Sync both ways with Google and Outlook calendars


Calendars are at the center of most of our working lives and based on your feedback, we know a calendar integration in Karbon is in high demand. With that in mind, we're thrilled to announce our two-way calendar sync in My Week.

This new feature allows you to sync Karbon with your Google or Outlook calendar (Exchange coming soon), allowing you to see your availability all in one place and lessening the burden on context-switching between calendars.

The fact that the calendar integration is a two-way sync means that your calendar is updated in real-time. Google or Outlook calendar events will immediately appear in Karbon and vice versa.

This means that all your calendar events will be current and accurate. You can book with confidence, knowing that there’s less possibility of multiple bookings and schedule disruptions.


Fast and easy setup

It takes less than 30 seconds to set up the integration. Simply navigate to My Week and click on ‘Connect calendar’ and sign in to your calendar provider.

An example is a Google Calendar connection


Stay focused


Once your calendar is connected, you’ll be able to respond to a single or repeating calendar event. Your Karbon calendar entries will replicate all the event details, conferencing info, description, organizer, and attendees. Hovering over a particular event will display more information, for easy referencing. 

Join meetings via Zoom, Teams, Google Meet and Skype right from the event in your calendar in My Week. Plus, time entries from your calendar event will appear on timesheets in Karbon, saving you time and double handling.

You have the ability to view your calendar by day, schedule, and week or choose a particular date through the date picker. And you can easily block out time by dragging and dropping items from My Week into the calendar (day view only) to prioritize work and plan your day.

Easily see the color coding of your events in Karbon from your calendar provider, to make it simple to glance at your schedule and quickly see what your day, week, or schedule looks like. And you’ll instantly understand where the majority of your time is being spent so you can adjust accordingly if needed.

Automatically connect repeating work items with your Document Management System (DMS)

Once you connect Microsoft OneDrive, SharePoint or Dropbox to Karbon, you can set up your repeating work items to automatically connect to your specified DMS folders, guaranteeing your team a single, centralized source of truth. 

In the ‘Repeat Settings’ of any work item, a new section has been added called ‘Connect Folder’—this is where you can connect your DMS folder and start copying files automatically.  The connection won’t take effect until tasks and budgets are created.




To the comment section! We know you’ve waited a long time for calendar integration and will have lots of great thoughts on how you’re excited to use it today, and how you’d like to see the feature further develop over time. 

Hi @Megan Sells, I don’t think additional calendars are supported right now. If you put in a feature idea, comment the link here and I will vote for it. 😀

@Megan Sells At the moment, we only connect to one calendar - the calendar you log into Karbon with. Additional calendar is something we will look into in the future but do encourage you to put in a feature idea! 

I know our business manager would love to connect to multiple calendars.  She tracks all our calendars so she can schedule meetings where everyone is available.  If you post the feature request link here, I will have the entire team vote for it.

@DianeK Thank you!! I think this is the link to my feature request...let me know if it doesn’t work.


Voted. 😀

Is it possible to expand the size of the week view of the calendar?

I love the daily and schedule view and how I can drag and drop things I need to do - I would like that same level of detail for weekly planning. 

My Week only has the giant bucket of ‘This Week’ and ‘Working on Now’ which seems super cluttered.

Usually I’d look at my Week calendar in Outlook to see what I specifically have blocked time for
