Synchronize Google Calendar with Odoo - Odoo 12.0

Odoo is perfectly integrated with Google Calendar so that you can see & manage your meetings from both platforms (updates go through both directions).

Setup in Google

  • Go to Google APIs platform to generate Google Calendar API credentials. Log in with your Google account.
  • Go to the API & Services page.
  • Search for Google Calendar API and select it.
  • Enable the API.
  • Select or create an API project to store the credentials if not yet done before. Give it an explicit name (e.g. Odoo Sync).
  • Create credentials.
  • Select Web browser (Javascript) as calling source and User data as kind of data.
  • Then you can create a Client ID. Enter the name of the application (e.g. Odoo Calendar) and the allowed pages on which you will be redirected. The Authorized JavaScript origin is your Odoo's instance URL. The Authorized redirect URI is your Odoo's instance URL followed by '/google_account/authentication'.
  • Go through the Consent Screen step by entering a product name (e.g. Odoo Calendar). Feel free to check the customizations options but this is not mandatory. The Consent Screen will only show up when you enter the Client ID in Odoo for the first time.
  • Finally you are provided with your Client ID. Go to Credentials to get the Client Secret as well. Both of them are required in Odoo.

Setup in Odoo

  • Install the Google Calendar App from the Apps menu or by checking the option in Settings ‣ General Settings.
  • Go to Settings ‣ General Settings and enter your Client ID and Client Secret in Google Calendar option.
  • The setup is now ready. Open your Odoo Calendar and sync with Google. The first time you do it you are redirected to Google to authorize the connection. Once back in Odoo, click the sync button again. You can click it whenever you want to synchronize your calendar.

As of now you no longer have excuses to miss a meeting!
