Calendar Sync


What is the Calendar Sync and how to use it

The calendar sync is a way to pull across information from within the breathe absence calendar to an external calendar.

You can manage calendar subscriptions under Configure > Settings > Calendar Subscriptions

There are two ways you can use the breathe calendar sync:

Manage centrally

If you elect to manage your calendar subscriptions centrally, it is NOT necessary to have the internal calendar switched on and therefore means the HR user is in control of the calendar, this is generally used to import all holiday for the entire company into one main calendar or into a departmental calendar.

Allowing employees to manage their own calendars

However, if you want to enable employees to sync their own calendars with breathe, you will need to ensure that the calendar is switched on within your breathe account. This is because the URL for syncing such calendars can only be accessed by employees from the calendar view itself.

To switch on the internal calendar, go to Configure > Settings > Change what employees can see and do > tick 'calendar':
