With the Calendar integration, we're now eliminating the need to manually create events on your calendars with regards to your upcoming Goals, Initiatives or Manager 1:1s to get notified about them.
The calendar integration makes it easy for everyone to be reminded of their upcoming commitment deadlines by automating reminders to any of Goals, Initiatives or Manager 1:1s. The control lies completely in the hand of users on what they wish to be reminded about and this functionality is available on all the popular calendars like Google and Outlook.
The easy 3-step process of integrating your calendar with Mesh goes like,
Step 1: If you're yet to install the plugin then you'll see a pop-up for it in your 1:1 section, provided your company has the 1:1 module enabled for you. Clicking on this will take you directly to the Calendar integration section of the dashboard.
Alternatively, you can also go to Me >> Settings >> Plugins >> Calendar for it.
Step 2: Click on the blue "Install" button here. You'll be redirected to the Google sign-in page to confirm your account credentials to which you want to integrate the calendar. You'll also be prompted to select a different provider if you're not on the Google environment.
(Note: We're still in the process of validating the feature with Google which can take upto a couple of months time. So you might see a warning message before while confirming your account. Click on Advanced and then allow to proceed.)
Step 3: Next, you'll be asked to permit Nylas.com to access your Google account.
Hit allow and you'll be immediately taken back to the Mesh's Calendar integration section completing the installation process.
Next, you can enable the features for which you wish to get notified about via a simple toggle button as show below. Once enabled, there's nothing else you need to do and the calendar will automatically pick up all your upcoming 1:1s (as per the below image) and will send you reminders as they approach.
