An electronic calendar is available from different providers and it is an electronic version of a calendar. Usually such software provides an appointment book and contact list. Leave can be exported to an electronic calendar.
Once subscribed to the leave, your calendar application will pull update information. Therefore this process only needs to be done once, not each time you publish your leave. Great for displaying the leave on site, and not having to print updated leave.
Examples of electronic calendars are Google Calendar, Apple Calendar and Microsoft Outlook, and these applications are usually available for both computers and portable devices.
It is the responsibility of the calendar application to "pull new data" from Easy Employer. In some calendar applications you can control the interval it updates, (or) you can perform a refresh, (or) send and receive to pull new data to your calendar application (from Easy Employer).
Depending on your organisation configuration you may (or may not) have access to this feature. If in doubt, please contact your immediate leader.
