Diary activities in WiredContact to appear in Outlook & Mobile devices

Each user has their own task list in WiredContact to have these appear in your Outlook diary we create an ICS file and place it in a location known only to you with a unique address.
Every few minutes we run a report from WiredContact and save it to this location and overwrite the file. To set this up we need to amend your standard WiredContact to add in this facility as it is not a standard feature everyone wants. 
Once we have created the file you need to import it once only using the following method.

Outlook 2010

Click on the File Tab -> Open -> Import

Outlook 2007

  1. Click on the File Menu then click on Import and Export
  2. Highlight “Import an iCalendar (.ics) or vCalendar file (.vcs)” then click Next
