Timely’s Calendar allows you to import feeds from both other Timely Calendars and other calendars (Google, iCal, Outlook, etc.).

How do I Import a Non-Timely Calendar?

Calendar programs allow you to export what is called an iCalendar (.ics) file. This file contains event data (like times, dates, location, title, description, and time zone) in a standard format. This lets different calendar systems share information. Once you have obtained an .ics file or URL from a calendar, you will need to add this to your Calendar.

Obtaining an .ics File

Please consult your software’s documentation on how to export an .ics file. Here are some examples:

Adding an .ics File

If your .ics is already a URL (which means it starts with “http://” or “webcal://”), you are ready to start.

Note: If you’ve only managed to download a .ics file, then it’s best to upload the file to some server or cloud. Once you have uploaded it, make note of the full URL, such as: http://www.example.com/mycalendar.ics

  1. Go to your calendar dashboard and click on the left menu item Import.

 

2. Enter the name of the feed and paste the URL of your .ics file in the FEED URL field.

 

3. Choose a Category or Tag where you wish to import your event. If you need a new category, create it first using the “New” link.

 

4. Click Import button. This will import the events into your Calendar and the new box will appear with the feed name and its options.
