Schedule out of office time with Google Calendar


Product tier: Available for all subscription tiers

When scheduling an interview in Greenhouse Recruiting, Google Calendar's out of office event isn't recognized unless the event is set to last all day. 

To ensure team members don't schedule interviews during your out of office time, create all day events on your Google Calendar.

To ensure that your time out of office is recognized by Greenhouse Recruiting, create an all day event. When selecting the event's time, check All day.
