    Hi,

    Looks like adding to the calendar is just an ics file.  Does that mean Microsoft isn't using it to plan capacity this year?

    /edit/

    HA!  My bad.  Totally missed the * +My Schedule under the session name.

    Actually.. the first two I've downloaded appear to have the date / time wrong?

    ATC-B302 has the description as June 3, 2013 from 4:00PM to 5:15PM, but the ICS has it on June 26th at 4.30am.  (Teched Europe dates probably?)

     

    edit...

    yup:

    Currently I'm not able to add anything to My Calendar. Selecting works, occasionally, errors occasionally, but when the Star does work it still isn't showing in My Calendar.

    It's glitchy. Slow to load, selections not saving, etc etc. Wish it was tested more thoroughly before launch.

    It is a known issue. We are working on it.

    Murphy's Law of IT @DBegley. You'll definitely deserve a beer once today is over. Smiley

    Yeah I can't seem to find any links to add this to my schedule at all, and the search completely lacks a time function that I can see... last years UI was much nicer =/

    @MikeRigsby Definitely! A few other people will too! We will get it sorted. The good news is we have a lot of great content that we will deliver to you!

    Speed seems ok with me. Only problem I have so far is the times being wrong on the ICS files.

    Is this simply for planning purposes or will you actually be reserving slots for people in sessions meaning you can only enter if registere for that session?

    All sessions are first come first serve. The catalog and schedule builder are for planning purposes. It is a good idea to plan 2 or more sessions per slot in case one room gets too full.

    has the "+My Schedule" disappeared?! I can't see it (or any link to my schedule at all)

    ics download works (but with wrong timings as mentioned by others...)

    Excellent to see what there is to look forward to from my favorite presenters!!  For me this is the great value of this offering.  I'm sure the times and locations will change in the next couple of months.  Thanks!

    is there no way to sort by session time on particular days?

    I'm using the Schedule Builder, but when I click Expand+ link next to the Session times, I get the busy indicator then nothing appears, the Expand+ text simply changes to Collapse-.  Is this working for anyone else, or is it just me?

    There are also not room numbers yet, so the ability to add these things directly to an outlook calendar is really not very useful. Is there going to be an actual "Add to schedule" piece added to this so we can download the whole thing in one shot a few days before the start of TechEd?

    I don't even get the Schedule Builder option when I log in so they're definitely still working on the issues.
