Synergist diary integration with iCal and Outlook 2010 onwards

Dave Harvey -

Issue/Requirement: 

Every user in Synergist has a URL to allow diary bookings made in Synergist to be displayed in a calendar application such as iCal or Outlook.  The iCal protocol allows for READ ONLY access to subscribed calendars – no changes to Synergist data can be made via iCal or Outlook.

Solution: 

First obtain your own iCal URL from My calendar and click on the .ics icon:-

After clicking on the .ics icon you will be presented with a screen showing your unique URL:

Copy the entire URL.

 

Apple iCal

To view your diary bookings as a calendar in iCal, open iCal and go to Calendar, subscribe, and paste in the URL from your clipboard and click subscribe:-

Give the calendar a name and set the auto-refresh period as required:-

The new calendar will be available for selection in iCal under subscriptions.

Outlook 2010

To view your diary bookings as a calendar in Outlook you will need to go to File>Info>Account settings>Account settings
