Set up iOS Calendar synchronisation

To synchronise your shifts with the iOS Calendar app first log into the Planday app on your iPhone then follow these steps:

  1. Tap your profile icon

  2. Press Sync with your calendar option

  3. Choose Sync with Calendar option from the list

  4. Press Subscribe when you are asked to add a subscription

  5. You will be shown a preview of your calendar, press Add

Your shifts will now be added to the Calendar app and can be found in the Subscribed section under Calendars. By default, you will also get alerts before your shift starts.


Refreshing the Calendar App

  • Open the Apple Calendar app.

  • Select Calendars at the bottom of the screen.

  • Swipe down on the list to refresh.

If you are experiencing issues with your Calendar app synchronisation, we recommend contacting Apple support.


Synchronising with other calendars via link

To synchronise with other calendar applications, such as Google Calendar, you will first need to retrieve your Planday calendar's URL. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Tap your profile icon

  2. Press Sync with your calendar option

  3. Choose Copy calendar link option from the list

Depending on your calendar of choice, the next step may require you to use a computer to input the calendar sync URL into your calendar. If you are having trouble finding this option in your calendar, it may be worthwhile to seek help with documentation for the calendar software that you are using.

⚠️ Please note that the synchronisation is not instantaneous, and new shifts that you are assigned to may not show right away. As such we recommend using this feature in conjunction with the Planday app itself to keep up to date.
