[Frappe App] Google Calendar Integration

Hello Team,

We are working on Google Calendar integration with ERPNext. Events created by the user on Google calendar will be synced with ERPNext and vice versa.

Release Details:
For first phase we are considering,

  1. User will be able to sync google’s primary calendar of selected account.
  2. User can create and updates the records, from google to erp and Vice Versa.

In a nutshell:

  1. Bi-Directional events sync (Google Calendar to ERP and vise versa)
  2. Based on OAuth

We would like to share this app. Your inputs would be valuable.

That’s an awesome idea. So many small & medium companies are using Google Apps for business. So any integration with Google Apps is welcome.
In the same idea… how feasable is it to integrate the back up (or sync the db) with Google Drive instead of Dropbox.

Best,

François

Agreed, Adding Google Calendar and Doc’s would be amazing. Please keep us posted on development.

It would be amazing…, however I prefer Google Drive/Docs integration in addition of DropBox.

But since this is a custom app, I just concern about maintaining update compatibility to avoid conflicts/issues when updating bench frappe/erpnext…

Thanks

Of course Google Drive / Docs integration in addition of Dropbox is preferable of just “instead” :wink:

BTW … any update on this? Can we even try it?

Best,

François

@rmehta Can you add this functionality in the core product? I was wondering there may be many developers who have no problem sharing their code and getting credited for it.

Also, I think these products should be tested by erpnext team before they are deployed for use by erpnext users.

Google Calendar integration is a very good thing if it’s safe!

It would be a great addon to the core product and allow us paying users access to some much needed features.

I am getting error while install GCAL app. Could you please help?
Raised issue here

Need it urgently :cry: Please help.

try bench migrate

Same error. Already tried. Is it possible to get the logs why it might be failing?
I can see the app GCAL Sync in the Frappe Desk but it only half installed. There is no option for setting gmail id and api key.

Hi Saurabh,

Thanks for help. At last I was able to make things work.

  1. Upgraded to latest version 6.
  2. Started redis cache server.
  3. Dropped the site using bench drop-site mysite and again created it.
  4. Added the apps from Frappe Desk.

Things are running smooth now. ERPNext and Frappe Bench are really great tools. Thanks again.

Hi Saurabh,

I tried your GCAL integration,

What i did was

  1. upgraded to latest version
  2. update the dependency
  3. bench get-app gcal https://github.com/indictranstech/GCAL.git
  4. then install the module through the UI in erpnext.
