Our Gmail integration improves deliverability and ensures that emails can be sent from your custom email address without the security restrictions placed on private domains as well as @gmail.com addresses.
Sending your email directly from your Google based email means you will see all of your sent notifications in your Sent Items, so you can quickly locate an email if needed. And any "Out of office" replies or bounce back messages will be delivered straight to you so you will know if a client hasn't received an email for any reason.
You can create a free Google email account, or use any Google Workplace based email to integrate with YouCanBook.me.
Integrate with Gmail
You can integrate multiple Gmail accounts on a YouCanBook.me account.
From the top account menu, select Integrations.
If you already have Google calendar integrated, you will see the option to integrate with Gmail. Or you can scroll down to Integrate with additional services. Click Connect next to the Gmail logo.
You will be redirected to your Google accounts page. Select the Google address you'd like to send emails from, or choose "Use another account" to enter your account credentials.
Click Allow, which will give YouCanBook.me the permissions to send emails from your account on your behalf.
You'll see a green pop up confirming that the integration was successful, and the Gmail account will be listed among your account integrations.
Custom "From" Name/Email
The Gmail integration will use the From Name you've set in your notifications. You can edit this name by clicking on underlined name in the Gmail integration message.
Removing the Gmail Integration
If you'd like to change the from address so it is no longer the Gmail address you have integrated, you can integrate a different Gmail address. Or you can select a different "from" address in the notification settings.
If you disconnect the Google integration, that will include the calendar integration as well, which could impact your bookings.
If you do this, you would need to immediately click "+ Add another calendar account" to re-integrate your Google calendar account only.
