Sync Schedule to Google Calendar or iCal

Here are the quick steps at getting your 7shifts Schedule synced with your external calendar.

SKIP AHEAD TO:
Google Calendar (from a desktop only)
iCal - From a desktop
iCal - From the 7shifts mobile app
⚠️With this sync, the Schedule data is being pulled by your calendar application or service. 7shifts does not push the Schedule data, but rather, your application (Google or iCal) is requesting this information from 7shifts. The frequency of this sync will depend on your calendar application, which may update between every 2 to 12 hours roughly.

Please refer to the 7shifts web app or the mobile app ( iOS / Android) directly for the most current information about your shifts.


Google Calendar (from a desktop only)

⚠️Please note that due to limitations with the Google Calendar mobile app, calendar sync with Google cannot be enabled directly from the 7shifts mobile app. This will need to be set up within your Google account from a desktop or web browser.

1. From your 7shifts account, go to https://app.7shifts.com/schedules/sync or Schedules > the 'Tools' icon > Sync.

2. Here you will see the URL link you need to add to your Google Calendar, in order to pull in the shifts that are Scheduled within 7shifts. Copy this link.

3. From your Google account, open your Google Calendar and head to the far left menu.

4. Next to 'Other calendars,' click on the ' + ' button.

5. Select 'From URL' and paste the link you copied earlier. 

6. Once you click 'Add Calendar', you should now see your Schedule on your Google Calendar.
