Using ScheduleOnce with iCloud Calendar

Any iCloud Calendar user can easily connect to ScheduleOnce. Connecting to iCloud is as simple as entering your username and password. Your calendar information is always kept private and calendar appointments and free/busy patterns are never revealed to Customers.

Connecting and configuring your iCloud Calendar

To connect to your iCloud calendar, go to Setup, open the left sidebar and select Calendar integrations. In the iCloud section, enter your Apple ID and password, and click Connect. 

Note: Apple requires users to use app-specific passwords for all third party applications such as ScheduleOnce. An app-specific password is a single-use password for your Apple ID that lets ScheduleOnce securely access the information you store in your iCloud calendar. This access method enhances your security and privacy, and requires that you turn on Apple two-factor authentication or Apple two-step verification. Learn more about iCloud app-specific passwords

Your iCloud Calendar can easily be managed on your ScheduleOnce Booking pages. For each of your Booking pages, you can select the calendar in which bookings will be created, the calendars from which busy time will be retrieved, and any additional calendars in which you want an event created when a booking is made.
