    We’ve been looking into this further. It’s a feature we would love to add and I believe we will. Ideally if an appointment was created or edited in Flight Schedule Pro, your personal calendar would immediately be updated.

    However, there’s a real down side to us syncing with personal calendars. It’s the fact that they new appointments won’t show up immediately and when appointments are rescheduled in Flight Schedule Pro the update won’t be seen for many hours in your personal calendar.

    For example, if you use Google Calendar, it could take 8 hours or more for an appointment rescheduled in Flight Schedule Pro to show the correct start-time in Google Calendar.

    Google knows about this issue, but it’s not something they plan on fixing.

    I just wanted to share this information with you and see if you still love this full sync feature.

    Would you mind commenting and letting…

    At a minimum we should be receiving an email that allows us to post individual reservations to our google/apple calendar (especially since you are already sending a confirmation email). It's really frustrating when I think I have something at a certain time, but then find out that I transcribed something incorrectly due to human error. I know this is my fault, but its bound to happen when I sit down to schedule 10 or more sessions in a row. Frankly, lack of this functionality causes me to schedule less frequently which in turn causes my flight school (your customer) to receive less revenue and be less likely to continue using your service. Local flight schools in my area have home-built this functionality on their own websites and it is quite effective. If I have to update a reservation, it just sends me a new email request which I post to my calendar, then I simply delete the old reservation directly from my personal calendar.
