There are two options for getting CalendarWiz events into your Android. If you want to be able to add and edit events from your phone we recommend using our Mobile App. Otherwise, you can set up a Read-only iCal feed into your Android native calendar. Instructions for both options listed below:
Option 1: CalendarWiz Mobile App allows users to view, add, and edit events in CalendarWiz.
1: There's nothing to download. Simply open your phone browser, which is Safari or Chrome in most cases.
2: Go to your calendar link like the one below. Replace yourcalendaridentifier in the link with your unique calendar name.
3: Select "Mobile" when prompted.
4: Log in with your regular login information.
Mobile Navigation Instructions:
- Add events by tapping the + icon.
- Edit events by tapping event and click Edit in the upper right.
- Filter events by category, just tap the icon.
- Category Colors displayed alongside each event.
- Refresh calendar by tapping the icon.
- Gray dots indicate days with events.
- Tap a day number to view day's events below.
- View events as a list by tapping the list icon.
- Sideways swipe calendar to move month to month.
- Tap event to view details and description.
Option 2: iCal feed into your Android Phone - this will be a READ-ONLY version of your calendar.
Note: In order to set up an iCal feed into your Android Calendar you must have a Gmail account and a calendar administrator must enable the iCal feed in your CalendarWiz calendar.
- Set up an iCal feed from your CalendarWiz Calendar
Login as Administrator > Admin Menu > iCal and RSS Feeds > Check “Check to Enable iCal Feed” > Select categories to include in feed > Save
Use the link below just be sure to replace "yourcalendaridentifier" with your unique calendar name.
Note: only public categories are available for iCal feeds off the calendar. If you also want to include private categories in an iCal feed, follow the link below:
- Set up a CalendarWiz iCal feed to go into Google Calendar
Login to Google Calendar -> Click + and select "Other Calendars” -> Click + to "Add Calendar" or "Add Friends Calendar" > From URL > Paste the CalendarWiz iCal url into the Google URL field > Click [Add Calendar]
You will now see your CalendarWiz events appear on the list of "Other calendars." Click on Settings to change the name of the calendar and other features. Google only refreshes calendar subscriptions every three hours so changes to your CalendarWiz calendar will not appear during this delay period.
Note: You cannot make changes to your CalendarWiz calendar from Google, though you can set reminders for CalendarWiz events in Google.
Troubleshooting: Google is very aggressive in caching iCal feeds. If you are testing feeds or need to force the Google Calendar to refresh your iCal feed, you can add a &foobar=12345 directly to the end of your iCal url. The foobar component of the URL is to "trick" Google into thinking it is a different link than the one it has cached. This should give you a complete update.
