Instructions - iCalendar Gatway (.ics / .iCal):
Requirements:Data-Gateway is an optional additional function in CCalendar. It has to be activated by your CCalendar administrator.
In CCalendar you can display appointments from other calendar-systems by .iCal-Data-Gateway live*.
* The URL will be requested cyclically max. all 15 minutes from the source.
Tip: By this way you can include appointments of partner-organizations (which use CCalender independent from your organization) live* in your CCalendar-views!
With the iCalendar gateway you can unlock appointment data for other calendar systems (that also support the iCalendar format like e.g. MS-Outlook, Google Calendar, iCal, iPhone, Android, Mozilla Lightning, ...).
Live Data Export:
For that simply configure your desired appointment selection under the menu item "iCalendar" and copy the displayed URL respectively to the target calendar system.
However, note that a maximum of 10 updates per hour are possible per user.
You can also find an implementation guide for several frequently used systems under the menu item "iCalendar" when logged into CCalendar.
Data Export of single Appointments:
Single appointments in that way, can also be transferred to other systems. Therefore simply click on the link "Download as iCalendar Entry" in the appointment details and send the data to the target system that way.
Data Export of current Appointment Selection:
You can also retrieve a currently displayed appointment selection one-time in iCalendar format with a click on the link "iCal" in the appointment list and use it in another system.
