How Do I Use Google Calendar as a Bridge to Establish a Three-Way Sync Between Clio and iCal?

Objective:

  • bi-directional sync between Apple Calendar and Clio

Environment:

  • Clio Manage
  • Google Calendar

Additional Information:

Clio cannot currently sync directly with iCal. Instead, we can add one or more Google Calendars to iCal, and then sync Clio with the Google Calendar. This creates a 3-way sync using all three calendar programs.

Note: If your calendar data was originally in iCal, this process will move that Calendar data to Google, and that information will be synced to iCal using a new calendar. After completing the process, a section of your iCal will list the Gmail email address that is currently syncing. Only updates to that Calendar in iCal will be synced to Google and Clio. 

Procedure:

  1. If your calendar data is currently in iCal:
    1. Export it to an .ICS file (see here)
    2. Import the .ICS file into Google (see here)
  2. Sync your Google Calendar with iCal
    • For Apple Calendar on Desktop, see here
    • For iPhone IOS iCal, see here
  3. Sync your Google Calendar with Clio (see here)
