Export your teams leave into an external calendar

You're able to export your teams leave into an external calendar (ical) for example:

  • Outlook
  • Apple calendar
  • Gmail etc

 To export your team's leave calendar:

1.  Enable the setting on your Platform via Leave Rules> Leave Settings


2.  Enable the toggle on for Allow admin users to create public calendar links and save settings.



3. Then a prompt will appear with a url link to copy into your chosen calendar. Select OK to close the prompt.


4. Add the link to your chosen calendar (see below for instructions based on your chosen calendar), including you preference for how often you would like the calendar to be updated with the leave information. 

Leave imported will include:

  • Pending leave
  • Approved leave
  • Declined leave
  • Processed leave

Leave imported will be for your team, which means that user restrictions will apply, e.g. you can only see your teams leave, but not everyone in your organisation if your permissions are set up to only see your team.

Please note: that when you import leave, you will only have one months leave history from the date of import.

Please note: leave links may expire if a new leave link is created, ensure to confirm that your external calendar is up to date.
