Organize training sessions around employees' schedules
Automate training schedules
Training sessions are critical to helping employees develop their skills, work towards their objectives, and improve their product knowledge. But finding the best time to get busy employees in a room together – along with someone to train them – is difficult.
Building calendar integration into your training booking system allows you to connect to the calendars of staff, trainers, and coaches. You can even automate the organization or training scheduling with the help of calendar sync.
Access availability in real time
Our Availability API syncs with your booking system so that you can see the times when all required participants are free. It’s then easy to ensure that the training session doesn’t conflict with team meetings or absences.
Staff availability is updated in real time. If an unexpected event gets in the way of your planned session, your system is notified and can propose the next time slot when everyone is available. Calendars instantly reflect any changes.
Personio is building an innovative HR management and recruiting solution for HR departments, managers and employees. Real-time calendar sync is crucial to ensuring it fits seamlessly into both their working and personal lives.

Everything (and everywhere) you need
You can authorize access to the calendars of an entire organization using Enterprise Connect.
The availability of everyone within an organization is accessible when it’s used with our Availability API. Employees can seamlessly book meetings between anyone in the organization, and even access the calendars of bookable resources such as meeting rooms, screens, or parking spaces.
Connect to external calendars
Bringing in external speakers can make a huge difference to your training course. Using Cronofy it’s possible to connect to the calendars of external coaches and mentors. A training session can then be booked automatically, no matter what calendar service they use.
If a trainer can no longer attend the training session, they can cancel or reschedule it from within their own calendar and Cronofy will notify your booking system.
If the organizer needs to send an external trainer a one-off calendar invite, they can generate a Smart Invite. These look like traditional ICS files but your software can track if the invite has been accepted, declined, or deleted. This confirms that the trainer has received the invite and will be present, avoiding any conflicts in their calendars, too.
Cronofy took something that looked incredibly daunting and made it easy. We were looking at writing custom integrations for a few calendar services, but by using Cronofy we were able to connect to several in far less time. They have libraries for many commonly used languages which saved us from writing any of the boilerplate networking code, and their notification channels mean we get updates as they happen rather than needing to poll for changes.
