How do I subscribe to a calendar on my Desktop Computer?
You may prefer to subscribe to calendars in Workspace instead of using email notifications. When you subscribe, you create a direct, one-way connection from Workspace to your calendar client. This ensures your calendars are always up to date and removes the need to import individual calendar files from email messages. Instead, future changes to calendar events in Workspace will automatically appear in your calendar after the subscription is established.
Subscribing to one group's calendar:
- From any group calendar page, click the Subscribe to iCalendar.
The link opens in the default calendar application you have installed on your computer (example: Outlook or iCal) and asks if you want to add the feed to your calendar. Depending on your calendar's settings, it automatically refreshes with the most recent changes.
Subscribing to a group calendar means you never have to visit the group itself (unless prompted to do so by your Chair) to view the Web-based calendar or stay informed of future meeting events.
However, you must keep your calendar updated. You can set the update frequency when you first add the subscription, or you can do a manual update at any time. The method for manually updating your calendar depends on the calendar you use.
