🎥 Video Explainer: Google Calendar
1. Butter in Google Calendar
You can more easily send out Butter invites by integrating Butter directly into your Google Calendar
Install the Butter Google Workspace add-on
To start, install the Butter Google Workspace add-on.
This will let you select Butter as your video conferencing platform when scheduling a Google Calendar event.
Add Butter to your invites
Once you’ve installed the add-on, create a new calendar event, and choose ‘Add video conferencing’.
Click ‘Log in’, log into your Butter account, and then select the relevant room. Close the Butter pop-up window, and your invite link will now be attached to the event invite.
Now, you can invite whoever you want to this event. It’s that easy!
2. Google Calendar in Butter
There are two ways to use Google Calendar inside the Butter app.
Create event invites from Butter
You can create a Google Calendar invite from within Butter by clicking 'Invite via Google Calendar' in the ‘Invite’ dropdown menu in the room of your choice.
This will open up a Google Calendar invite in your default browser. Your Room name and link will automatically be added to the event invite.
See your upcoming sessions
You can also connect your Google Calendar to see your upcoming sessions.
From the main Rooms dashboard, select ‘Log in with Google’. This will allow you to see all upcoming sessions, including those you’re hosting and those you’re invited to.
From here, you can join or start any upcoming session in one click—no need to go to your calendar.
Google Calendar is just one of the many integrations in Butter. Here’s an overview of them all:
