This question came up in our Member meetup – I had to do a little research in order to answer it. 

What I demonstrated during our member meetup was how to sync a Google calendar to Outlook on your Computer

  1. In Google Calendar – find the desired calendar in left sidebar – click the 3-dot menu
  2. Scroll down to “Secret Address in iCal format” and copy that
  3. In Outlook, go to calendar – lower left, and Right-click Other calendars, choose Add Calendar, From Internet
  4. Paste what was copied from Google
Then you clarified that you wanted to go the other way and sync your Outlook calendar to Google. I don’t think that is possible, unless your calendar is in – in the cloud – not just Outlook on your computer. Because Google has no way to continuously access your computer. I may be wrong here since I am not an Outlook user, but that’s what I found.


If your calendar is on – then all you need to do is add your account to Google. 

My recommendation is to move completely to Google Calendar. You can Export the calendar from Outlook and Import it to Google, but it won’t sync.

Let me know if this helps and if you need further help.
