Transfer course and examination data to your own calendar

From ZEuS-Wiki english


There are several menu items with course and examination information which offer you the possibility to export appointment data in the iCalendar format (ics). By this, you can automatically transfer data of courses and examinations which you have registered for to your private calendar in order that you will not miss any event.

Depending from the menu item from which you have called the export function, different schedule records will be exported. If you start the process, for example, from your own schedule, all events visible in your timetable will be provided in an export file - every single date of all registered courses and examinations, as well as those you have saved the date for. On the contrary, calling the function out of the course or examination detail view, your file only contains the single dates of all parallel groups available for this event to be transferred to your personal calendar. Naturally, you can delete unnecessary appointment series from your calendar.

Read on to learn the single steps which are essential so that you finally will see the single course or examination dates in e.g. your private Google calendar or in Microsoft Outlook as well - in order to be automatically reminded.

As a last step it is necessary to transfer the appointment data of your saved file into your own calendar. There are no general instructions for this process because it is effected in a different way for each software.


  • Google Calendar: How to import the file into your Google Calendar is a frequently asked question. Look at the Google website to read the instruction for this.
  • Microsoft Outlook: If you would like to import the data to Microsoft Outlook follow the instructions on the Microsoft support homepage.
