Note: You are not able to make changes to your ServiceM8 Schedule, only view it. To make changes you must use the ServiceM8 Dispatch Board, or the iPhone/iPad app. Also be careful of recent changes, as while Apple iCal is kept in sync with your ServiceM8 Schedule, it's not real-time - so recent scheduling changes may not be reflected.
