How do I set up Apple app-specific passwords?

To use the calendar sync with your Apple calendar, you need to create a special "app-specific password" inside of your Apple account. 

Here are the steps:

  1. Log in to your Apple account here
  2. Make sure you have turned on either two-step verification or two-factor authentication (most people have this "on" by default)
  3. In the Security section, click "Generate Password" under the app-specific passwords section
  4. Type "Bookedin" to give a name for your app-specific password, then click "Create"app_specific_passwords_for_bookedin.png
  5. Now copy the password, and leave this tab open until you've completed the next step.app_specific_passwords_for_bookedin_step_again.png

  9. On the sync setup screen, choose the iCloud option
  10. Sign in using your AppleID email address, and the app specific password you setup in step 5 above.
