What are Other Calendars?

Other calendars are non-Daylite calendars that you can show in Daylite, such as iCloud, Google and Exchange.

Why should I show my Other Calendars in Daylite?

If you use calendars like iCloud, Google or Exchange, showing them in Daylite is the quickest and easiest way to get your calendar set up and have all your appointments in one place.

Showing other calendars in Daylite is easier than importing your calendars. However, you can’t complete normal Daylite functions with them, such as linking contacts or creating follow-ups, and they can’t be seen by your team in Daylite. Still, it is a great way to get started.
