Calendar Settings

RW Elephant allows you to subscribe to a calendar of the events, delivery windows, and return windows. You can view this in Google Calendars, iCal, or a compatible calendar format.

Begin by navigating to the "Account" icon in the upper right corner of your browser window in your R.W. Elephant account.

Once in your Account, select "Calendar" in the left column.

Use the tick boxes to choose Delivery Orders and/or Will-Call Orders in your calendar. You must include at least one type of Order.

Then, select the Times to include in your calendar subscription. Choose the Event Window, the Delivery Window, and/or the Return Window depending on what works best for you.

Click the "Copy Calendar Link" button.

Depending on which browser you're using, the link will then be copied to your clipboard or appear in a pop-up window for you to copy.

Please note that if you would like these different windows and invoice types to appear on different calendars, you can choose particular combinations and have multiple links. For instance, if you want your Will-Call Return Windows to be green, you'd choose "Will-Call Invoices" and "Show Return Window" but nothing else. Copy that link and complete the subscription process. Then return to create your additional combinations.

Open iCal or a compatible program. See links below for Outlook and Google Calendar.

From the "File" menu, choose "New Calendar Subscription."

Paste the "Calendar Link" you copied from your R.W. Elephant account and click "Subscribe."

Select the options you'd like including naming your calendar, colors, alerts, etc.

Be sure to have the calendar auto-refresh "Every 5 minutes" so you can stay up-to-date with changes from your RW Elephant orders.

Note that Google calendars are compatible with these links but you don't get the option to refresh every 5 minutes so you might get inaccurate information fairly easily.

Your Order times will now appear on the calendar.
