Maranatha Christian Academy Families may add Athletic/Activity schedules of their choice, which will update automatically with the most up-to-date information, from the MCA Athletic Calendar Service and Website.
(Please Note: Many Android users actually use Google Calendar and may not realize it. If you do use Google Calendar it is recommended that you set up your calendar through Google Calendar directly. See here for those instructions.)
The MCA Calendar has a "Subscribe app" will let you push all the schedules you are interested in to your smart phone, tablet, or computer and they will automatically update with any changes made later in Activity Scheduler. This works with Outlook, Google Calendar, and iCal for Mac users and smart phone users (Android and iPhone). This also works with RSS readers.
From the article at the rSchoolToday Website*:
1. Be sure you are on the device you want to add the calendar to!
After heading to the MCA Athletics Calendar, look on the right side and find the box that says: "View Schedules."
a) Click on all of the schedules you want to subscribe to from the View Schedules Box on the right side of the calendar,
b) then click View.
Note: if you don’t see the View Schedules box on your screen, you are on a tablet or smart phone with a smaller monitor size. In these cases, the button to view schedules is labeled "schedules" in the upper right of your screen.
2. Once you click View, the schedule report opens with the full schedule for this school year for all the activities you have selected. (Note: if the schedule doesn’t open, you have to disable your pop-up blocker).
a) Select 'Subscribe"
3. For an Android device, you will want to select "iCal" from the next screen
4. If you click into Calendars, you can see the school calendar listed as a calendar you have subscribed to.
(It is titled Maranatha Christian Academy.)
a) Calendars can be turned on and off here by clicking the checkbox next to the calendar name. Be sure your MCA calendar is checked.
5. That's it! The MCA Athletic schedules you have chosen will update on your Android Device just as you chose. Great job!
6. Want to return later and change your choices?
If you want to edit your settings later, first, delete the current calendar on your device and then return and repeat the above steps with the changes you desire.
