Feature Release – Calendar Integration

Many busy offices use calendars to keep a track of who’s in the office, so we knew that one of the most useful features within the product to keep a track of holiday leave, would be complete integration with Google Calendar, iCal and Outlook.  You can now see at a glance, without logging in, the people who have taken holiday leave recently.

It’s super simple to get setup, just select Settings > Configure Calendar Integrations, making sure that you’ve got your timezone specified, and we’ll give you a link that you can use within outlook or Google Calendar directly.
