Sync with your work calendar

Office Shifts allows you to connect with your work calendar. By integrating your work calendar, you can book meeting rooms and view all your upcoming events and event attendees. 


Syncing your calendar

Syncing with your calendar is a relatively simple process. To enable it, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to Office Shifts, either through the app or the website (https://shifts.mapiq.com).
  2. You will encounter a welcome message to enable the calendar connection if it's your first time logging in after an update or feature release. Select Connect calendar.
  3. If you do not see this message, go to Your Profile and scroll down until you see the Calendar synchronization option and toggle the button.
  4. After pressing the Connect your calendar button or toggling the Calendar synchronization option, you will have successfully synced your work calendar.
    The administrators are required to test the integration prior to enabling it for the rest of the organization. If the test fails, the integration can not be accessed. If you do not see the Calender synchronization button, this means that the calendar integration is not enabled for your organization.
    Additionally, on the first release, this functionality will only be possible through the web version of the app, not the mobile version. It will be released shortly after. 

What do I give consent to

When integrating your work calendar, Office Shifts uses existing user permissions. In doing so, Office Shifts cannot access anything you have not shared according to the policies set by your organization within the work calendar. This includes all previously configured policies or booking rules. For example, if you attempt to book a room that you are restricted from joining, the app will reject your request, and your meeting will not be added to the meeting room calendar. 

By consenting, Office Shifts can access all events from the user-owned calendars and can create new events in these calendars. Office Shifts does not have access to the calendars of non-consenting users, nor can it access shared calendars that the user has access to. However, if those users attend a meeting in the user’s calendar, Office Shifts can see some of their details, such as display name, email address, and attendance status.

Office Shifts does not store calendar data. The integration ensures that work agendas remain the primary source of the calendar data. If a user revokes their consent, then Office Shifts will no longer have access to that user’s calendar data.
