Be on top of your upcoming schedules by syncing and aligning shifts with your Google Calendar.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. You must have humanity application downloaded and the application requires 4.4 and up android to be compatible with the application.
  2. You must have access to the third-party calendar of your choice (for the purposes of this article, we’ll be using the Google Calendar).
  3. Calendar applications typically retrieve Humanity schedules on a regular interval. Users usually have different options for how often their applications will retrieve the data (ranging from a matter of minutes to hours).Note: Some calendars, like Google Calendar, do not allow users to dictate this fetching frequency. Depending on the settings it may take up to 24 hours for changes in the schedule to reflect on your synced calendar.
