πŸ“… VOTE here for *Calendar* Integration Prioritization

Hi everyone.

To me, there is one single mission critical functionality missing in Fibery:

It does not have an full fledged, native external calendar provider implementation (Google Calendar/Outlook).

Who else is supporting the pledge to make this a top priority?

  • I require this too, it should be a top priority indeed
  • I would use it, but I don’t see this a top priority
  • I would not mind Fibery to never have Calendar Integration

The Case.
Fibery right now does not even have a consolidated calendar, where I can see all events from all of Fibery. But what is even worse is the fact that there is no way to properly integrate events with an external calendar provider. I tried to get this to work through Zapier, but it is a mess (Update/Delete does not work). Furthermore, due to the nature of the API, I needed to create a new integration for every Type with events I want to have in my Calendar.

I do not consider planning tools that do not integrate with my Google Calendar anymore. This is an omission that makes fibery terribly impractical and I would never recommend switching my team to Fibery from ClickUp, which has an excellent Google Calendar integration.

Thank you Team Fibery for considering my suggestion and thanks everybody here for contributing your votes and comments.

Cheers,
Remo

Hi,

If you are creating multiple tables/types for events, I think you should have all the events in a single type/table and make use of filters and views to extract certain projects or sections. This way it is easier to create reports, set up the app, set up calendars, etc. It should also make it easier for the API. If I am correct, ClickUp is setup the same way. Permission is a little weak in Fibery though currently. But I was told by support that Fibery is also developing entity level permission and should arrive soon.

In the current state, for some permission reason, you might need separate apps. A single calendar for types in multiple apps is available. You just have to press alt when selecting types in the calendar configuration. Be sure the dates are set up in the same way for the entire domain.

Regarding the google calendar integration, it would be cool to have it too. But I would prefer a good notification system inside Fibery more.

IMHO, Fibery should work as well for a team as for every individual contributor. I get nightmares having yet another tool with due dates assigned to me that do not automatically show up where they belong to, in my personal calendar. Everything else requires keeping track of due dates in different apps with different notification systems and different everything. Maybe you have to first experience how much of a difference this makes, I’ve seen it since I started using ClickUp, PomoDoneApp and RescueTime, all of which integrate perfectly with Google Calendar.
