How do I import my online calendar to my FishingBooker calendar?

    When you connect your Google or Apple online calendars with FishingBooker, our system will automatically scan your availability and block the trips you can’t run. This way, customers will only be able to book trips when you’re available.

    Please ensure these calendars are set to be public, and the events added to them need to be marked as "busy" or "blocking."


    Follow these steps to import a new calendar:

    1. Go to your Calendar 
    2. Select Sync Calendars on the desktop or click on the three dots and then select Sync Calendars on the FishingBooker for Captains app. (Open your other calendar and locate the iCal link, usually found in the settings. Here's where you can find it on Apple.
    3. Click Import calendar 
    4. Copy the URL from your external calendar into the Public calendar address field.
    5. Name the calendar you’re importing
    6. Click Import calendar
      • If you have more than one listing, choose which listing(s) this calendar should sync with
    7. Choose in which events and circumstances the trip should be blocked:
      • To block every trip that overlaps with any part of your external events, choose Another event that overlaps with part of the trip
      • To only block trips that fully overlap with your external events, choose Another event that overlaps with the full trip
    8. Click Save

    You can remove a synced calendar by clicking the three dots to the right of the calendar name and selecting “Remove.”

    To ensure a 2-way sync with other channels, be sure to export your FishingBooker calendar and import your external calendar.
