This article covers how to integrate your ClockShark schedule with your personal calendar.
This allows company administrators to view upcoming jobs directly from their Google (or other) calendar, and allows employees to bring their schedules right to their mobile phone. The possibilities really are endless, but you're welcome to try counting them. 😃
How Does It Work?
1. Go to the Schedules or My Time Clock screen and click the "Subscribe" button.
Although you can find the "Subscribe" button on both the Schedules and My Time Clock screens, only the personal schedule of the logged-in user is available from the My Time Clock screen, since this is the employee view of the website. Administrators can allow employees to subscribe to other coworkers' calendars by enabling their Manager Permissions for viewing and editing schedules.
2. Click to choose the employee schedules you would like to subscribe to. You can select the schedule for an individual employee, or all employees. You can also choose by Department or Location.
3. Click "Generate URL".
4. Copy and use this URL to import your ClockShark schedule as a calendar into Google, Yahoo, etc.
Once you are subscribed to a calendar, it will automatically update and refresh to reflect any changes made in ClockShark. Please note that these updates sometimes can take more than 24 hours.
Below are specific instructions for each calendar type. 🤓
