At TripCase, our main goal is to make your travel life easier. And we know that if you’re like most people, you live life by your calendar. That’s why we’ve made it easy to import your trip details from TripCase into your online email/calendar clients like iCal, Google and Outlook.
There are two ways to import TripCase into your online calendar: via live subscription and file import. To get to both options, go to tripcase.com in a web browser (login is the same id and password as on your phone) and click on the Settings tab at the top of the page and then on the Calendar tab towards the top of the page.
Subscription feed option
For online calendars and other calendars that can access the internet, the best option is to set up a calendar subscription. To create a subscription feed, simply click on the “click here” link that appears on the Calendar tab page under the “Subscription Feed” heading. Or, copy and paste the url that’s provided in the same section into a web browser, hit return and then follow the prompts. And voila, TripCase will appear wherever you access your online calendars (on your phone or computer).
The best part about having a subscription feed to TripCase in your calendar is that every time your calendar accesses the Internet, it will check the url to see if there are any changes to your itineraries since you last connected. This will keep your calendar synced with any updates to your itinerary within TripCase.
Accessing the TripCase subscription feed on Gmail
The subscription feed option works best with iCal integration. However, if you use gmail or another email/calendar client, try getting the subscription feed started like this: copy the link into an email and send it to yourself. Click on the link within your email and follow the prompts. The feed should appear within your calendar.
Allowing others access to your TripCase details via subscription
If you want to share your TripCase information with someone else’s calendar, you can send that person the same url and they too will have a subscription to your TripCase itineraries. At any point, you can change the url (to stop others you’ve given the url to from seeing your information on their calendars) or stop the TripCase calendar feed altogether.
One-time file import
If your calendar doesn’t connect to the Internet or you don’t want a live connection with your travel information, you can do a one-time download of all of your TripCase travel information and import it into your calendar. With this method, if you add or change anything on your trips, the information will not be automatically updated and you will need to re-download the file and import it again (or just manually make the change on your calendar if it is an easy change).
