You can also export your planner to Outlook, Google Calendar, and Apple iCal.

When you’re done building your personalized schedule, you can share your itinerary on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the icons located above the search bar, or e-mail it to other attendees. Be sure to add #SLA2013 to your tweet. It’ll be retweeted by @SLA2013 so others can view your schedule to see what sessions they might be interested in!
