Step 3 of 3: Test your Integration Set up with Data

Once you have established a connection between BotPenguin and Google Calendar and complete the mapping, you are ready to go for your first test lead. You can test your integration setup by creating a dummy lead on the bot. This lead should appear in your BotPenguin dashboard and the Google Calendar you have integrated.

Still Not Working, Let’s Troubleshoot!

If you are not getting dummy leads from your Bot to Google Calendar, it may be due to multiple reasons:
  • Wrong Authorization Details added- You need to check and see if all the authorization credentials, such as API Token, API key, and URL, have been entered correctly.
  • Free plan- You are not subscribed to the paid plan on BotPenguin, as integration works only with the paid plan.
