Use our feed generator to easily create an unlimited number of calendar feeds that allow you to share your companies leave data in either Outlook® or Google®.

You can create feeds for the whole company, a department or an individual member of staff, then allow staff members to subscribe to the feeds. Staff members can visit the Tools section to find feeds that you have made available to them. 

Staffing calendars can be shared to staff outside of WhosOff by setting up and managing Calendar Feeds, by following the steps below you will be able to share this information with other members in your company.

Important Note: It is possible for staff members to share the link outside the organisation and also for staff members who have left to still be able to access the calendar feeds. 

  • Login to your WhosOff Account.
  • Click on the "Administration" tab.
  • Under Setup/Alerts/Feeds click on 'Manage Calendar Feeds'.
  • You will then be presented with the feeds that have been setup for your company (you may have none at this stage).
  • On the right hand side is a form to setup new feeds 'Create New Calendar', complete this form supplying the following information:
