How to Use the Online Schedule and Mobile App
Navigating by Day
When you first see the schedule displayed at nwfolklife.org/festival/schedule, all four days are displayed. If you’d like to jump to one day, mouse over the dates on the right hand side of the screen. The four days of the Festival will drop down for you to make a selection.
Navigating by Stage
If you’d like to view the events in our schedule by stage, mouse over the word “Schedule” and select “By Stage.” (Please note the other options that allow you to view the schedule in an expanded or grid view.)
You can also view one specific stage at a time by mousing over “Browse by Stage” in the right hand navigation area.
Navigating by Performance Type
Our schedule tool allows you to view by event type such as Dance Performance, Music Performance, Panel Presentation, etc. Showcases are specially programmed packages of performances with a similar style or theme, and include all event types. We have showcases of Dance Performance, showcases of Music Performance, etc. Sorting by showcase allows you to view these special themed shows in one place.
Creating a Personal Schedule
To create your schedule, you’ll first have to create an account by clicking “sign up” at the top of your screen. Then you can click on the star by each event to add it you’re your personal calendar! You can then view your schedule by clicking on the dropdown menu in the upper right corner of your screen.
Integrate Your Schedule with iCal
If you are an Google Calendar, Outlook, or Apple iCal user, click on the mobile icon in the right hand navigation (http://2013northwestfolklifefestival.sched.org/mobile-site#.UXG9cLUp-PM). By subscribing to the iCal feed in your calendar program or mobile phone you can have instant, offline access to your schedule or the entire schedule of events. It even automatically pulls in updates of schedule changes.
Download the Mobile App
A free mobile application is available from iTunes (for iPhones) and the Android Mmarket. This is a native app, which means it will download to your phone and be accessible without internet access. Each time you open the app while connected to the internet, the most recent version of the schedule will automatically update on your phone.
Access a Mobile Version of the Schedule
You do not have to download the app. You can also bookmark http://2013northwestfolklifefestival.sched.org/mobile to access a mobile-friendly version of the schedule. View your personal schedule, browse what’s happening right now or search for what you want. The mobile web app stores the schedule data locally on your phone for offline access too.Please note: If you downloaded an app during any previous Festivals, you will have to download a new one for the 2013 Festival schedule. Apps downloaded in previous years will not automatically update with current information.
