We finally delivered this highly demanded feature to export calendars from ACLS to the external calendar program, Outlook, and Google calendar via internet url. We are releasing this new version from MWAC, and then to entire UNSW fleets. From now onwards, you are able to connect ACLS calendar to Outlook calendar, it is very useful feature so that you can see the future bookings without the need of accessing ACLS.
Here is the brief description of how it works.
- For users (including all staff): my calendar can be exported to outlook, the export url is updated every 5 minutes. In other words, if you add a new booking, within 5 minutes, you can see it on Outlook calendar. Help tips on how to add calendar in Outlook is available.
- For staff only: you are able to export any equipment calendar and also equipment group calendar (multiple facility calendars). The export working mechanism is the same as my calendar. It is provided as part of COREA machine learning in ACLS.
- Outlook normally auto send/receive with all the calendars. If needed, you can manually click the Send/receive all folder button in Outlook to reload the calendar.
- What bookings are included in the export url: only the future bookings from TODAY to the future.
