The integration of inspace with Google Workspace brings a multitude of benefits to users, offering seamless access and synchronization of calendars. With this integration, users can streamline their workflow, eliminating the need to switch between multiple applications or platforms.

This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to connect Google Workspace with inspace, ensuring a smooth and seamless integration. We recommend obtaining full permissions from Google Workspace, particularly the "owner" role, to maximize the benefits of this integration. Let's get started on optimizing your calendar management experience!

From this guide, you will learn about:

  • Selecting owner role in the Google Admin Console
  • Using Calendar Resources
  • Synchronization of workspaces in inspace with Google Calendar

Granting Permissions for Google Workspace Integration

When integrating Google Workspace with inspace, it's crucial to ensure that the user has the necessary permissions to add events to the Google Calendar seamlessly. To optimize this integration, we recommend selecting a user with the owner role in the Google Admin Console, rather than a Super Admin.

By assigning the owner role to the designated user, you can guarantee that they possess all the required authorizations to fully utilize the Google Workspace integration with inspace. This ensures a smooth and efficient experience, allowing for seamless event management and synchronization between platforms.

Let's dive into the process of granting permissions and maximizing the potential of your Google Workspace integration with inspace!
