This guide will help you to sync your NTU timetable with your Android device, allowing you to view your timetable on the device’s own calendar.
Note: When you first setup your phone you will have been asked to setup or sign in to a Google account. If you did not do this then you will need to now before you complete the instructions in this guide. For help with setting up a Google account on your device see this guide.
In order to sync your NTU timetable with your device, you will first need to sync your NTU timetable with your Google calendar, and then you can proceed to sync your Google calendar with your device. This guide will take you through both of these steps.
To begin, in your PC’s 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
Right-click on “Access Calendar Feed” and select “Copy Shortcut”
Now, go to Google (www.google.co.uk) and click on the “Sign in” button in the top right hand corner
Enter your Google account email and password to sign in
Once signed in, click on the “Calendar” link in the top toolbar
On the Calendar page, on the left hand side of the screen, click on the small drop box to the right of “Other Calendars” and then select “Add by URL”
The “Add by URL” window should come up, in here paste the link you copied from the “Access Calendar Feed” earlier on, and then click on “Add Calendar”
After a moment, your timetable should now be synced into your Google calendar
On your Android device, you may need to add your calendar for it to update with your NTU timetable. To do this, open up your calendar, and then the “Settings”, bringing up this screen
Select the “Calendars” menu, then scroll down and make sure the timetable you just added has green tick beside it
Return to the settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select “Calendar sync”
At the bottom of the screen, tap on the “Sync All” button
Return to your calendar, your NTU timetable should now be present alongside any other calendars you may have made available on your device, and therefore your setup is now complete.
This service is a subscription to your NTU timetable. This means that you will be dependent on how often your Android 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.
