Hi, how can we help?

Google Calendar connection

Gumb events can be integrated into your private Google Calendar. Once the connection is set up, new events update automatically and will appear in your calendar.

Important: The frequency at which Gumb events are synced depends on the calendar itself, so it might take a few minutes for new events to show up. This timing is beyond Gumb's control.

You can establish this connection across all devices – Web, iOS, and Android. Simply visit your user profile, select the 'Calendar Connection' tab, and follow the provided steps.

Step 1: Connect and essential: Set checkmark!

Select account

First, connect to your Google account. To do that, you need to click the "Sign in with Google" box that you see in the "Calendar Connection" section of your account.

The checkmark must be set!

You must check the box to connect Gumb after selecting your Google account.

Step 2: Select community

Events will only be synchronized for selected communities, where the checkmark is set. The selection can be changed at any time.

Step 3: Reload the page after a few minutes

The first synchronization

Gumb and Google Calendar are probably open at the same time. Reload the Google page now. Once you have connected your Google calendar and activated the communities, a "first synchronization" occurs. As a result, it may take a few minutes for all events, e.g., of a whole existing event series, to appear in the calendar.

One Calendar per Community

To keep your community events organized and easily distinguishable in your calendar, Gumb automatically creates a separate, individual calendar for each community.

Event Sync is Now Automatic and One-Way

The event synchronization between Gumb and Google Calendar is now fully automatic and one-way: changes in Gumb appear in the corresponding Google Calendar within minutes, but changes in Google Calendar do not affect Gumb events. Here's what this means:

  • Automatically Synced: When an admin or group leader creates or modifies events in Gumb, your Google Calendar updates automatically within minutes.
  • Google Calendar Independence: Changes made in your Google Calendar don't impact Gumb events. You can edit, color-code, or delete events in Google Calendar without impacting Gumb.

Utilize Direct Links

Each Gumb event in your Google Calendar now includes a direct link to the app. With a single click, you can quickly confirm or cancel your attendance.

What You Need to Know

Complete Event Synchronization

As soon as you link your calendar with Gumb, all events from last week onwards, with no time limit, are synchronized. This ensures you always have access to all future events in both calendars, missing no important details.

Updates on Changes

  • Admin Changes: If an admin modifies events in Gumb and you have the Google Calendar page open, you'll need to refresh the page to see the updates. It may take a few minutes for changes to be visible, which is beyond Gumb's control.
  • Member Removal: If an admin removes a member from the Gumb community, synchronization for that user automatically stops. All Gumb events, including the entire Gumb community, are removed from their Google Calendar.

Future Features in Focus

Planned Enhancements

We're constantly developing new features to enhance your experience with our software. However, software development requires time and care. Here's a sneak peek at what's coming:

  • Selective Synchronization of Response Fields: Soon, you'll be able to choose which responses to invitations are visible in your Google Calendar – for example, only showing events where you've responded "Yes, I'm in!"
  • Display Your Response in Google Calendar: In the future, your status (e.g., "Yes, I'm in") will be directly visible in the details of the Google Calendar event if you've made that choice on Gumb.
  • Integration with Other Calendars: Connection to Outlook and Apple Calendars is also planned, with the Apple integration expected in Q1/2024.

Stay tuned for the new features we have in the works!
