When you have multiple Google workspace accounts with calendars, it makes scheduling difficult (e.g. an external account and an internal working account). Others can’t see your overall availability without knowing to check both calendars. Tools that don’t support multiple account calendars for one person (like Ashby) will end up scheduling conflicts.
How do you fix that?
The easiest way I’ve found is to sign up for a free account from Reclaim AI. There you can sync multiple calendars into one so that anyone looking at your main calendar can see the aggregate of all the calendars.
Now you can still have multiple accounts and calendars for different purposes (I have a sales account and a internal account) without disrupting others or scheduling conflicts.
- Convenience is king so the better strategy is not to educate people about your multiple calendars but to combine it into one they already know to check

It’s useful to think about the underlying utilities that go into running one’s life and business with the same rigor used to build something significant. Afterall, the things we rely on every day can have an outsized impact on our own performance so why not treat it that way?
