Web calendars: use

 

Displaying the URL

 

To display the distribution URL, right-click on the publication > Display URL.

There are two possibilities, depending on whether or not the Schedule for each resource button is enabled:

  • one URL for all the resources,
ical-url-toutes-ressources
  • one URL per resource.
ical-url-par-ressource

In both cases, you can copy-paste the URL or URLs to distribute them to users.

Synchronising a calendar

 

You can automatically synchronise events from VISUAL PLANNING to your personal Office 365 and/or Google calendar.

To do this, you must first save the provider in the Admin Centre (see ICAL synchronisation Service).

To view the synchronisation URL, right-click on calendar > Synchronize External calendar.

A URL will appear. Copy and save this URL.

The user must then add this address to their calendar (see Calendar subscription above), then connect with their username/password in order for their login authorisation to be saved.
