7. Click Accept.
  8. Make sure Calendars is checked as an option to add.
  9. Choose how often you want Apple Calendar and Google Calendar to sync by setting Refresh Calendar to every minute. 

Next,  Connect your Google calendar to Setster

Once you have both connected Google will serve as a connection between Setster and Apple Calendar and your events will be shown on all devices.
