Humanity provides convenient iCal sync URLs which allow you to easily sync your Humanity schedule(s) alongside your other events in applications like iCal, Google Calendar or Apple Calendar on your mobile devices.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. As Google Calendar fetches data from third parties in variable intervals, schedule updates may take some time to show up on your calendar.
  2. If Google Calendar is not the app of your choice, you can also 'Sync Schedule with Apple Calendar.'
  3. The sync feature is also available for iOS and Android devices.

Sync Schedule(s) with Google Calendar

Step 1: Click the 'ShiftPlanning' module > Click the 'arrow' icon tab > Click 'Schedule Sync' tab as shown in Image 1.
