A simple yet powerful Google Calendar integration for FileMaker.
Feedzon Calendar is a simple yet powerful API enabling you to easily integrate your FileMaker solutions with Google Calendar in as little as just one script step. Support is provided for both free Google and Google Apps accounts and there are no limits to the number of FileMaker tables or files, servers, Google accounts or calendars that you can connect to.
This is the most thorough implementation of any service integrating FileMaker with Google Calendar and includes features not supported elsewhere such as repeating events, attendees and time zones. Most importantly, integration with your solution is achieved using FileMaker Scripts which you're already familiar with, so you remain in complete control.
The Feedzon Calendar API enables you to publish data from FileMaker to Google Calendar and subscribe to Google Calendar data from FileMaker, effectively providing a full two-way synchronisation. Once synchronised with Google Calendar, you could access your calendar through your desktop calendar application, embed it on your website or give access to staff using any mobile device, including Android. Data entered by them directly into their mobile devices will then synchronise directly back to your FileMaker database.
Feedzon Calendar does not require FileMaker Server, although server-side scripting is certainly possible. Feedzon Calendar works directly with stand-alone or networked solutions using FileMaker Go, Pro, Server, WebDirect, CWP and runtime solutions.
Feedzon Calendar replaces and greatly improves upon our very successful FMgCal plug-in which helped thousands of FileMaker users for several years.
Feedzon Calendar uses features built into the FileMaker 13 family and requires no plug-ins nor Java, so there is no need to install anything on your computers. We leverage and enhance Google's own sophisticated security features giving you complete control over which users have access to which calendars. You can even group or separate customers into separate 'service' accounts.
Functions include: Identify available calendars; Create, edit and delete single or repeating events; Add, edit or remove attendees; Specify availability (free or busy); Time-zone support; International date formats; Download events between specified dates; Download events that were created, edited or removed since a specified date; Search events by text; Download details of repeating events; Moving events between calendars.
In addition to single events, all day events and events that span multiple days, we have also developed a unique and simple method so you can manage repeating events in your FileMaker solution. We've also provided a clever function so you can download those repeating instance dates to your solution and create related records if appropriate. You can even update individual instances or remove them from the repeating sequence. A repeating event can be defined as daily, weekly, monthly or yearly with a RepeatUntil date or number of times. Weekly repetitions can be defined to occur on one or more weekdays, as necessary.
Traveling to Paris and want to put your flight times and planned events into your Calendar via FileMaker? With Feedzon Calendar you can specify the time zone for an event and even indicate separate start and end times for a single event - great for flights!. Full support is provided for all international time zones. If you're not bothered about time zones, just leave it blank, simple!
Add and update your attendees directly from you database. For each attendee you can specify their email address, response status whether their attendance is required or optional and add a comment.
Installing Feedzon Calendar is completely hassle free, unlike plug-ins or Java based solutions - there is simply nothing to install. Nothing to install on your FileMaker Server. Nothing to install on FileMaker client. Nothing.
When we upgrade the calendar service or fix a bug - not that there are any, of course - you also don't need to install anything and you certainly don't need to worry that an OS or Java upgrade might cause a problem. Everything is managed on our web servers.
Integration is simple for most FileMaker developers. However should you require assistance integrating Calendar into your solutions, Feedzon staff includes FileMaker Experts offering a custom development service.Contact Us
