Calendars and Jobulator Mobile for Kindle
This tutorial is will provide a walk-through of the Calendar tools provided in Jobulator Mobile for Kindle. You will learn how to review your schedule with the quick online calendar integration as well as setup and integrate with your mobile device’s calendar apps.
Absence & Substitute Management Calendar Integration
Jobulator Mobile for Kindle users have quick and easy access to their schedule of accepted jobs by clicking on the “Calendar” tab located in the Navigation Bar at the bottom of the app. This tool will provide a monthly calendar of days on which you are scheduled to work or have entered non-work days.
You can toggle between months using the arrows located above the calendar. Only jobs for districts who allow the use of Jobulator can be shown in this calendar.
Tapping the online Calendar button will log you into your Frontline Education’s Absence Management account (formerly Aesop).
There, you can view more details of a particular job.
Integrating with Your Device's Calendar App
Using the Calendar App Integration
While the integrated online calendar is quite convenient for seeing your schedule at a quick glance, it will not notify you of upcoming jobs. For that, we have integrated with your Kindle’s Calendar app.
You can use the calendar app each time you accept a job by tapping the Add to Calendar button. If no calendars are available, please skip to the Setting Up Your Calendar App section below.
If multiple calendars are available, Jobulator will ask to which calendar it should add the shift. Once selected, Jobulator will add the shift to your calendar and return you to the accepted job in Jobulator.
You can view all the necessary details of this job from your device’s calendar. By default, Jobulator will show the location of the job (if available through Frontline’s Absence Management) in the summary information.
Tapping on the Job on your calendar will reveal all the event details including the school, times, date, address (if available), district, teacher’s name, position, confirmation number, and any notes.
**Please note that if you are removed from a job for any reason, Jobulator will not remove that shift information from your calendar. You must do so manually by opening the Calendar app and deleting the event in question.**
Setting Up Your Calendar App
If Jobulator does not seem able to add shifts to your calendar, you may need to set up your Calendar App account. While this may be different from device to device, the following should provide the basic guidelines necessary for setting up your calendar app.
First, verify that you have a calendar account established or create a new calendar account by opening your Kindle’s Settings and choosing Applications.
There, tap on Email, Contacts, Calendars. Your Kindle will then allow you to add an email / calendar account to your calendar app.
Next, check to see which calendars are actively being displayed by the calendar app.
In the example below, this can be done by clicking on the Calendar menu in the upper left hand corner of the app. Only the selected calendars will actually appear in the calendar app or widget.
You can select calendars by tapping on their name in the left column.
