Troubleshooting: No Calendar Events
If your reservations are not showing up on your Google Calendar, your access grant may have expired.
- Log out of Chronos.

Master Admin Calendars
Clients may be configured to receive all calendar events to their Google calendar. The client must be configured properly using steps 1 and 2 outlined previously in this article. This feature relies on Chronos's Client Tagging System.
To configure Chronos for master calendars, create a tag that you can remember. In this example, we are going to use the
google master tag.
Step 1. Add the master_google_calendar_tag to the settings.
- Click Menu / Server Settings.
- Click Notification to view the notification settings.
- Set the value of the Google Master Calendar setting.
Step 2. Tag Clients
- Browse to a client that you wish to receive all calendar reservation events.
- Add the
google mastertag to their account.
All clients that are tagged with the
google master tag will receive all reservation events to their Google Calendar.
Updating Existing Reservations
Existing reservations on your Chronos account will be synced to your Google Calendar when you successfully authenticate using the Login With Your Google Account process. To force this update of all existing calendar reservations, sign out of Chronos, then sign back in using your Google Account.
