Adding A Live View of your Timetable to Email and Mobile Phones

 

Beginning from the start of the 2013/14 Academic Year we are introducing a new way to allow you to view your timetable on a mobile phone or via your student email account using an iCalendar feed.

This service is an improvement on the existing PDF timetable you can view in MAP because it will allow any changes made to your timetable to be reflected on your calendar immediately, without having to wait overnight ( as is the case with your PDF timetable on MAP ).

Don’t worry, this is an alternative way to view your timetable and you will always be able to view your timetable as a PDF document using the links on your Student Homepage in My Aston Portal (MAP), even if you don’t choose to subscribe to your timetable feed. This new service is completely free for you to use.

You can either choose to add your timetable to your student email account or add your timetable to an alternative software package or email/calendar service. To find out how to do this, use the links below.


Once you have added your teaching timetable to your student email account, you can also transfer your email and calendar across to your mobile phone. For more information and instructions on how to do this, visit our student e-mail support pages in the Student IT Guide at http://www.aston.ac.uk/ict/studentguide/email/#mobiles .

Adding Your Teaching Timetable to a Student Email Account 

If you wish to add your teaching timetable to your Student Email account calendar, you can do so by following the steps below.

  1. If you have not received your unique link by email already, visit our timetable subscription web page at https://www.aston.ac.uk/livetimetable and enter your student email address. If entered correctly, you will be emailed a unique hyperlink to your teaching timetable. Please do not share this link as it is a direct link to your teaching timetable.

  2. Log into your student email account and view the email that you have received from us. Select the link in the centre of the email that begins with webcal://celcatweb.aston.ac.uk/livetimetable/... and select Copy to copy it.

Adding your teaching timetable to My Calendars will mean that it can be transferred to your mobile phone, should you want to. If you add your teaching timetable to Other Calendars, it will not transfer to any other devices, like your mobile phone.
