Not entirely, but there's a hack around it and here's the best way to do it!
Typically, when scheduling calendar events on your chosen calendar platform (Google, Office 365, or Outlook), you'll only have one calendar that's used for all of your events. To get calendar events to automatically import into more than one project, you'll need to set up several calendars within your calendar platform.
This guide will walk you through how you can do it via the Google Calendar:
1.) Head into your Google calendar.
You can locate your calendar lists on the left-hand side of the page. Use the triangle toggle icons to show or hide these lists. You should see two different lists to choose from:
- My Calendars (lists every calendar you've created within your Google Calendar)
- If the calendar's box is filled in with a color, then it will show on your Google Calendar.
- If the calendar's box is empty, this means it's hidden.
- Other calendars (these are calendars that are shared with you, but created by other people)
2.) Create a new calendar.
Next to "My calendars", click the dropdown and select Create new calendar. You can use this new calendar to house all of the events you'd like to automatically import into a specific project.
In this example, we can name the calendar Client X
*Note: It's a good idea to name the calendar the same name as the project you'd like the events to correspond with.
Make sure to select the correct timezone you are in and will use in the calendar.
Create the calendar!
3.) Set up your calendar to auto-import into Timely.
Now, head over to your Google Calendar Integration page in Timely.
- Check off the box for your newly created calendar (in this example Client X).
- If you want these events to auto-import into the project that corresponds to the Google Calendar, select the second radio button that reads "Show events on the day view and auto-import to a project [Name of Project]"
4.) Now that the calendar is set up, you can add an event in your Google Calendar.
Here, you'll choose which calendar you'd like your event to fall under.
You can also edit already-made calendar events. Just click on the event to open it up and then edit the Calendar dropdown.
Once you've selected the corresponding calendar, your event will automatically import into the correct project!

5.) 🎉 Way to go! You did it!
Now you can set up as many calendars as you'd like within your calendar platform so that you can import your events into a number of different projects within Timely!
