Chapter 8. Using iCal > Viewing Calendars Online

Viewing Calendars Online

When you publish a calendar from iCal on your .Mac account, you can view it using a Web browser. The corollary to this is that you can view any published iCal calendar using a Web browser, provided you know the name of the calendar and the member name of the person publishing it.

To view an iCal calendar online

1.
Open your Web browser.

2.
In the location field, enter http://ical.mac.com/membername/calendarname and press Return—replacing membername with the .Mac member name of the person publishing the iCal calendar and replacing calendarname with the name of the calendar you want to view.

The calendar opens in your Web browser, showing the Week view by default.

3.
To view the calendar one day at a time, click the Day button (Figure 8.17).

Figure 8.17. Click the Day button to change the calendar to the Day view.


The calendar switches to Day view (Figure 8.18).

Figure 8.18. A calendar's Day view focuses on events for a single day—letting you see how things are supposed to play out, minute by minute.


4.
To view the calendar one month at a time, click the Month button.

The calendar switches to Month view (Figure 8.19).

Figure 8.19. A calendar's Month view displays an entire month at a time, with a summary of the month's scheduled events at the bottom.


5.
To view today's calendar, click the Today button.

The calendar for the day you're working in opens.

6.
To view the calendar one week at a time, click the Week button.

The calendar switches to Week view (Figure 8.20).

Figure 8.20. The Week view (a calendar's default view) shows the week at a glance, also providing a time frame for each event—a nice cross between the Day and Month views.
