• General remark

    FileCalendar stores files (Documents,Pictures, Contacts andNotes) to the calendar. Files can be added with the import function or transferred to the FileCalendar by other apps.

    The FileCalendar is equipped with numerous file sharing functions. To make the best use of the app, we recommend installing a Cloud app (for example, iCloud Drive orDropBox) on the iPhone or iPad.

    first steps
  • Quick start guide

    2. Touch the document and keep it selected until the share screen appears
    3. Upload the document to FileCalendar by touching the FileCalendar icon on the share screen
    4. Attach the document to a chosen event by selecting it in the displayed list

  • Synchronization notes

    Your standard calendar events will be automatically synchronized with the FileCalendar. Please remember that all events deleted in the standard calendar will also be deleted in FileCalendar. Therefore we recommend you save your original files elsewhere.

    first steps
  • Are events synchronized with other devices?
    The events are automatically synchronized with the default calendar. Synchronization can therefore take place across devices.
  • Where can I find the File Manager?

    The app has a File Manager which displays all attached event files. The following functions are available:

    • Preview files
    • Rename files
    • Send files
    • Delete files
    • Zip files
    • Filter files for documents, pictures and notes

    You will find the File Manager on the start page (click the top left icon).

The prerequisite is that a corresponding Cloud App is installed on the device. The Documents folder can also be filled with files from the PC via iTunes.
