Now you just need to choose the following:

  • To-Do list, where you will add tasks directly from the calendar. You can then move them to another To-Do list or project.
  • The Google account you currently want to link.
  • The projects whose sub/tasks you want to have on your Google Calendar. These can be all projects or just some specific ones.
  • The solvers whose tasks you want to have on your Google Calendar.
  • Lastly, there is the option to load existing tasks in Google Calendar, if you activate this, you will have already existing tasks in your calendar. If not, the sync will only apply to newly created tasks.

Once you’ve saved your settings, you’ll have a two-way Google Calendar connection. So, as mentioned before, you can change the dates directly in Google Calendar and it will be reflected in Freelo at the same time. You can also create tasks with deadlines directly from Google Calendar.

You can adjust the synchronisation settings afterward. To edit, click on the three-dot menu on the bottom right next to the number of projects and users. Then click Edit > make the edits you need > click Save. You can also deactivate the synchronisation and possibly return to it in the future.

You can edit, deactivate and delete synchronisation settings via the three-dot menu.
