Add to "Google" Calendar

I like the "Add to Calendar" feature when creating a Ticket, but would be really nice if there were a direct connection to a shared Google Calendar that automatically added it.

That's the same thing i've been waiting for! Will be great do that with our Google Apps calendar. Is it possible already?

I'm weighing in on this one too, if I could use google apps calendar - my life would be complete.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the feedback and sorry about the delay.  Just in case you haven't tried this, you can actually embedded google calendar onto your forum topic.  Would it be something that you guys find useful?

Hey Amy, Can you please provide more detail about how to setup the embedded google calendar onto your forum topic? -c

Please add another.  This is the only feature that made me pause on using zendesk for my consultancy.  The ability to add (or even better, auto push/sync) dates to a calendar (or multiple calendars based on agent) would be a huge sell.

Yes can you please explain how to do this?

+1 here too. @Amy: I think the consensus here is the other way around, e.g.: pushing Zendesk Due Dates out to a Google Calendar, to provide a consolidated view and visibility to other people at a high level. Great for mobile devices too, so it's always nagging.

Look here how to get code to paste:


If you'll get this use Custom HTML widget to embed calendar to zendesk.

Hope this helps :)

Wondering if there is any update or interest in this one?

We would like to be able to assign a date to a ticket and have it update Google Calendar with ticket details.

We don't just want to view a google calendar within zendesk.

I'm 100% with Mcdent on this. We heavily rely on Google Apps for everything else. Zendesk is the only app we're using which is not integrated and this is really problematic. All our agents would gain in efficiency by being able to see their deadline in their own Google calendar (which are then sync'd with their phones, ipads, etc.)

Would love integration with Google.  We just moved to Google Apps and the more seamless things are the better.  Thanks.

I have this working currently however it is quite clunky... this is a huge thing to me! opening a ticket and scheduling follow up that reminds me on my phone is a lifesaver

Ok so I think this is a related issue. 

I currently use zendesk and google apps like most of you.  Does anyone know of a feature that allows clients to schedule an appointment within zendesk without having to go to an external site? 

So instead of saying: "I will be available at 9-11am; 1-3pm; 5-7pm" there can be something embedded that shows your calendar/availability and allows clients to select times which they can book you.  Once selected it auto updated your google calendar. 

I know that this is asking a lot but like most things online.. it can be out there but just hard to find.  If something like this is not developed I encourage zendesk to attempt to do an integration like this because seriously it would make you stupid rich!

We are using a combination of targets, triggers, php, & MyEventBot to send task due dates to our google apps calenders. That may sound complicated, but it's actually pretty easy. And, once you set it up, it just works.

Here's a link to learn how we did it:

I agree this would be useful, but unfortunately in the short-term we don't have plans to build this integration.

I'm slightly amused how this thread has been open since Sept 2009 and then in June 2012 Ben says it would be useful but don't have any plans in the short term. :) Jenifer then closes a much more useful (lots of comments, better original post) forum topic and direct people here?
