Full Slate relies an on “Application Programming Interface” (API) to synchronize events with Google Calendar. Today, Google turned off the version of the API we were using. As a result, the two-way sync, one-way sync from Full Slate to Google Calendar, and one-way sync from Google Calendar to Full Slate are no longer functioning.
We are working to upgrade to the latest API published by Google, but at this time, we do not have an estimate for when sync will be restored. We realize this is crucial functionality for many of you, and restoring sync with Google Calendar is the top priority for our development team.
We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and disruption this causes your business. While we’re working on the fix, you might consider adding subscriptions between Full Slate and Google Calendar in order to continue seeing events across programs. For detailed instructions, please go here.
We will update this blog post as soon as we have new information.

The team here is all-hands-on-deck to fix the Google Calendar sync. We’re working hard to release the updated sync by this Monday (November 24).
Also, if you’ve added a subscription to your Google Calendar, as described here, we’ve increased the automatic sync frequency from six hours to one hour. This will help ensure your schedule is up-to-date until we release the new Google Calendar sync. As a reminder, if you don’t want to wait for the hourly automatic update, you can manually refresh the subscription under Schedule > More > Sync Now.
As soon as we have further updates, we’ll post it here.
