Importing Events using ICS file or URL

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 "https://" 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: https://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/mycalendar.ics

  1. Go to your Dashboard > Events > Import Feeds. Paste the URL of your .ics file in the Feed URL field.
  2. Choose the Category where you wish to import your event. If you need a new category, create it first using the Dashboard > Events > Organize.
  3. Click Add new subscription. A new box will appear with the feed URL and Refresh and Remove buttons.
  4. Click Update. This will import the events into your Calendar.
