    Hi Chris,

    Just to clarify your suggestion.... would you like new events when scheduled  to be inserted into your outlook calendar?

    I think a very nice idea is to add ICT functionality for Events, where a user can embed the event session dates with his personal calendar, and therefore get notifications accordingly.

    Here is the current plan surrounding Calendar Integration with Outlook (other other iCal compatible calendars)

    1. For users of Administrate (using the application), we'll suppor Calendar Feeds which you can subscribe to via Outlook or your phone, and will update according to changes made within Administrate.  This will require an Administrate login, and work a lot like using an Exchange server does - an event gets updated, the changes are pushed to your phone, for example.
    2. For delegates (students) who have registered on an event, they'll receive an .iCal attachment in the confirmation email that's sent, which will let them double click and add a static event to their calendar, no subscription or login required.  If an event changes, we'll re-push via email a new .iCal attachment.  
    We're excited to get these changes out, hopefully by the end of the year!

    Will the iCal feeds include details about sessions other than dates (duration, instructors, session name etc...) ?

    Hi Angela - thanks for checking in.  We've had a bit of a delay on this as you can see, but we're just a few weeks away from rolling this feature out.  If you'd like, I can make sure you're on a list of people we contact for feedback and you might be able to test this with us prior to the wide release.  Thanks for your patience!

    This will be really useful functionality for us too. As we're entirely Mac OS and iOS, we'd be happy to test it from that perspective too.
