How do I create a Google Key?
To access bCal with anything other than a browser (mobile devices, clients such as Outlook and iCal), you will first need to set up a Google Key. You'll use this Google Key as your password to set up access to your bCal account with your mobile device or desktop client. To get started, go to https://idc.berkeley.edu/mmk/ in any web browser. Step-by-step instructions for proceeding through this process on this website are below.
Choose ‘Login via CalNet’ and sign-in with your CalNet credentials
Choose the bApps service
Choose your account name. If you only have one @berkeley.edu account (not subdomain accounts), only one account will be listed here. From here you can set or delete a key you have set
Lets set a key. You have two options. A pre-generated key or one you pick yourself. Here is what the pre-generated keys look like:
Once you set a pre-generated key, be sure to copy it down. There is a reminder on the next screen
If you find it easier, you can set your own key
If your key is too simple to guess you will get an error
Once you pick a key that is complex enough, you are all set. Success.
