Setup of Agenda features

This module bring two different feature:

Then for each Google agenda you want to show in menus, you must enter:

  • Google ID of Agenda. It can be found on the Google parameters pages for the agendas like this:
  1. Log to

  4. Search line "URL Address", you will see a text "Agenda ID :"


The Agenda ID is value that looks like an email. If you have only one Agenda, it might simply be your Google login.

The last section of configuration (Google Client ID and Google Client secret) is only needed if you want the authentication request to Google is integrated into Dolibarr screens.

Synchronize events from Dolibarr to Google Agenda

The other feature is to write/update an event into Google Calendar, each time an event is added/updated into Dolibarr. Synchronization is from Dolibarr to Google. For this, go onto module setup page, tab "Sync to Google Agenda", and enter:

  • Your Google login
  • Your Google password

Then click onto Save.

The button to make a synchronization test should be available. Click on it to make a test. Note: A possible error is that Google refuse to allow access, even if user and password are correct, but just because the server that host Dolibarr is located into another country than yours. To check Google has locked your access for this reason, go onto page after failure.

Setup of Adsense

If you want to enable adsense feature, on Adsense tab, enter:

  • Your adsense customer id (ca-pub-xxxxxx)

Usage of Google Agendas features

To add event into it, you must click on link "+ Google calendar" at bottom of agenda (this is a Google limit).

For security reasons imposed by Google, the Google calendar view will display correctly only if you are logged in to Google. To facilitate this, it is possible to configure a key to allow the application to offer the Google Logon if you are not connected (See setup of module Google, tab Agenda setup, last section).

If you activate synchronization

Just go onto Google calendar after creating a Dolibarr event. You should see it into Google.
