Can I Import my existing work or personal calendars?
Yes! Weve 'synchronizes' with your existing external calendars and can access the calendars you've set up on your iPhone to not only color-code and view these events, but also edit them. Edits will also flow back to the original source.
Can I create an event for another calendar in Weve?
Right now you can only edit or delete events in other calendars. Creating a new event for one of these calendars is not currently supported.
I have calendars I subscribe to, how do I handle those in Weve?
Weve encourages you to only select calendars you’re actively making plans in (as opposed to viewing purposes only). Nothing’s preventing you from adding these calendars, but they won’t currently get any special color treatment and can potentially make it harder to discern actual plans you need to follow. Weve will be coming out with the same sorts of interests as these calendars, but with more rich information and visual treatment along with the ability to get tickets to events launching straight from the event in your calendar. Ultimately, the experience for these subscriptions will be best directly in Weve once these are available.
I don’t see the calendar I want to sync - what do I do?
If you don’t see the account/calendar you’re wanting to sync to, follow these steps to add an account: 1) Go to your Apple iPhone ‘Settings’ App (is the grey gears icon). 2) scroll down to ‘Accounts & Passwords’ (with a grey key icon in front of it). 3) In ‘Accounts’, tap ‘Add Account’ and choose from the options provided or tap ‘other’ if you don’t see your provider. 4) Follow the steps to add your account and make sure you “turn on” the calendars button so that your events sync. 5) Confirm your settings and close the app. 6) In Weve, this may take a few minutes to flow through to the list of external calendars. To speed up this process, “quit” the Weve app and relaunch either completing the onboarding process or going to ‘Connected Calendars’ in the main Weve settings page under your profile icon in the top-left corner of the activity inbox tab. Following the steps in this setting will enable you to select the newly added calendar.
Note: Many corporate accounts are managed through ‘Exchange’ – contact your IT administrator on how to add an account not readily creatable. There are some organizations that require users to only access corporate calendars through a specific app – usually for security reasons. If you’re having trouble, go to ‘Contact Us’ and we’ll do our best to get you setup.
Will the changes I make to external calendars update the original calendar with those changes?
Yes! If you edit/delete a synced calendar event in Weve, it will reflect those updates in the source. Note: not all details are currently editable – for example you can’t currently edit the location or participants of an external calendar event.
Can I share a work event to my VIP for awareness or add my VIP to a work event? What information is passed along?
You can share a work event to a VIP for awareness or to add them to the event. For sharing awareness of a work event, any external calendar that’s been synced to Weve that has been self-classified by the user as ‘work’ will not pass along the details of these events – only the time window and a title that says ‘<your name>’s work event’. For adding a VIP to your work event, the details will be passed along to your VIP as the details are useful for attendees to know. Weve will only store the same information that your VIP will see in its servers (so that they can be refreshed between VIPs). This information is anonymized and secure.
Can Weve publish new events created in Weve back to my external calendar source?
Not currently, but some form of solution is on the roadmap. There’s a lot of complexity behind this to make the process easy for users to hookup and be easily digestible on those other calendar applications and services.
