You want your users to see your personal and business appointments in the same calendar app (for example, Google Calendar). Then connect both calendars with the help of a policy.
In this how-to, we'll show you how to create a policy for Android devices with a work profile that can be used to connect calendar apps from both the personal and business profiles.
- In the Cortado administration portal select Administration→ Policies.
- Click on the Plus icon to add a new policy.
- Then select Android and Work profile as the setup method.
- There you will find the policy Connected work and personal apps under Device Usability (arrow in illus.).
- Enter the bundle ID of the calendar app you want to connect (arrow in illus.).
- You can find the bundle ID of your app in the Google Play Store, in the address bar of the browser (example in illus.).
- Users now need to open the settings on their Android devices with work profile (arrow in the left illus.) and then tap Apps (arrow in the right illus.)→ Special app access→ Connected work and personal apps.
- There, users select the desired calendar app (example in the left illus.) and activate the slider (arrow in the right illus.).
Note! The connection of the two calendars may take a few minutes.
- All appointments (private and business) are then displayed in the calendar of the work profile (example in the left illus.).
- In the menu of the calendar app both email accounts (work profile and private profile) are listed (arrows in the right illus.).
