LF AI Group Calendars Overview


Group calendars are managed within LF AI Foundation Groups.io subgroups (mail lists); with each sub-group (mail list) having a unique group calendar. Meeting invites from these group calendars are sent to the applicable sub-group (mail list). In order to see the various group calendars you must:



Subscribing to LF AI Group Calendars

You can directly subscribe to a Group Calendar to stay in sync with meetings and events

NOTE: When you receive a meeting invite in your inbox for a meeting scheduled within Groups.io (example TAC meeting invite available here) you have the option to directly add the meeting (.ics file) to your calendar tool. However, the only sure way to ensure that your calendar stays in sync with a Group Calendar is to subscribe. DO NOT RELY ON A .ics FILE in any Groups.io meeting invite as: 1) An ics file creates a static snapshot of the meeting at that point in time. 2) Updates and cancellations do not get propagated via this method. 3) You are guaranteed to have issues with seasonal time changes.

Option 1) Subscribe to an INDIVIDUAL sub-group(mail list) calendar 

  • Login to Groups.io for the specific LF AI sub-group (mail list) list you are interested in (ex. tac-general@lists...)
  • Click the "Your Calendar" icon on the left 

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page

  • Click the "Subscribe to Calendar" button

  • Copy the url that is generated
  • Paste the url using whatever method your calendar reader uses for internet calendar subscriptions

Option 2) Subscribe to ALL of the Groups.io sub-group(mail list) calendars you are a member of at once

  • Login to Groups.io for any LF AI sub-group(mail list)
  • Click the "LF AI Foundation" at the top left of the page

  • Click the "Your Calendar" icon on the left 

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page

  • Click the "Subscribe to Calendar" button

Zoom Bridge Overview

The LF provides some shared use Zoom meeting accounts for the LF AI community. Additional Zoom meeting accounts can be requested but will only be approved based on need, budget availability, and overall as the project scales. These shared Zoom accounts are owned by the LF, but usage and management is ultimately managed by the LF AI community. Please carefully review the following:

  • Wherever and whenever possible, Zoom meeting bridges should be distributed across meetings with buffers on either side of the scheduled meeting to avoid conflicts 

  • IF YOU ARE A HOST PLEASE LOG OFF OF THAT ZOOM HOST ACCOUNT WHEN YOUR MEETING IS OVER

  • Meeting IDs are good for a specific day and time-slot only

  • DO NOT use an assigned meeting bridge to start a meeting at a different date or time, otherwise you will cause conflicts for other scheduled meetings

  • DO NOT log into a different meeting using the same Host account, otherwise you will cause conflicts for other scheduled meetings



Zoom Bridge Errors 

  • If you receive the error, "The meeting host is attending another meeting" or similar message: 

    • A previous meeting using that Host account is still in progress and did not end as scheduled 

    • The Host forgot to end the Zoom session and someone is still connected to the bridge

    • Someone has used that Host account to start a meeting outside of the assigned time-slot

    • Someone is using that Host account to attend another Host's meeting in progress

  • If you cannot get into your meeting because the host Zoom account is in use: 

    • Send an email to lfai-meetinghosts@lists.lfai.foundation indicating that you are having an issue with a specific Zoom account. Include the Zoom account name you are having an issue with (ex. Zoom1) 

    • The email will be distributed to the complete list of alternate hosts that have Host privileges LF AI Zoom accounts

    • The LF is not responsible for intervening or setting up an emergency bridge in the event of an LF AI Zoom bridge conflict, however will assist if/when possible, to request please see Requesting/Changing/Canceling a Meeting section below 



Requesting / Changing / Canceling a Meeting

Those with prior approval for Alternate Meeting Hosts & Recordings (see below) AND Scheduling/Managing Meetings in Groups Calendars (see below) do not need to follow this process as you have the permissions to manage your own meetings. For all others, to request a new meeting to be set up or to change/cancel an existing meeting:
