Booking Button: Copy and past the the contents of the dialog on your website to add a Booking Button. Clicking this will take the customer to the Microsite.
Google Calendar Sync: Link talech to your google calendar so that you can view all upcoming appointments on the google calendar instead of talech. This only applies to appointments created after the sync has been completed. This is also a One Way Sync, meaning that all changes made to the appointment on the Google Calendar will not update in talech. It only syncs new appointments to your Google Calendar.
