Calendar in the Mobile App

How does the calendar function in the mobile app?

Purpose: Learn how to use the calendar in the mobile app to quickly view who is out of the office and any upcoming holidays. 


Your employees will only see calendar information if their access allows them to see the Who's Out widget in your BambooHR account. You can find instructions on how to adjust employee access to this by clicking here.

To access the calendar, tap Calendar on Home.

For Managers: On the day before and day of a celebration (employee anniversary or birthday), you will see a widget* on Home announcing the big day for your employee. It could be one event or multiple events for one or more employees who report to you. If there is only one employee celebration, you can click on the widget to go to their employee profile. If there are multiple employee celebrations, you can click on the widget to go to Celebrations in the calendar (see below).

Additionally, you will receive a push notification on the employee's celebration date at 9 AM (in the company's time zone) to remind you to celebrate.

*To see this widget, you must have access to the Celebrations widget on Home through Access Level Settings.

The calendar in the mobile app allows you to see who will be out of the office. More specifically, you will find the following details:

  1. Dots: It indicates dates when employees will be out of the office or a company holiday.
  2. Toggle: When tapping on the calendar from Home, you will automatically see the Who's Out information. You can tap Celebrations to see upcoming employee anniversaries and birthdays in the company (see below).
  3. Daily Details: This shows Who's Out details for the selected date.
  4. Who's Out: This shows an out-of-office overview of the month selected.


Tap the text or email button to send the employee a nice celebration message.
