    Add your mobile phone number

    Teaching staff and secretaries may send announcements in a course room that can be forwarded as text messages – for instance in the event of cancellations or changes in teaching activities.

    Export your calendar

    You can export events from your calendar and import these into a different system. You can export all events or only events related to a specific Moodle room. In addition, you can choose whether you want it to be the events of this week, this month, the latest or the next 60 days, or in a user defined interval (two years in advance). This guide will show you how to export your calendar.

    3. Define what you want to export and what time period you want to export and click ‘Get calendar URL’
