While the AttendanceBot calendar is more robust than Gcal or Outlook, AttendanceBot easily integrates with a public or personal Outlook calendar, or a shared/public Google calendar. You'll have the option of subscribing a public calendar to view your team's leave on a shared calendar, or integrating with a personal calendar to automatically block OOO and unavailable time based on the AttendanceBot calendar.

To integrate a calendar start from the options "menu" and select "data & integrations"

Select "Calendar" on the sub-menu

Based on the type of integration you're interested in, use the "Enable" or "Get link" buttons.

  • "Enable" will initiate an Outlook permissions grant allowing a personal calendar sync. Enable will switch to "Disable" if you've already enabled.
  • "Get link" will allow you to copy an ics calendar link, then follow the appropriate steps to subscribe via any calendar of your choice (see below)
