I am testing subscriptions to a few of my soSIMPLE hosted calendars with the Mac Calendar application.
How do you know if users are subscribed, particularly if you want to close the file on the main FileMaker server and cannot because maybe a user’s subscription is actively accessing the Calendar settings file?
Unfortunately, there’s no way to know if anyone’s subscribed over iCal.
However, the way that iCal subscriptions usually work, the events are cached on each persons calendar (like Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, Outlook) then periodically updated. If you remove files from the server or turn off FileMaker server, people will still have the events they’ve received and will sync again the next time it’s available.
