Public calendar permissions
Natural HR provides a calendar feature which allows employees to view their own as well as other employees' time off and training events.
If the calendar is set to 'Public', users can be allowed to decide whether or not to filter out their calendar to only show entries for their 'Department', 'Site' or 'Manager'.
Admin level users are able to define this filter for the public calendar at the highest level, rather than giving the employee the option, by going to
Important note - One thing to take into consideration before making your calendar public is the tool tip
'If you choose PUBLIC all users in the company including employees will be able to view all calendar items such as time off and training events'
