Can I connect Things to Google, Exchange, Outlook,…
No. Things can only communicate with Apple Calendar. To view your 3rd party calendar data in Things just sync it to Apple Calendar first.
Will Things sync my calendar data to other devices?
No. Things only mirrors the calendar events from Apple Calendar on the device itself. We don’t sync your calendar data, we only display it locally. That’s why you have to enable calendar integration on each device separately.
Can I send to-dos from Things to the calendar?
No, you can’t send to-dos from Things to Apple Calendar.
Can I see events in Things’ widget?
No. Things doesn’t actually store your calendar data, so any changes to events would not appear in Things’ widget in a timely manner. In addition, widget sizes are pre-set by Apple and we can’t grow the widget to accommodate all events and to-dos. For these reasons, you can’t see events in Things’ widgets.
