How to Sync Google Calendar With Outlook 2007

By Eric Som

Given how busy your schedule can be as a working professional, using various time management tools can be helpful. This is certainly no different with Microsoft Outlook Calendar and Google Calendar. If you use Gmail as your primary account, you can sync both platforms without needing to update each one separately. This can save you a lot of time. One application that makes this possible is Google Calendar Sync. As of July 2010, the application only works on computers running Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

Step 1

Download Google Calendar Sync from the Google homepage. Select "Save file" when a download dialog box opens and then choose a destination on your PC.

Step 2

Install the application by double-clicking on the downloaded file and then following the prompts. Upon installing the application, the Google Calendar Sync Settings window will open.

Step 3

Type your Gmail address and password in the "Email address" and "Password" fields.

Step 4

Scroll to the "Sync Options" section and then choose an option that suits your needs. If you would like both your Google Calendar and Outlook 2007 to sync with each other, select the "2-Way" radio button. Choosing this option allows changes made in your Outlook 2007 events to be reflected in your Google Calendar.

Step 5

Specify a sync interval by entering a value in the "Sync every" field.

Step 6

Apply your settings by selecting the "Save" button.
