Automatically preparing time from your calendar

This feature is in beta.

Want to speed up logging time for appointments & regularly scheduled meetings? Noko can automatically read your calendar and prepare entries in your Noko Inbox! You can even pre-fill the project name & description, saving even more time!

Getting your calendar’s iCal Feed URL

Before you can setup your calendar sync in Noko, you’ll first need to get the iCal feed URL for the calendar that you want Noko to read. Below are some help articles for common calendar services:

Google Calendar

Can’t find your iCal URL? Not to worry! Send an email to and we’ll be happy to help out!

Setting up your calendar sync

To setup your calendar sync:

  1. Open up your personal settings by hovering over your avatar and name and clicking Settings & Profile.
  2. Click on the Calendar Sync tab
  3. Paste your Calendar’s iCal feed URL into the Calendar URL field
  4. Click “Save & Close”

Noko will automatically check your calendar for events coming up soon, and add them to your Noko Inbox!

If the email address for your calendar is different than the email address you use for Noko, you can customize which email address we check the event attendance for with the Check attendance for field

Prefilling the project name and description

You can prefill the name & description for the prepated entry by adding any of these lines to the event’s description:

Magic Phrase
Noko Project:
The project name in Noko. By default, pending entries will not have a project assigned; and will warn you if the prefilled name does not match an existing project name.
Noko Description:
What we should prefill the descriptiopn with. Otherwise, we’ll use the event’s title.

All-day events

All-day events are synced around 9AM in your local time. They are not prepared with any time, because we don’t know exactly how much time the event takes!

Multi-day all-day events are only added to your Noko Inbox on the first day of the event. This is to help keep your inbox clean, because multi-day events can be used in multiple ways (such as to denote project periods, seasonal events, or overall reminders)
