Sync your schedule to your mobile device

When shifts are assigned they are visible in blue on your schedule. What you may not know is that they are also available in a format that imports into your online calendar or mobile device.

There are 2 parts to syncing your schedule. They first you need do only once. The second you do for each device you want to sync.

Part 1: Get your sync URL.

Once logged into the Scheduler site (scheduler.ashbournecfr.org) click on your user name in the top right corner to access your profile.
