How to Subscribe to My DE Calendars such as your My DE Schedule

The directions immediately below are how to add your class schedule to the iOS Calendar app on an iPad or iPhone:

  1. Use Safari on your iPad/iPhone to Log in to My DE and select Calendar from the top navigation bar.
  2. Click on the Web Cal icon -  - near the upper-right corner of the calendar. A box labeled "WebCal Feed for External Calendar" will appear.
  3. Under My Calendars, tap on the LINK (on the right) that says My Calendars and choose Subscribe for that calendar. Then tap Done and Cancel the WebCal Feed box.
  4. After school starts, your course schedule will now appear in the Apple Calendar but will have a long, unfriendly name. Follow the remaining steps to rename that to reduce confusion later. (If you don't do this, it may get confusing if you add other school calendars such as your athletic schedule.)
  5. Open the iOS Settings app and go to Calendar then Accounts.
  6. Tap Subscribed Calendars then the unfriendly named calendar beginning with d-e.myschoolapp.
  7. Change the Description to something useful like “My DE schedule” then tap Done. Do NOT change the unfriendly name next to Server. 
  8. You will also need to change how often the subscribed calendar gets updates. Follow the remaining steps to do that.
  9. Again in the iOS Settings app, go back to Calendar > Accounts as you did in step 5 above.
  10. Tap Fetch New Data.  Look for the Fetch section at the bottom of that page.
  11. If your Fetch schedule is set to Manually, change it to another setting such as Hourly.

You can also use this to add other My DE Calendars from the Individual Filter feeds page using the directions above.
