This section covers the instructions to subscribe to a standard calendar version of your child’s planner.
You might prefer gaining full access to your child’s planner directly through Studyo as well as receive weekly emails on their tasks and schedule, so we invite you to refer to the following sections on these more advanced tools:
Having access to a calendar version is useful in a few scenarios:
- To combine the planner with your personal and family calendars in one place
- To view the calendar on a device which does not run Studyo such as Android Phones (tablets are supported via the web), Windows phones or Blackberry.
- To leverage built-in calendar tools on iOS devices such as the day widget.
Subscribing to a calendar view of your child’s planner
1. On your child’s device, go to the Settings menu (gear) and tap the sharing icon next to the configuration for their school
2. Send the link to yourself via email
Mac, iOS and Windows
3a. When you receive the email, CLICK the link to subscribe to the calendar
If you use standard built-in calendars such as Outlook on Windows or Calendar on Mac OS or iOS, simply click on the provided link and be subscribed to the calendar. It will then update when your child changes it.
Android & Google Calendar
3b. When you receive the email, COPY the provided link
Android phones actually use Google Calendar to manage calendar subscriptions. So you can follow the same instructions. If you are using an Android tablet, you can also create a parent account using the web version of Studyo which works fine on such devices.
4. Go to Google Calendar in your web browser
5. Select “Add by URL” in the Other Calendars section
6. Paste the URL you copied from the email and click “Add Calendar”
Details on the calendar version of the planner
Calendars are more restricted than Studyo in what kind of information they can display. We’ve made it as clear as possible for you to have access to the information.
In all views, the Day # is displayed in the header of every day
The title of each class indicates how many tasks are not yet marked as done and the total number of tasks on that day
If an exam occurs on a day, a star is displayed in the title
The Agenda view is a nice way to look at the upcoming week:
Additionally, if you wish to see the list of tasks in more detail, you can click on “More details” in Google calendar or double-click on your calendar event on your desktop calendar.
