An online calendar allows you to effectively manage your availability. You can avoid double bookings, maximise your real-time availability and deliver a great client experience.

LawTap supports Microsoft Exchange/Outlook/Hotmail, Microsoft 365, Google Calendar/G Suite and Apple iCloud calendars, by default.

Connecting your calendar is typically the last step of the process when signing up for a LawTap Lawyer account or when accepting an invitation to LawTap as a lawyer.

In this article, we take you through the process of connecting to one or more calendar applications after sign-up, and provide instructions on how to manage calendar connections.

Note! If you have not connected your calendar, LawTap still allows you to book appointments for your assigned appointment types, but this may result in double bookings and a poor client experience, as it is not possible to establish your availability in real time.

How to connect your calendar

To connect LawTap to your calendar:

  1. Sign in to LawTap.
  2. Select Integrations in the top bar.
  3. In Calendars, select Manage Calendars.
