Syncing Calendar

Google Sync

Synchronize OfficeClip Calendar entries with Google Calendar.


Synchronizing with the Google default contact folder and default calendar is not advised. This recommendation is meant to keep OfficeClip information separated from other personal information in Google.

Following are the steps for syncing your Calendar with Google Calendar:-

  1. Click Desktop > Calendar > Import/Export > Google Sync.

  2. On the next screen, click on Install button to enable the integration.

  3. Select Authorize Google Account.

  4. Select the account which is to be used for synchronization and click on Allow to allow access of your Google account to OfficeClip.

  5. From the dropdown, select the calendar group from the folder to be synced and click Next.

  6. Synchronization Options: OfficeClip allows one-way and bidirectional synchronization. One-way synchronization allows one system (either OfficeClip or Google) to be the main system and the other system to be the secondary system. Any changes in the main system updates in the secondary system but not vice versa.
  7. Select the appropriate direction - (one-way sync, two-way sync).

  8. Synchronization Policy: The synchronization policy determines when the same record is changed in both Google and OfficeClip, and which one will be given priority. You can either choose if Google overwrites OfficeClip or OfficeClip overwrites Google.

  9. Also when an item is deleted in one system, you can decide whether the same item will be deleted in the other system.


    You may want to keep the deleted item option unchecked to protect each system from inadvertent deletion of information. For example, removing events from your Google account should not remove shared events from OfficeClip.

  10. If you want to sync your events on a regular basis you can select the appropriate Auto Sync option.

  11. Then click on the Sync Now button. If the sync is taking time, you can click on the Refresh button at the top.

  12. It will give you a message when the events are synced successfully. You can see your OfficeClip events synced with Google or vice-versa.

  13. Here we have selected Google to OfficeClip option. Check the image below to see the sync results.

Synchronization Status: This allows automatic synchronization in the background. Clicking on the button Reset Sync resets the entire synchronization table. This means that the next time the user attempts synchronization, the algorithm will examine each record and attempt to determine which record in one system matches with the record in another system (comparing the values of the fields).


Reset Data should be used sparingly. Use it if you think that the synchronization is failing repeatedly. If it happens too often contact your support personnel.

Outlook Sync

OfficeClip calendar entries can also be synchronized with Microsoft Outlook® .

To synchronize with Outlook, you will need to install the Outlook add-in available from the OfficeClip website. The Outlook add-in works in the same way as the Google Sync. Refer to the Outlook Add-in help file for details.
