Syncing Your Calendar with iCal or Google (1-way Sync)


Go to My Account > Settings > Calendar > check “Enable calendar Sync”

This will generate a secure URL that you can use to sync with external calendar apps.

Note: If you are part of a group practice, only your specific calendar will sync. It won't include appointments for other clinicians in your group.
