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. If your calendar has exported the .ics as a file, you will need to upload it to a web host.
Note: It is a good idea to upload it (using FTP or another means) to the server which hosts your WordPress installation. You can upload it to your WordPress /wp-content/uploads folder. Once you have uploaded it, make note of the full URL, such as:
- Go to your Dashboard > Events > Calendar Feeds. Paste the URL of your .ics file in the Feed URL field.
- Choose the Category where you wish to import your event. If you need a new category, create it first using the Dashboard > Events > Event Categories.
- Click Add new subscription. A new box will appear with the feed URL and Refresh and Remove buttons.
- Click Update. This will import the events into your Calendar.
