Configuring CompanionLink:

  1. Open CompanionLink, select Settings, and click Settings below Google. (For CompanionLink for Google, click Settings in CompanionLink and select the Google Settings tab at the top.)
  2. Choose Selected Calendars (All of your Google Calendars should now be visible)
  3. Select the calendars you want to sync with. (The Default Calendar will normally be your Main\Original Google Calendar)
  4. Put a check in the box to Create Sub-Calendars in Outlook.
  5. Return to the main menu of CompanionLink and Sync. (For instructions on setting up CompanionLink to Sync with Google please Click Here)
  6. You should now see new Outlook Calendars with the same names as the selected Google Sub-Calendars. If you add records to these Calendars in Outlook they will sync to the Google Calendar of the same name.


  • Note: If any of the calendars in the Google Calendar list are marked Read-Only, we will be unable to sync events added to this calendar in Outlook as this type of Google calendar does not allow additions from anywhere but the source.

  1. Open CompanionLink, select Settings, and click Settings below Google. (For CompanionLink for Google, click Settings in CompanionLink and select the Google Settings tab at the top.)
  2. Under "Please select which Google Calendars you would like to synchronize" that you have, either select All Calendars or Selected Calendars.
  3. Ensure the box to Create Sub-Calendars in Outlook in not checked.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Return to the main menu of CompanionLink.


Configuring Google:

For each Outlook Category that you wish to sync, you will need a corresponding Google Calendar with the same name.

  1. Open Google Calendar in your web browser.
  2. Select the arrow next to "My calendars" and Create New Calendar.
  3. Name the Google Calendar the same as your Outlook Category.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for each Outlook Category that you wish to sync.


Configuring Outlook:

If there are any Google Calendars that do not have corresponding Outlook Categories, CompanionLink will create them, but they do not get added to the Master Category List. To do this go to Categorize > All Categories.

Any new categories will say "(not in Master Category List)." Select a category and click "New..." to pick a color and save the category to your Master Category List.

Information added to Google Calendars will now sync to the corresponding Outlook Category and vice-versa.
