This guide will help you to sync your NTU timetable with your Apple device, allowing you to view your timetable on the device’s own calendar.
To begin, in your Apple device select the Safari browser, navigate to your NTU Timetable either in NOW or on the Staff Portal, and select “Subscribe to iCal”.
If you are brought to the NOW Sign-on screen, enter your NTU username and password as normal.
You should then be taken to the following screen
Tap on the “Access Calendar feed” link, this will bring up the following dialogue window
Tap on “Subscribe”, a dialogue window informing you that the calendar has been added should appear
If you then tap on the “View Events” option, you will be taken to your calendar screen, which should now show your NTU timetable as well as any other calendars you may have set up on your device.
Setting refresh period
To ensure your device is always showing your current NTU timetable, please check how often your device is checking for updates.
To do this go to:
Settings the Mail, Contacts, Calendars
Tap to select Fetch New Data
Tap to select NTU timetable
Under select schedule make sure that ‘Fetch’ is selected.
Go back to the Fetch New Data page
Scroll down to the Fetch settings
Select one of the schedules listed
If ‘Manually’ is selected, your NTU timetable will only update when you open up the Calendar app
That is the setup complete.
You can also add reminders for events e.g. lectures. To do this:
Open Settings and tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars
Set your default alerts for each of the types listed
Select Events and then choose your reminder time
This service is a subscription to your NTU timetable. This means that you will be dependent on how often your Apple device will update your Calendar, and your connection to the Internet or a 3G network.
If you are in any doubt about the accuracy of your NTU Timetable, please consult your timetable directly within NOW.
