Sync your External Calendar (Google Calendar, iCal, Outlook etc.)

You can connect your appointments to an external calendar.  This allows you to view your appointments in other calendars like Google Calendar, iCal, Outlook or any calendar software which allows you to subscribe to an iCalendar.

The external calendar is a one-way sync, so you will be able to see your appointments in your external calendar, you will need to login to SOAP Vault to update your calendar.  The same steps are available on SOAP Vault mobile by starting off with clicking "My Account" in the sidebar menu.

 

Step 1: Enable your external calendar

  1. Login as a Practitioner
  2. Click Settings (gear icon)
  3. Under the Calendar heading, click Sync
  4. From this page, ensure the checkbox for Enable External Calendar is checked.
  5. Once "Enable External Calendar" is checked, you will be generated an external calendar feed URL.

Note: This link should be kept private.  Anyone with this link will be able to see the details of your appointments.  Disabling and re-enabling the External Calendar will generate a new link, the previous link will no-longer work.

 

Step 2: Connecting to your external calendar

Each external calendar program is slightly different.  Please follow the link below for the steps to subscribe to your SOAP Vault calendar.

    Appointments show up on my iOS calendar an hour earlier! Where is the option for me to contact a member of the support team? This system claims to be mobile friendly but that hasn't really been my experience.

    Kati, if the your calendar is off by an hour, you likely have an incorrect timezone set on your computer or within your SOAP Vault account. We're happy to help, just email us at support@soapvault.com.

    I've tried several times to merge my google calendar to my soap calendar.  I have followed the steps and was looking to get all my appointments transferred so I can just use one.  Can you please help me with this issue or does it not merge at all.  

    Thank you for your help

    Teri,

    Google Calendar can have up to a 24-hour delay to retrieve updates.  Our end is instant, but Google Calendar only checks for updates periodically.

    My patients and I cannot access my booking button and intake form from their smart phone when they go to my website. I can only see the buttons when I sign in on my laptop. Also, I have followed the instructions to sync my calendar and it does not work. I need some help....I have already changed my voicemail to tell my patients to book online.

    I haven't synched my google calendar with my soapvault yet. I've been using google calendar for years and not soapvault, will syching the calendars erase my past appointments or only synch everything moving forward?

    Jodie, syncing your calendar will not change or erase any data.  It's simply for viewing your calendar on other devices / programs.

    Do you have plans to create two way sync?

    There are no immediate plans to develop two way sync but we may do it in the future.
