This tutorial is will provide a walk through of the Calendar tools provided in Jobulator Mobile for Android. You will learn how to review your schedule with the quick online calendar integration as well as setup and integrate with your mobile device’s calendar apps.
1. Frontline Education’s Absence & Substitute Management Calendar Integration
Jobulator Mobile for Android users have quick and easy access to their schedule of accepted jobs by clicking on the “Calendar” tab located in the Navigation Bar at the bottom of the app. This tool will provide a monthly calendar of days on which you are scheduled to work or have entered a non-work day. You can toggle between months using the arrows located above the calendar. Only jobs for districts who allow the use of Jobulator can be shown in this calendar. Tapping the Online Calendar button will log you into your Frontline Education’s Absence Management account (formerly Aesop). There, you can view more details of a particular job.
2. Integrating with Your Device’s Calendar App
• Using the Calendar App integration:
While the integrated online calendar is quite convenient for seeing your schedule at a quick glance, it will not notify you of upcoming jobs. For that, we have integrated with your Android’s Calendar app.
You can use the calendar app each time you accept a job by tapping the “Add to Calendar” button. If no calendars are available, please skip to the Setting Up Your Calendar App section below. If multiple calendars are available, Jobulator will ask you which we should add the shift to. Once selected, Jobulator will add the shift to your calendar and return you to the accepted job in Jobulator.
You can view all of the necessary details of this job from your device’s calendar. By default, Jobulator will show the location of the job (if available through Frontline’s Absence Management) in the summary information. Tapping on the Job on your calendar will reveal all of the event details including the School, times, date, address (if available), district, teacher’s name, position, confirmation number, and any notes.
**Please note that if you are removed from a job for any reason, Jobulator will not remove that shift information from your calendar. You must do so manually by opening the Calendar app and deleting the event in question.**
• Setting Up your Calendar App:
If Jobulator does not seem to be adding the shifts to your calendar, you may need to setup your Calendar App account. While this may be different from device to device, the following should provide the basic guidelines necessary for setting up your calendar app /widget. 3 First, verify that you have a calendar account established or create a new calendar account by opening your calendar and tapping the “Menu” button followed by “Settings.” Here, you can adjust your Calendar settings as well as “Add Accounts.” Most Android uses will have a Google account already setup with their phone.
Next, check to see which calendars are actively being displayed by the calendar app. In the example below, this can be done by clicking on the Calendar drop down in the upper left hand corner of the app. Only the selected calendars will actually appear in the calendar app or widget.
We would love to help in any way that we can!
