Subscribing to the calendar via iCal

iMeet® Central allows you to subscribe to workspace calendars, tasks, and milestones using iCal subscriptions. You can also use any iCal-compatible software to view your iMeet Central events and milestones.

Note: The iCal subscription is a read only view of iMeet Central calendars. This means that any modifications made to a shared calendar in the iCal compatible calendar will not get synced back to iMeet Central. 

 

To subscribe to your workspace calendar you will need to get the URL by going to the Calendar tab in your workspace and select Options > iCal Feed.

Once clicked you will be presented with three different links. These links allow you to either syndicate Calendar Events, Tasks & Milestones, or Calendar, Tasks & Milestones to your iCal-compatible software.

Incorporate a iMeet Central calendar feed into Outlook 2003

Subscribing to a workspace iCal feed in Outlook 2003 Requires an add on, as iCal functionality is not built-in. We recommend Remote Calendar. As Remote Calendar is an open source project, support is limited. iMeet Central is not responsible for any Outlook application problem arising from the installation of Remote Calendar. Support is available at the Remote Calendar Forum.

Using Remote Calendar:

Click on the PLUS icon in the Remote Calendar Outlook toolbar to add a new Calendar, copy and paste the CD iCal URL, and type your new Calendar's Name and click OK.

Incorporate a iMeet Central Calendar feed into Google calendar

  1. Sign into your Google Calendar account
  2. Under Other Calendars, click on the Add link
  3. Click on "Add by URL." Copy and paste the CD iCal URL from your iMeet Central Calendar page into the Address field and click Add.

Note: Calendar changes made in iMeet Central may take up to 24 hours to refresh in Google.
