Sharing Your NurseGrid Calendar with Family & Friends

If your family and friends aren't NurseGrid users, you can share your schedule with them through third party apps!

First, make sure you've switched on the "Enable Calendar Sharing" toggle on the Calendar Options screen.

Then, tap "Share NurseGrid Calendar" on the Calendar Options screen.

 On iOS: Turn on the toggles for each of the worksite calendars you'd like to share. Tap "Share" in the top-right corner, then share your calendar via text message or email! The person you're sharing your calendar with will receive a text or email (whatever you sent) with a subscription link. Clicking that link on a mobile device will add the NurseGrid calendar directly to whatever their default calendar app is. To make sure the NurseGrid calendar stays up to date, they'll need to check their device settings and ensure that their calendar app is set to fetch data. If they access their calendar on a computer, they can simply copy and paste the subscription URL (including the webcal:// prefix) you sent them into their calendar app.

 On Android: From there, you'll be able to select the method you'd like to use to send your schedule to your friends and family – just choose whether you'd like to send it via email, text message, or Facebook. The URL will be pasted into a new message or post and you can send it to whoever you'd like to share your calendar with. The recipient will need to go to Google Calendar, click the dropdown arrow next to "Other calendars" on the left side of the screen, and then select "Add by URL." Once the unique calendar URL is pasted here, click "Add Calendar." Your NurseGrid schedule should then be synced with your friend or family member's Google Calendar! Please note that it may take up to 12 hours for schedules to fully sync with third-party calendars.
