Announcing an Exciting New Website Functionality - Calendar Feed!!

What is an iCalendar Feed?

The Calendar Feed feature in CouncilWare allows our users to display our council's calendar events in Apple iCal, Google Calendar, Outlook or any other calendar application that supports iCalendar feeds - including ScoutBook. Users can subscribe to to our iCalendar feed and then as new events are added or changes made to existing events, the feeds are automatically updated and reflected in your (personal) calendar(s).

Important to know

1. Calendar feeds are one-way

iCalendar feeds can only be used to view calendar data but not to modify calendar data. This is a one-way synchronization from our council's web calendar to another calendar system.

2. Data Range Covered

iCalendar feeds include event data between 6 months in the past and 12 months in the future.

3. Update Frequency

The Council website software refreshes the feed source on an hourly basis. Whenever a new event is added or a change is made to an existing event, it may take up to 1 hour for the feed to refresh. However, the update frequency a user experiences varies depending on the subscribing calendar program:

  • Apple iCal: It is possible to configure the feed update frequency between 5 minutes and once a week.
  • Outlook and Google Calendar: The update frequency is not configurable. In our experience it can take several hours to several days to refresh. This is outside the of control of our website software.

4. Other Devices and Calendar Apps

How other calendars or devices will allow subscription to an ics format calendar feed is beyond the control of website software. If you are experiencing problems with subscribing from your device, please check Google for answers. If you find useful tips and would like to share with us, we'd most appreciate it.

5. Terminating an iCalendar Feed

You may terminate the calendar feed in your personal calendar at any time.  How to terminate the feed varies by application.  Please refer to the "help" function in your calendar app for more information on how to do this.

How To Add the Calendar Feed to Your Personal Calendar:

To add the Council Web Calendar feed to your personal calendar, RIGHT CLICK HEREExternal Link, and then copy the link address to your clipboard.  Then open your personal calendar app and paste the link into your calendar to create the subscription. 

Refer to your calendar's help on how to use .ics files with your personal calendar. If you are experiencing problems with subscribing from your device, you may also search Google for answers. If you find useful tips and would like to share with us, we'd most appreciate it.
