Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could synchronize your personal calendar with your FMC teaching calendar? Well, now you can! In addition to accessing your calendar by logging into your account, you can also subscribe to your FMC calendar feed, to view all your lesson and event details in real time While this makes it easier to view your calendar without logging into your account, modifications can only be made from your FMC calendar since it is a one-way sync.

Calendar is a standard format used to share calendar data between programs.  It's used and supported by a wide range of calendar programs including Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Calendar, Mozilla Thunderbird and more.

This feature allows you to enable Calendar feeds for your account and for your employees so that you or your employees can subscribe to events from your Forbes Music calendar in other calendar programs. Calendar Feeds return events 2 weeks prior to the current date and 12 weeks into the future.

Feed Filters

You can further control the feeds by adjusting the filter parameter on the end of the feed url. The available filter parameters are "all", "lessons", "other", "other_shared".  The default is set to "all."

All – displays lessons and other non-teaching events from the calendar

Lessons – displays only lessons

Other – displays only non-teaching events belonging to the company or employee.

Other Shared - this setting is will display any non-teaching events.

You may want to add separate feeds to your calendar program for lessons and other events to make it easier to distinguish between the two feeds.

Adding Calendar Feed to Calendar Programs

You can read the instructions for your calendar program to find out how to subscribe to a Calendar feed.

Note about Google Calendar: Google Calendar updates calendar subscriptions infrequently and does not support manually refreshing a calendar feed. For this reason, you should not rely on Google Calendar if you require up-to-date events in your calendar.
