The goal of calendar integrations is to create a great experience booking mentorship sessions with your pairing, while simultaneously providing the reporting capabilities administrators need to effectively manage their program. Simply having sessions booked through your regular client would not allow for effective reporting.
When 2 users are integrated and paired together, they can both:
- See exact times the other person is available
- See the other person's busy times
- See their own availability
- Auto-add a conference link
If neither users are paired, none of the features will be available, and users will only see time slots to book into without insight on what date and times are actually available.
Therefore, in order to create a great experience, we request Calendar Read and Write Permissions.
For details on the setup and installation of our Office 365 integration, see this page.
For details on the setup and installation of our GSuite integration, see this page.
When booking mentorship sessions, we show free/busy slots for yourself and your pairing, to create a comparable experience to booking an event in your native calendar client.
Events in calendar
Sending an invite through Together will block off time in your calendar natively and add your pairing as a participant.
