The background task "Deadlines" will export all entries in "Deadlines" or "Calendar" in iCal format. One file will be created for each employee, either under a local path, on a ftp or a webDAV server. If you want to subscribe to those deadlines with an iPhone or use them with an iCal compatible calendar, it is recommended to export to webDAC Share. To do so, follow these steps:
Please note that deadlines will only be exported if the employee has activated iCal export in his deadlines or his calendar (menu "Tools").
Go to your personal space, then click on the "Deadlines" button or the "Calendar" button. In the menu "Tools", select "iCal export".
In the iCal Export window, check "Turn on iCal Export". You can choose to export deadlines as events or as to-do's.
- Export as event will create an entry in the main window of your iCal calendar and is recommended for your calendar.
- Export as to do will create a task. This is recommended for deadlines.

Next, set up a local export on your server. You will have to install the timeSensor client on the server.
- Open the task manager and click on "Deadlines"

- On your server, select the share that you have just created. You will find it in the shared folder on the server's hard drive.
Please note that timeSensor will only perform an export if at least one user has activated iCal export, as mentioned above.
Once all this is set up, timeSensor will export to the share one .ics file for each user who has activated the task.
http://"inter IP address of the server"/webdav/"name of the share"/"name of the .ics file"
The expression "webdav" in the URL is mandatory, the other expressions will depend on your settings. To look up the name of the .ics file, just open the share and copy the name. Usually, the name should look like this:
