Hi Justine,

Yes you are correct. The event mobi app does not do that at all. It never has. This has been an issue from day 1. That is why they went with two apps last year, the sched ap and the event mobi one. That proved problematical. However, if your goal was to synch your sessions with your calendar than the browser which s usung the sched engine will do that.  It creates a separate calendar which can be imported into your ical and google calendars as well as others.  It is very good and also gets updated as new sessions are put into the main icann 58 schedule.  It is really too bad icann is continuing with this app.  The ttf last year did a review of apps and found some much better ones which we told the meetings staff but they have not responded. What we can do is to keep pressing them to either invest in an app that works or get a new one that works froml the getgo

The mobile app prompts me to again select the sessions I want to include in My Schedule.
