You can easily display LabArchives Scheduler events in external calendars like Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar. To do this, you’ll need to subscribe to calendars.
There is a calendar for each individual Resource, for each Schedule of Resources, and for all Reservations. Any one of these calendars can be made public.
To enable Schedule and Resource level calendar subscriptions, simply allow public visibility when managing the Schedule or Resource. To turn on personal calendar subscriptions, open Schedule > My Calendar. On the right side of the page you will find a link to Allow or Turn Off calendar subscriptions.
To subscribe to a Schedule calendar, open Schedule > Resource Calendar and select the Calendar view you want to see. Note that, while on any calendar page, you can view the Calendar for All Reservations in your organization, all reservations on a specific schedule, or all reservations for a specific resource.
This means that any of these Calendars can be made publicly viewable. For more information on the Calendar view, click here. Once you have selected the calendar view you want to see, you will find a link to subscribe to the current calendar on the right side of the page.
Open Google Calendar settings. Click the Calendars tab. Click the + button under “Other Calendar” and click “Browse calendars of interest”. Click "From URL”. Paste in the URL printed under the Subscribe to this Calendar link.
Calendar client (Outlook, iCal, Mozilla Lightning, Evolution)
In most cases, simply clicking the Subscribe to this Calendar link will automatically set up the subscription in your calendar Client. For Outlook, if it does not automatically add, open the Calendar view, then right click My Calendars and choose Add Calendar > From Internet. Paste in the URL printed under the Subscribe to this Calendar link.
