Calendar in the Mobile App

How does the Calendar Function in the Mobile App?

Purpose: Learn how to quickly see who is out of the office as well as any upcoming holidays by utilizing the calendar in the mobile app. 


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

To access the calendar, tap the "Calendar" button on Home.

If you are a manager, on the day before and day of a celebration (employee anniversary or birthday), you’ll see a widget* on the home screen announcing the big day for your employee. It could be announcing one event or multiple events for one or more employees that report to you. If there is only one employee celebration, you can click on this widget to go to the employee's profile. If there are multiple celebrations for employees, you can click on this widget to be taken to celebrations in the calendar (see below).

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

*In order 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. Specifically, you will find the following :

  1. Dots: Indicate dates when employees will be out of the office or a Company Holiday.
  2. Toggle: When tapping on the calendar from the home screen, you will automatically see the who's out information. You can tap celebrations to see upcoming employee anniversaries and birthdays for all employees in the company (see bow).
  3. Daily Details: Who's Out detail for the specific date selected.
  4. Who's Out?: An out of office overview for the month selected.


Simply tap the text or email button to send the employee a nice message to celebrate.
