All users have their own personal calendars. A personal calendar shows only the events from course workspaces the user is a member of. 

The calendar may contain events created by Sisu, due dates created by activities, and events created by the teacher him/herself. If Sisu has events that have registrations and timetable information, these timetable events are shown only to those students who have registered themselves in these events (for example lecture group 1). If the course has an event in Sisu that has no registration but has timetable information, the timetable information is shown to all course students.

Please note that adding attachments to calendar events is not recommended, since they cannot be imported to the following year's course calendar. If you follow the instructions on Material delivery, the following year you can import your current workspace material and other Sections into the empty workspace. 

Sisu-based events

The course calendar contains room and time information on lectures and exercises automatically driven from Sisu.

Sisu-based information (event title, date and time) will be overwritten nightly, but you may add information on the description field. This field is not overwritten.

If you need to delete a calendar event that was created automatically from Sisu, you need to delete it only from Sisu. The event will be removed from MyCourses the following night.

Activity-based events

The course workspace activities' deadlines (due date) will be added to the course calendar automatically.

Events created by the teacher

Teachers can create new calendar events. 

The calendar can be synced with the Aalto University Exchange calendar (Outlook Web Access) or other calendar systems which support iCal-format, such as Google Calendar.
