Export the Personio Calendar via an iCal link

 

In this article, you will learn how to export the Personio Calendar to Google Calendar, Apple Calendar and Outlook via an iCal link.

 

What can you do with an iCal link?

With Personio, you can export a range of calendar data into popular calendar apps via an iCal link. The calendar exported via iCal link is synchronized automatically, as your calendar application retrieves the current status of your Personio calendar regularly. For each absence period, both the employee's name and the name of the absence type are displayed (such as "[Vacation] John Doe").

Note
When you configure the access rights for your calendar for each employee role, you also decide which calendars an employee can export. Learn how to Configure and manage access to the calendar.

 

Export absence types

The export via iCal link allows two display options in the imported calendar application:

  • One export of multiple absence types: All absence types are displayed in one shared calendar and in the same color.
  • Individual exports for single absence types: Individual absence types are displayed with separate colors and can be activated and deactivated, if needed.

To export absence types from the Calendar, follow these steps: 

  1. Navigate to Calendars.
  2. Click on Export.
  3. Choose the absences you want to export in the Calendar type.
  4. Define the Department that you wish to export absences for.
  5. Click Generate Link.
