Adding a Google Calendar

Last updated on by Freeola Support

Important Information

This guide is for the Freeola InstantPro Website Builder. This service has now been replaced by a more modern product, RQS, and therefore is no longer updated with new features.

To build your website in RQS for free, please click here or visit the RQS Builder section of your MyFreeola Control Panel.

If you use a Google Calendar to manage your events or appointments, you can display this on your InstantPro site.

If you are looking for a way to post availability and appointments, you may be able to use an Availability Calendar Page or a Schedule Page.

This guide explains how to integrate your Google Calendar into your site.

Step 1

From the Main Menu, select Custom Code & Snippets from under the Website Tools heading.

Once you've selected your calendar and added your events to it, you'll need to get some code for the snippet.

On the left hand side, click the Arrow next to your Calendar Name. Then click the Calendar Settings.

From the Main Menu click Page Manager and Edit the page you want to add the Google Map to.

From the Page Elements section, select Add Snippet and drag & drop it to where you would like it to appear on the page. Double click the box to select your snippet, if you have more than one you can choose from the drop-down menu and press Select.

Select Snippet

Step 8

Your Snippet Name will now appear in your snippet block and should look similar to the image below in the Drag & Drop Editor. While it appears like this in the Editor, it should appear as a Google Calendar on your live site. Once you are happy press Finish.

Snippet Example
