Google dialoga con Microsoft

outlook Google e Microsoft sono spesso viste come due antagoniste, ma il software che ho scovato oggi permette una collaborazione tra i due giganti.

Google da tempo propone degli strumenti simili a Office da utilizzare online, si tratta di Google Docs.

A questi strumenti (che comprendono per ora un Foglio di Calcolo e una Video Scrittura) si aggiunge Google Calendar, del tutto analogo a Outlook.calendar_logo

 

 

Ed ora Google permette di sincronizzare l’agenda di Microsoft: Outlook con quello visualizzabile online da qualunque pc che si collega a Google Calendar.

Ecco la pagina che illustra le caratteristiche di questo interessante software (gratuito):

Google Calendar Sync: Getting Started

Google Calendar Sync allows you to sync events between Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar. You’ll be able to determine the direction of information flow, as well as the sync frequency. Staying on top of your Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar events has never been easier!

Keep in mind that it’s not possible to sync events on secondary calendars at this time. Google Calendar Sync will only sync events from your primary Google Calendar and your default Microsoft Outlook calendar.

Get started

To begin syncing, follow the steps below:

  1. To download Google Calendar Sync, visit http://dl.google.com/googlecalendarsync/GoogleCalendarSync_Installer.exe
  2. Once a dialog box appears, click “Save File.” The download should open automatically. If it doesn’t, manually open the download from your browser’s download window.
  3. Click “OK” to confirm that you’re aware this is an executable file.
  4. Read through the Google Calendar Sync Terms of Service, and click “I Agree.”
  5. Continue to follow through the Installation Options and click “Install” to finish the set-up process.

Once Google Calendar Sync is installed on your computer, the Google Calendar Sync Settings window will appear:
