Configuring Google Calendar to Work with Master Tour

Follow

If you've been sent a link by your Tour Manager so you can configure your Calendar software:

Click on the link you've been sent.  This will take you to our calendar configuration webpage.  Warning: you must have at least a free "Mobile" account with Master Tour before you can configure your Calendar.  Simply click on the link that says "I want to subscribe to my tour itinerary on Gmail."  You will then have to enter your Master Tour username and password in order to generate a link.  You have two options for which calendar configuration you want, one for having one event per day with all your Master Tour information, and the other link is to have each Master Tour schedule item show up as a separate Google Calendar schedule item.  Once you've entered this information and clicked "Build Gmail Subscription URL," you'll be presented with a link.  Copy this Google Calendar link.

 

Then, open up your Google Calendar. Click on the dropdown box next to "Other Calendars," then click "Add by URL."

Then, paste in the Google Calendar link, then click "Add Calendar." Congratulations, your Google Calendar is now synchronized with your Master Tour database.  Keep in mind, after you sync your changes in Master Tour, it may take a few hours for your Google Calendar to reflect these changes due to the way Google pulls information from calendar feeds.  Your Master Tour mobile apps and web portal should reflect any changes you've synced within 16 minutes, though.
