See your event calendar in Google and Outlook!

At long last you can link your Staff Reservations calendar to Google Calendar or your favorite email program. TDs can now enjoy seeing their Staff Reservations trips in their favorite calendar, without having to re-enter information. As soon as you accept an event it will appear in your calendar program. Planner change the dates? No problem, your calendar will update automatically. Planners can see who’s accepted invitations to events just by mousing over an event — those who have committed to work your event will appear in the description.

TDs: Your event link is at the bottom of your events page.
Planners: You’ll see two links at the bottom of your events page: one link for your events, and another link with which you can see all the ongoing events at your company.

To link to Google Calendar, log in to your Google,  go to Calendar, and click the downward triangle next to “Other Calendars” (bottom left corner). Click on Add By Url. Copy the URL from your events page into the box and you’re done.

For Outlook 2007, go to Tools -> Account Settings. Select the Internet Calendars tab, click on New and paste your calendar link in the box. When asked, say Yes to keeping your calendar updated.
