Calendar subscriptions for individual users

Easily integrate your absence.io leaves into Outlook, iCal or Google Calendar with our calendar feeds. Currently we support the integration for a single user, a team, a department, a location or the entire company. This article explains how to setup a calendar subscription for an individual user.

Click here to learn more about updating your calendar subscription links for the whole account. These links will sync all absences of an account.

  • You can find the link for the single user integration in the respective profile under "Integrations" (in the left sidebar):

  • You can find the calendar feed for teams, departments and location in the respective overview screen, e.g. "Department Overview".
  • Moreover, you can now choose to generate a feed with the respective settings for either Admins or Employees. The Admin feed includes any specific comments regarding an absence, whereas the Employee feed does not show such comments.
