Global Agendas -- Sharing Your UICal Calendar with Anyone. Global Agenda viewing is an option of UICal on the Web that allows you to send a URL to anyone you want -- they do not have to have to have a UICal account and they may not have anything to do with UIC at all -- that will allow them read-only access to a view of the times that you are busy.

People viewing your Global Agenda Web page will be able to read the text of agenda items that you mark items with the access level of Public. Non-Public items will just appear as "Busy".

If you haven't already, activate your site. Use the following settings to connect to people.uic.edu using SFTP. Below you will find instructions for Windows and Mac SFTP clients.
