Get custom field to display in subscribed calendar

    Hey there.. I added a custom text field that works fine for viewers using the PC version of our website. When someone subscribes to calendar using iCloud or Google, the custom text does not show up. I would like this custom field to show up as a priority in listing as well. In other words, when in month view and you hover over event, I want the custom field to show in preview popup.

    Another option would be to change the ‘Organizer’ to ‘NCS Operator’ and use that as a dropdown to select the member that is scheduled. That involves changing language files, I assume?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. I will try to help with your question.

    The ical feed does not currently support any custom fields. I do not believe the language files will affect the field that is used in the ical file, as it uses a set of strict standards for the data.

    Sorry I didn’t have better news for you on any of this. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Regards,
    Sky

    OK, I understand that, NOW: Is there a way to change the text ‘ORGANIZER’ to something else? In other words, rather than an event organizer, could I globally change the word ‘organizer’ to ‘Net Control Scheduled’???
    So instead of the title ‘organizer’ on every event, it would show the event ‘net control scheduled’?
    That would easily solve my issue, as the database organizers are the same people that would be needed for the drop down. I just want to give them a title other than ‘organizer’..
    Thanks in advance for the assist!
