ITed's KAMAR Portal hosting can provide access to the ICS calendars that KAMAR can generate. These can then be subscribed to in your calendar software. e.g Google Calendar.
There are a number of steps that you or your the person that manages your IT manager will need to complete.
Requisites and Assumptions
Assumption: Calendar location is F:\KAMAR_Exports\ics\
Assumption: The FileMaker server is Windows. If you are using OS X please contact us
The IIS site "FMWebSite" is running on port 80. Depending on how FMS was installed this may be different
- Do not share the teacher calendar URL publicly
- Append a random string to the teacher URL. so that it cannot be guessed (47dsh48dSF in out examples)
First we will need to create a virtual directory in IIS that points at the calendar location (F:\KAMAR_Exports\ics\ in our example)
1. Open IIS Manager from Administrative Tools
Or Start > Run > inetmgr
4. Adding a virtual directory
Choose "Add Virtual Directory". Set the Alias to "ics" and the Physical Path to the calendar location from earlier
5. Verify local access
Open the browser on the server and enter http://localhost/ics/school-events.ics (where school-events.ics is the file name of the "Parent Calendar" configured in KAMAR)
The calendar file should load in the browser
Setup on the server is now completed
There is some configuration we need to complete at our end to make the calendars public, so let us know when you have completed the IIS configuration.
Your ICS files will then be available at your myStudent domain. For example
