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
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

⚠️ 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.

After using this workaround and enabling this from a web browser, you'll be able to see your schedule on your google account. So your shifts will appear from both a web browser and the Google Calendar mobile app.

1. Sign in to your 7shifts account at app.7shifts.com.

2. From there, go to https://app.7shifts.com/schedules/sync or head to Schedules > the tool icon > Sync.
