Syncing your Calendar (one-way)

Follow

You can sync your Halaxy calendar to your iPhone, Outlook and Google calendar, as well as any other calendar that uses the iCal format (iCal is a calendar format that allows people to share meetings across online calendar formats).

Available to all practitioners on Halaxy for free, one-way syncing for your Halaxy calendar enables you to see your patient appointments on your other calendars on the go, even when you do not have access to your computer or when you're not logged into your Halaxy account.

Halaxy also supports two-way calendar syncing.

Setting up one-way calendar syncing

To enable one-way syncing, all you need to do is obtain your own unique syncing ID in Halaxy, then enter it into your external calendar. You will then be able to see your appointments on your other calendar.

Getting your unique syncing address

You can connect your Halaxy calendar with your iPhone, Outlook, Google or other iCal-enabled calendars through a unique syncing address (also known as your iCal address) generated in your Halaxy account. You can find this syncing address in two places:

  1. Your Users page: click the Calendar icon then click the Add iCal button to view your own unique syncing address; and
  2. On your Calendar: click the syncing icon at the top right then click the Add iCal button next to the practitioner whose unique syncing address you want to view.

You can also email the unique syncing address to your email address that you use to log in.

Anyone with this unique syncing address can access your calendar, so it is important to keep this unique address private. If you think this unique syncing address has or may have been compromised, generate a new unique syncing address by clicking the sync icon next to the address.

Syncing with your iPhone and iPad calendar

After you have obtained your unique syncing address, you can sync your Halaxy calendar to your iPhone/iPad in two ways: through email or manually.

Quick sync via email

You can email your unique syncing address to yourself when you get the address on your Users page or on your Calendar by clicking the Email icon next to the address, which automatically sends an email with the syncing address to the email address that you use to login.

Click the link in the email and confirm that you want to subscribe to link your Halaxy and iPhone/iPad calendars.
