You can subscribe to any Ethnio calendar and add your schedule to your gCal, iCal, or Outlook. You can also share the ics. link with your team. Please keep in mind the refresh rate needs to be set by gCal, iCal, etc - sometimes can be as long as 8 hours. This is not controlled by Ethnio - we updated the calendar URL feed every few seconds:
The workaround to get faster updates from Ethnio depends on the calendar you're using, but Outlook and iCal are easy to find. gCal is the most difficult - you can try adding ?nocache to the end of the calendar URL:
Just click the Subscribe button on any calendar (see below). Remember that every screener has its own unique calendar, so each subscription will be unique. That way, if you have multiple studies running at the same time you can see them all in your calendar.
Show all open Interview Spots
You may not want to clutter up your calendar with all the potential interview spots, in which case toggle this setting to "off" before you copy the calendar links.
Please note, this subscription is one-way sync only. Meaning it will not update dynamically back and forth between your calendar and Ethnio. For more in-depth calendar management check out Ethnio Master Calendar.
Privacy and Security of Participant Data
There are two ways Ethnio secures calendar subscription feeds for users:
- Hiding personally identifiable information (PII): ensuring datasets that may contain PII do not fall into the wrong hands, and preventing inadvertent disclosure when sharing ICS links.
- Automatic token hashing: protecting access to your information with token refreshes. In the event of a security breach, this adds another level of protection to your information.
