What is included in a calendar file or subscription?

The information in an iCalendar or .ics file depends on how you receive it.

If an event is emailed to you as an attachment to a meeting notice, or you download the iCalendar file from an individual event, you receive:

  • Name
  • Location (if provided)
  • Date and time
  • Frequency
  • Description (if provided)
  • Agenda (if provided)
  • Submitter
  • Group
  • Event URL

If you subscribe to the calendar itself, you also receive:

  • Every event scheduled, regardless of the month view
  • Action items and ballots
  • Shared events

See this Support Announcements forum post for more information about subscribing to calendars.
