How it works

After you synchronize your Growegy.com with your Outlook Calendar, all the marketing programs and tasks assigned to you in Growegy will appear on your Outlook Calendar.

The tasks and marketing programs shared with Outlook Calendar can only be created in Growegy.

Changing dates for Marketing Programs

If at any point, you need to change the dates for Growegy programs that are assigned to you, drag it to the right date in either calendar, and both calendars will be updated.

Note: only the programs that you own in Growegy will appear on your Outlook Calendar.  

If you need to change the dates for Growegy Tasks, drag the task to the right date in your Outlook or Growegy Calendar and both calendars will be updated.

 Note: when you own a Growegy Marketing Program, all the tasks associated with this program will appear on your Outlook Calendar, regardless of who is responsible for completing the tasks.

Task status

Once you finish a task, mark it as “done” in Growegy, then your Outlook Calendar will indicate it as well. Finished tasks display ✅ in their titles, while open tasks have ◻️ in their titles for your convenience. 
Note: at this point the task status can only be changed in Growegy, not in Outlook Calendar.

Programs and Tasks Deletion

Deleting a task or program in Growegy will completely remove it from your Outlook Calendar. But if you delete a synced task or program in Outlook Calendar, it will not be deleted from Growegy.
