Calendar sync

Workiz lets you sync your schedule to third party calendars that work with the Ical format.
This includes services like Google calendar and Ical for mac and iPhone.

Sync limitations

Workizs schedule only syncs one way. This means that you can see your jobs, leads and tasks on your third party calendar but not the other way around. Workizs jobs and tasks need more information than the name and location and at this time we do not support two-way syncing.

Setting up

To sync your schedule first, make sure the Calendar sync addon is enabled by navigating to “Add-ons” and turn the “Calendar Sync” option on.

Next, go to your schedule from the left navigation. You should see a new button on top labeled “Calendar sync”.
After clicking this option you should get two options.

1.Get a URL that you can subscribe to from any calendar that allows Ical subscriptions.
You can click the green button next to the URL and copy the address to clipboard.
2.Export your current schedule as an ICS file that you can import to any calendar.
