New Smokin Mils Google Calendar

Post by Natsu on 12/1/2014, 7:23 pm

Announcing the new Smokin Mils Event Calendar.

Starting today we will now be using Google Calendar for our event calendar. This new calendar not only has a better layout than the previous calendar, it also gives you the option to now receive either Mobile (there are 2 methods for which you can receive mobile reminders from Google calendar; either via SMS, or by syncing your Google calendar with your phone's calendar), Browser or Email reminders about events if you have a Google+ account.

Note: All event times are in GMT. If you add it to your own Google+ Calendar account then they will appear there in your own timezone.

Getting Started
Syncing Google Calendars With Your Iphone Or Android Device

Iphone:

Android:
The methods for syncing Google Calendar with your android device vary depending on which version of android you have, so for instructions on how to sync it with your version of android head over to this link.



Linking Google Calendar With Your Mobile Number (skip if you don't want to receive SMS reminders).

Otaining Your Country Code:

Sometimes when entering your phone number to receive SMS updates, the text may not be sent, if this happens to you then you have to enter your country code before the number. To obtain your country code head to this link then:
1: Make sure that the box in "Step 1" conatains any location other than yours and the box in "Step 2" has your location, then Enter your number (the box under step 3):

Note: Wait atleast 15 minutes before assuming that the text has not been sent, and also make sure to double check your number while entering it.

Definitely WAY better than the previous one we had and used, now I can view events in the form of GMT +8 timezones and not having to add another 8 hours to every event. Not only that, but I can view upcoming events on the go if I am not home using the computer. Razz +Rep for you

It hasn't been updated for the past few days yeah, but it will be used again shortly. In the meantime please check the clan events section(this section) for updates rather than calendar Smile.
