Task <> Calendar Sync

Amplenote makes it possible to sync your tasks to your Google Calendar or Outlook account. When you update your events, your task will update, and vice versa. It's a great way to make sure that time-sensitive tasks don't slip through the cracks.

And of course, all of this works whether events are setup as fixed recurrence, flexible recurrence, or one-time incidents.

Amplenote "Task Calendar" Settings, showing the connection to a new calendar

The first step is to log into Amplenote, go to your user settings, and then the "Task Calendar" tab. From there, you can log in to Google or Microsoft with the calendar you'd like to have your Amplenote sent into.

linkDefine a task Start Time (aka "Due" time)

Once you've connected your calendar, your tasks are ready to be sent to your calendar. 🎉 Use the Due field (soon to be renamed "Start time") to control when the event will show up on your calendar. The "Duration" field controls how long the event is scheduled for.

Creating a task with a Due time specified

As you choose these fields, Amplenote will begin to propagate your choices over to your calendar. The total process takes 10-30 seconds, and works a bit faster if you leave your note open.

Once you've created the task, it will show up in your Google or Outlook calendar. If you update or change the task, it will change on your calendar. If you mark it as complete, it will be removed from your calendar. ✨
