eTermin supports the CalDAV standard and can therefore be synchronized with all common calendars in real time (Outlook, Google, Apple iCloud, Lotus Notes, etc.).
To synchronize eTermin with Apple iCloud please follow these steps:
Connect to your eTermin Account and go to Company > Synchronization and select Apple iCloud:
Please enter the username of your Apple iCloud Account.
Enable two-factor authentication in iCloud if you haven't enabled it yet. This increases the security of your iCloud account and is recommended by Apple. Please follow Apple’s instructions to activate the two-factor-authentication.
Afterwards you need to create an app-specific password for eTermin following these instructions from Apple.
Please enter the generated password in eTermin and click on select external calendar.
A new window opens where you can select the calendar you want to synchronize. Please save your changes afterwards.
After successful activation of the synchronization, all appointments will be synchronized from your external calendar to the eTermin calendar. Depending on the number of existing appointments in your calendar, this can take up to 30 minutes. Afterwards you can have a look at the synchronized appointments in the eTermin calendar. Furthermore, you can now test the connection by booking a new appointment in the eTermin calendar or via the online scheduling page. The appointment should be visible in the external calendar immediately.
Note: The synchronization from the eTermin calendar to the external calendar happens in real time. Synchronization from the external calendar to the eTermin calendar depends on the synchronization interval. It is set to 5 minutes by default. Appointments that are created or edited in the external calendar are therefore visible in the eTermin calendar within 5 minutes at the latest.
Note: If you have already booked appointments in the eTermin calendar before you activated the synchronization, these will not be transferred to the external calendar automatically. Therefore, we recommend that you edit the appointment in the eTermin calendar (e.g. move it by drag & drop and then move it back to the original period). This will trigger the synchronization with the external calendar.
