Get FOBS Events on Your Smartphone Calendar

Do you keep missing the important FOBS events?
Not sure what is coming up and if it is relevant to you?

Well FOBS are pleased to announce our iCal Feed!

Add to My Calendar

So what does it do?

As we add events to our calendar at www.bds-fobs.org.uk subscribers will be updated, it is really that simple!
If we alter or change an event you will get a notification (if you have these setup on your device) to let you know what has changed.

How do I subscribe?

Unfortunately this is the most complicated part!

Step 1: Click on the Add to My Calendar Button <<< the orange one right there <<< (or the one just a bit further up ^^^)

Step 2: Confirm you want to Subscribe.

Yes it is that difficult!

So What now?

We generally have our meetings on the 1st Friday of each month (during term time), at this time we will discuss and add up and coming events, these will then be added to our Calendar (FOBS Events), this is what provides the feed to your device.

 

But I don't want to see these in my calendar now...!
