View your Lotusphere Schedule on your Apple iPhone and iPod touch

by Volker Weber

Yes, it is true. Lotus iNotes now supports the iPhone and the iPod touch (using WiFi). Since WiFi hotspots will be available throughout the hotels at Lotusphere, you can stay updated with your iPod touch too! This is the new ultralite feature. All you need to do is point your device to the following URL while you're attending Lotusphere (please replace 'XXXXXX.nsf' with your mail file number):

www.ls09.info/mail/XXXXXX.nsf/iNotes/Mail/?OpenDocument&Form=m_HomeView

Just login and navigate to the first date of Lotusphere: January 18, 2009. Then just bookmark that on your device for easy viewing later.

Hmmh. What if I could just download the schedule as an iCal file? I would not need to login every time I want to look at my schedule.

One of the enhancements we have made to the Lotusphere Agenda Session Scheduler application this year is the ability to add your Lotusphere Schedule to your own default calendar so you can synchronize it with your smartphone and carry it with you while you are attending Lotusphere. We do this by giving you the ability to create an iCalendar file that can be imported into your own iCalendar compliant calendar application.

See, you only have to ask. :-) There is a small problem however. I won't be able to see the general events. Lotusphere has them, and you can view them online:

Check out your Lotusphere Mail iNotes calendar in Full mode. On the bottom left under My Calendars you will see that we have added a Google public calendar overlay. This calendar is a list of Lotusphere general events that are pulled from our Google pubic calendar. These include most of the events that are happening around the sessions you will be attending. This way you can easily check out when the Jamfest is, for example, or what time lunch is.

Does anybody know the Google Calendar URL for this file? I would love to just put this into my real calendar and not the one on Lotusphere Online that I won't check anyway.

You can also add your own Google calendars to your iNotes calendar by simply clicking Add next to My Calendars so you can add your own private appointments to your calendar to make the calendar more useful.

This is completely backwards. I don't want to make the iNotes calendar more useful. I want to make my calendar more useful. I know this is hard to do from an "enterprise view" where the iNotes calendar is the center of the universe. Lotusphere attendants don't work for Lotusphere. They work for thousands of other companies. We don't need to subscribe our calendars into the Lotusphere Online system but we need to be able to subscribe the Lotusphere Online calendards into ours.

That should behttp://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/ladmin%40ls09.info/public/basicTaken from here. It's not an iCal feed though. Now I'll check if I can get the session schedule export to work ... :-)

Thank you. This is the iCal then:

And here is the iCal for "Other Events " at Lotusphere.

Volker/Michael - that bit of information has just made my day - all the info I need straight into my iCal calendar. Thank you.
