Calendar Integration FAQ

Why should I connect my external calendar?
This connection will ensure that times you book outside of LaunchSpot will show up as busy inside LaunchSpot (so you don't get conflicting requests).

What does LaunchSpot see in my calendar?
We only look at your busy times and we do not look at any other information.  Your privacy and trust is important to us.

What Calendars are supported?
Google Calendar
Outlook.com Calendar
Office 365 Calendar

I use Apple Calendar (iCal) what can I do?

Google Calendar & Outlook Option:
There are sync tools you can buy - we don't endorse any of them - but that is an option for you.  Just do a google search for sync outlook with google calendar.

Note: While you can do this we do not currently offer troubleshooting or support for this setup.

Can conflicting requests still happen?
Yes - in rare occurrences you may get a conflicting request.  This can only happen in the following circumstance:
1. You use Outlook.com/Office365 and you block off a time in your Outlook.com/Office365 Calendar (via an invite or manually) and someone on LaunchSpot requests a meeting with you in under 1 minute from the time of the change.

Note: We do our best to capture this but there is a limit to how many API call's we can make to Microsoft in a day.
