Amion personal schedules can sync automatically to an iPhone, iPod Touch, a Google
Calendar, Outlook or any other mobile device or calendar that supports online subscriptions.
3. Select your name from the dropdowns and choose Create Schedule.
4. Below the calendar, click the calendar icon you want to sync your personal schedule
Amion will provide you a URL and step-by-step instructions on how to setup your schedule
to sync to your calendar. If you have a calendar not listed as an icon to select,
select any of the icons and copy the provided URL. Then follow your calendar's instructions
for internet or subscribed calendar setup.
Once you've set up the subscription, changes at Amion flow to your calendar automatically.
Amion subscriptions transfer assignments for 300 days in the future and the
two most recent past weeks.
In iCal and some other calendars, you can choose how often the calendar data refreshes.
Choose a reasonable refresh time such as once every few hours.
Google fetches new schedule data 3 or 4 times a day and keeps its own copy of every
subscription calendar. If someone else subscribes to your calendar or you unsubscribe
and resubscribe, Google gives you the copy from its cache; it does not pull new data
from Amion. You cannot force Google to refresh. Changes at Amion can take a few hours
before appearing in Google.
Download your assignments manually
Below your Personal Schedule page, click one of the two links for downloading the
schedule data. The link for Palm PDAs will produce a vCal file. The MS Outlook
link will produce an iCal file and is for Pocket PCs, iPhones, and other handhelds
that sync with MS Outlook.
Click File/Save As, and save the file to your desktop. Give the file an ".ics"
or ".vcs" file extension. Open your calendar program and import the downloaded file.
Imported assignments become events in your calendar. They will not update automatically
when the schedule changes at Amion. To get changes, you must delete Amion shifts from
your calendar and re-download the assignments.
Viewing schedules on your smartphone Access any Amion schedule from your
smartphone's web browser. Create an iPhone app that points straight to your own or
