    Create a Student Account

    If you frequently attend trainings via the iOS app, you can sign up for a free student account to quickly organize and access all of your upcoming training sessions. When you are logged in to your student account, you will see a list of all upcoming trainings associated with your email address (regardless of whether you set up the iCal integration).
    1. On the Settings screen, tap Sign Up.
    2. Enter your name and email address, then choose a password and tap Sign Up.
    3. You will receive a Verification email asking you to confirm your email address. Tap the Verify my email address button to confirm it.
    4. Back on the Settings screen, your new account will be displayed! You'll also see all upcoming trainings associated with your email address on the Join a Session page (regardless of whether they are on your iCal app or you have the iCal integration enabled).

    View Upcoming Sessions (Sync Your Calendar to the App)

    The iOS app can check the calendar app on your device and show you all sessions that are coming up! All you need to do is allow the app access to your calendar.
    1. On the Join a Training screen, tap Connect to your calendar.
    2. When prompted, tap OK. This will allow the app to access your device's calendar and pull information about upcoming sessions.
    Results: Any event in your iCal that includes a Join URL for a session will be automatically listed in the GoToTraining app.
    Note: If you are an attendee, you can tap a session to quickly register and join it.
