Join Now Google calendar integration Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

It works with the TELUS Business Connect for Mobile app and the TELUS Business Connect for Desktop app. Once you authorize the access to your Google Calendar from your TELUS Business Connect apps, the events will be displayed in your Join Now list.

If your events include TELUS Business Connect Meetings or conferencing access, the “Join” and “Dial-in” buttons will be shown on your events. Tap (or click) on the buttons will automatically connect you to that specific online meeting or conference call.

Does Join Now work with other calendars, such as Exchange or iCal?

Currently we only support Google Calendar. We plan to support other calendars in the future release.

Am I able to schedule a meeting within Join Now?

No. The app can only synchronize with the events in Google Calendar.
