Subscribing to Calendars
Subscribing to a calendar gives you the ability to see events alongside your own personal schedule. Once you have an account with Google, subscribing to Hebrew Academy calendars is simple. Open the Hebrew Academy calendar page in a web page. At the bottom right corner of the calendar is a Google Calendar button. Clicking on this button will give you the option of subscribing to any of HACD’s public calendars.
Subscribing to a calendar lets you read the calendar. You will not be able to make changes to the HACD calendar, but you can copy individual items easily into your own calendar.
The Hebrew Academy calendar is powered by Google Calendar. With this technology comes a whole range of features which can keep you up to date with the goings-on at school. In order to take advantage of most of these features, it will help to have a free Google account.
What else can I do?
In Google Calendar is the option to receive a daily email with a list of scheduled events for the day, or text reminders. Go to your Google Calendar page. On the left side of the screen, hovering over the name of the calendar you would like reminders for causes a triangle to appear. Click the triangle and select Edit Notifications. You will be given the option to receive reminders or a daily agenda via email or text message (SMS). These settings need to be set for each of the calendars for which you would like to receive reminders.
In Google Calendar, you can copy an event from a subscribed calendar to your own calendar, where you can edit details, add notes and invite other people to join you.
