ICA Congress Spreadsheet Scheduler

A free spreadsheet scheduler for the ICA Congress Abu Dhabi 2023 - the full programme in a spreadsheet with a scheduling tool

Conferences can be intense; the scheduler will help you spot all those potential clashes and can be filtered by theme.

ICA Congress spreadsheet scheduler

To setup your personal scheduler:

  1. Click ‘File’ and ‘Make a Copy’
    (the automated 'add' to schedule code will work in Google Sheets, not Excel).

  2. To add a conference event to ‘My Schedule': tick/check the ‘Add’ box (in column I) and the event will automatically appear.

  3. If you find you have a clash on ‘My Schedule’, or have changed your mind, check the ‘Leftovers’ ✅ box and it will go to the ‘Leftovers’ sheet. You can also delete the entire row if you need to.

Spreadsheet rules:

  • Don't change the name of the tabs or add events in very quick succession

  • The very first time you add an event, the script may take a few seconds to work

  • To view all sessions within a conference theme e.g. 'Access and Memories':
    click the filter icon in column H, click 'clear' and then select the theme you
    wish to filter by


Why spreadsheets when there's a programme? Spreadsheets allow for visually clear and filterable data and can be duplicated easily so the user can keep or edit their own version - this is useful to most people, but especially those that use screen readers, have visual processing disorders or ADHD.
