Google Calendar for Confluence Pro

Integrate Google Calendar on your pages by using the Google Calendar macro

Documentation

This is the documentation for the Atlassian Confluence Add-on Google Calendar for Confluence.

Installation

Head to the settings within Confluence. Note that administrator privileges are required to access the settings.

In the menu on the left side, navigate to “Find new add-ons” under the “Atlassian Marketplace” category. Search for “Google Calendar”, wait until the entry “Google Calendar for Confluence” is shown and proceed to “Install” the add-on.

General usage

After having installed the add-on from the Atlassian Marketplace, you can embed Google Calendars in any wiki page or blog post. When editing a page, just type {google-calendar} and open the macro editor, if it doesn’t do so automatically. You can now authorize which Google Calendars the add-on should have read access to. By authorizing the add-on to access your Google Calendars, it is able to delegate access to users of your wiki without requiring them to have access to the Google Calendars you’re sharing. Note that only read access is requested and editing events are not currently possible with this add-on.

You can now configure which Google Calendars should be shown. You can also configure many other options, such as the size of the calendar frame and which menu buttons should be shown, as well as the used timezone and clock format.

Troubleshooting

Access restrictions (Cloud version only)

Make sure the Google Calendar for Confluence user has access to the pages that are using calendars. For example, if you want to embed a calendar in a Space that has restricted access, make sure to add the “Google Calendar for Confluence” user to the list of users that have “View” permissions:

Another issue can be the permissions set on an individual blog post, page (or parent page), where you would need to grant the “Google Calendar for Confluence” user “View” permissions as well:
