An Internet Calendar subscription is a URL that you get from a source system and which you can display in a calendar application. Internet Calendar subscriptions are updated automatically.
For each resource we generate a personal iCalendar Link that contains their resource planning data that we continuously update based on resource bookings and resource requests that are created and updated in the Calendar or Planning Board.
You can email the link to a resource from the application Resources. The iCal link is shown and can be copied to your favorite calendar application:
- Microsoft Outlook
- Apple iCal
- Google Calendar
- Lotus Notes
Hint! You can use the iCal for resources planned in Planning board or Calendar. Holiday entries are not included.
If your planning is changed, Timewax updates the iCal file every 5 minutes. The used Calendar program determines how many times this iCal file is read, synchronised. Unfortunately the update rate of each Calendar program can't be controlled by Timewax, but is up to each Calendar provider.
The Google site states, they'll update iCalendars at least every 12 hours (or often). Microsoft states they'll update iCalendars at least each 24 hours.
Internet Calendar subscriptions are set in the Account Settings. Click the Tools menu and then click the Internet Calendars tab. After clicking New you can past the iCalendar link.
The calendar will be updated with the same frequency as fetching new mail. These settings can be found in the settings for Send/Receive in the menu option Options.
The Internet Calendar subscriptions can be added in File, New Calendar Subscription. Paste the iCalendar link in the URL field and click Subscribe. Enter the other information and choose the option Auto-refresh every 5 minutes.
The Internet Calendar subscriptions can be added with the option Add by URL. Paste the iCalendar link in the URL field and click Add Calendar. The calendar will be updated automatically.
The Internet Calendar subscriptions can be added with the Add a Calendar option within Show Calendars. After selecting the option choose iCalendar feed. Paste the iCalendar link in the URL field and click Add Calendar. The calendar will be updated automatically.
In GW8 you can subscribe to an iCalendar feed. When the GroupWise application has been registered you can click on the iCal link option and enter the iCalendar link in the dialog box. After confirming the settings the selected calendar will be available.
