Setting Up Garoon Scheduler Connector

An additional field is added to the "New appointment" screen in Garoon so that users can retrieve information from a connected kintone app.
When an appointment is created by selecting a record to retrieve the information from the app, the appointment is associated with the record in Kintone. Image
The appointments that are associated with a record on the app appear in a list on the record.
This is useful for tracking the history of customer visits. Image
