Export and share live to Outlook, Google, Apple and other calendars with a live calendar feed from your schedule?

Do you want to view your events in another calendar like Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, or on a simple webpage?

Schedules can be shared and viewed remotely for each resource in any other calendar tools that support iCalendar. Any changes to the resources schedule will be automatically updated in the remote calendar.

From the Account menu in the top right, choose Account Settings, then Groups and Resources. Click the Resource you want to share, then from the Sharing tab you can copy the iCalendar Link, then add to it in your favourite calendar tool. See below for steps on subscribing for some common calendar tools. You can also open the iCalendar Browser Link in any browser and see a list of the events for the resource on a webpage.

Note: The older version 1 iCal links includes a hash of the password and permissions of the User that is logged in and supplying the iCal link. Changing the password for this User will stop any previous iCal feeds from working created by this user.

Add the iCal link to view your Schedule It events in your:
Outlook Online
Outlook Desktop
Google Calendar or Android Device
iPhone or iPad

Adding subscribed calendars to Android

On your Android device, you may have to clear the existing calendars and re-sync the data for a new calendar to show up.
Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Calendar -> Clear Data
then Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Calendar Storage -> Clear Data

Wait a few minutes and you should be able to see the new calendar. If it does the new calendar does not show up, also do the following:
Settings / Accounts & sync -> select your account, uncheck the 'Sync Calendar' option

Wait a few minutes and re-check the Sync Calendar option to see

Refreshing your Google/Outlook Calendar

If you subscribed to Schedule It by adding as an Internet Calendar, then we update the link live and instantly but we have no control over how often your calendar wants to check for the changes. In our link we ask your calendar to refresh its stored information at least once per hour.

Unfortunately Google doesn't refresh its calendar subscriptions in real time like Apple iCal, Microsoft Outlook, and most others do, and there's no way to force a refresh of a subscribed calendar in Google, you just need to wait for them. Google has stated that they refresh calendar feeds 'every few hours' but in our experience it's a good bit less often than that initially. For your first update this can be overnight, but many report this gets quicker and quicker as they see the file is being updating regularly. To reload a feed during testing you can unsubscribe from the file, then subscribe again adding a random number to the end of the link each time so Google thinks its a new file.

Notes: The number of shared calendars that can be created is a ratio of the number of licenses you have and the account type, e.g. With 1 Professional license you can share 6 of your users/resources publicly. (Basic = 1:1, Standard/Startup = 3:1, Professional/Business = 6:1, Enterprise = 10:1). Only 1 week of historical events and future events are exported, and up to a maximum number of events based on the maximum feed size permitted.
