Calendars that sync with Google Cal or Outlook

Calendars that sync with Google Cal or Outlook

Right now, parents on our ski team must manually click each event to "add to my calendar," but since we have as many as 2-3 events per week, that is a burden. Instead, they would love to subscribe to a series of events (for instance, all events that share a given tag).

        I support this on the general grounds that the more ways that we can automatically link Wild Apricot data to social web systems (Google calendar, Outlook calendar, Facebook, Meetup, Twitter, SMS, etc.) the better.

        I vote to support this item! Our charity organization has a year-round calendar of events and we'd like to be able to create an iCal feed from all the events with capabilities to have all our members download all events for the year in one swoop vs. all of us having to go in manually and download each calendar item one at a time. Please make this a priority for when considering future enhancements to the platform.

        We have a number of members (including me) that sync our Club's Google calendar to our mobile and desktop calendars. We want our events to appear on their personal calendars so they don't book another event and then discover one of our WA events should have been listed.

        Any intentions for the Wild Apricot calendar to upload to clients existing calendars? i.e. Google, Apple, etc., calendars?

        It would be very convenient as members/clients can look at their personal calendar instead of looking in 2 places for events.

        Our group sets the following year's calendar of (26) events in December each year. Once finalized, our members all go out and add these events to their calendars. It would be so nice to have a feature that can add all upcoming events to your calendar in one swoop. Vs. having to go into each event and add all 26 to your calendar separately for each of our members...

        Yes! It appears that "Frank", a WA developer, had started to work on this until Google changed interfaces.

        I also vote for the linkage between WA events and an external calendar (e.g., Google Calendar). Besides the integration with individuals' calendars, one can embed Google Calendar within a Web page.

        As far as I know, WA doesn't have a "calendar at a glance" feature.

        This is very important to us! As we transition to WA from our current site, many members have expressed a concern that they will not be able to link our calendar to their phones via Google Calendar. This our biggest barrier to the transition, and we'll likely continue to use Google Calendar for our event management until WA integrates this function. The add to my calendar feature wont push events to them the way Google does.

        Please let this community know if we can help develop this!
        Thank you.

        Hi Frank! I have a vested interest in seeing this come back to life, and may have the dev skills to help! Was the last iteration posted on GitHub or anything open-source? Happy to take a look!

        100% want this feature! Our club is event base driven so having a calendar that syncs to a mobile device is critical for keeping our members up to date on last minute changes along with having everything we offer at their finger tips. Does anybody have a work around in the mean time? I know individual events can be easily added to calendar but I don't believe they update if they are changed. Is there something I can suggest they use relating to the RSS feed and an RSS feed app as an alternative? Thanks!

        We have a large number of members who would like to "subscribe" to our calendar via the CalDAV specification.

        As an example of how this might work, MLB offers this feature so that a follower can receive the contents of the calendar for a specific team's schedule in the Calendar apps on a Mac/iPhone/iPad by subscribing to ‘webcal://mlb.am/tix/rays_schedule_full’ which is the site “serving” the schedule in an iCal format. During the subscribing process a user can choose how often the calendar is updated thereby getting changes without having to manually refresh the calendar.

        This is a request that seems to be coming up more and more often. Thanks!

        I'm glad you liked it.

        This was discontinued because of some changes in how Google reads event data, so once I'm able to update it I will post a new notification in the thread.

        However keep in mind that these experiments are personal projects I work on outside of my work so they're not supported by our team here and will most likely be replaced by actual features in Wild Apricot (at some point).

        But that being said - I do like to create these interim solutions to fill the gap between what we offer now and what we might offer in the future.

        Does that mean that this feature no longer works??? It was a great idea that made it very easy for people to add our events to their calendar. Why turn it off?
