The Google Calendar integration lets you quickly import and add events to your individual schedule in Float. Once you've connected your account, events that are created in your Google Calendar will automatically sync as tasks to your schedule.

Here's how to get started: 

  1. From the global navigation menu at the top of Float, select My profile settings and then Integrations. (Note: Only people who appear on the Schedule can sync with Google Calendar). 
  2. Click Connect and choose the Google account and calendar you want to use. You'll also need to create/select a Float project to add your tasks to.
  3. You can change both the Google Calendar you've connected, as well as the Float project you've associated your calendar events with, from the Integrations tab.

Individual events are imported from two months before the date you sync and three years after. The sync icon at the top of each task makes it clear which ones are synced from Google Calendar.

To stop syncing individual events, open the task menu and click Unsync

To remove your calendar entirely, select "X" within the Integrations tab. You have the option to keep the tasks that have already been created or delete them.

Helpful Notes:

  • Events are imported 8 weeks prior to the current week and 3 years into the future.
  • All day events are not imported.
  • Any changes made to your Google events will be reflected within Float but not vice versa. Consider using iCal if you'd like to share your Float calendar with your Google calendar.
  • Events scheduled overnight in Google (e.g., 10 p.m. - 1 a.m.) will display on the first day within Float with no crossover into the next day.
  • Google Calendar descriptions are imported to the maximum number of characters supported in Float (250). Any additional characters will not display. 
  • Google Calendar event times will be synced to the time zone set in Team Settings. 
  • Recurring events will only be treated as repeating tasks in Float if they occur once every week or once every two weeks. All other recurring events will be imported as individual tasks. 
  • Float supports repeating tasks with end dates. If no end date is set, an end date will be set three years from the date of import.
