If you don't have an iOS device, you can still sync your Slick calendar to your google calendar for offline, read-only access

Calendar sync for your phone is to allow a staff member to view only their column from a mobile device's native calendar app.


🚨 Please note - Cal sync can only be applied to one calendar per column and you must have a column to set up read only access.

How it works

Calendar sync allows your calendar on your phone to stay updated with bookings in your column from your main Slick calendar, so you can check your schedule on the go and offline.

All bookings are updated in real-time so you never have to guess whether you're free for a new booking or not. You will be able to see the clients name, the service they're scheduled to receive and any attached client notes.

🚨 Please note; all the bookings in your calendar app in your phone are READ-ONLY, so you wont be able to update them using your mobile phone.

Why you should use it

  • To stay up-to-date on new bookings in your system.

  • If your internet ever drops, you have a back up of all your bookings in your phone, updated and with client notes.

  • You can sync multiple columns and they show up in your calendar as different colours so you'll be able to coordinate your team.

Questions on Cal sync

How long will these appointments stay on staff phones?

Once the day is finished, the appointments will be removed from staff's personal calendars. The Cal sync is only designed to be a handy reference point for staff in the day to stop them having to run back to the salon computer! For security reasons, no historic data will be stored on the mobile devices.
