Sync Events and Schedules to your Google/Apple Calendar

You can sync your 7shifts Schedule and Events to an external calendar (i.e. Google Calendar or Apple's Calendar app). Here are quick steps on how to set it up!

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

Google Calendar

⚠️ 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 feature needs to be set up within your Google account from a web browser or desktop.

Once enabled, you'll be able to see your Events from both a web browser and the Google Calendar mobile app.
  1. In the top navigation bar, select the 'Schedule' tab. Once on the Schedule page, select the wrench.pngtools icon:

     



  2. Click on 'Calendar Sync' from the drop-down menu:
