What this feature does
Synchronize a Google Calendar with a Resource Booking Calendar in coapp.
New bookings or edits to an existing booking in coapp will be added to the selected Google Calender of the user. Events added to the user's Google Calendar will block the availability in the coapp booking calendar of the connected resource.
Please note that this feature is still in early beta ;)
