You can synchronize live calendar data with external, non-Keep&Share calendars using iCal publish & subscribe feeds. To “subscribe” to other Keep&Share calendars so they’ll appear in your own K&S calendars, use Overlays.

iCalendar is an industry standard format for exchanging calendar information. Almost all major calendar programs support it, including Keep&Share, Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal, etc. The iCalendar feed serves as a direct connection between between your K&S Calendar and calendar programs outside of your K&S account.

An iCalendar subscription feed transfers data from an external calendar into your Keep&Share account.

Note: the iCalendar feed feature is available only to paid Keep&Share accounts.

Subscribing to an external calendar

In your external calendar program (such as Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook), find and copy the iCalendar feed URL published by the program.

Then open your Keep&Share calendar, go to the Customize screen, and click on the “iCalendar” tab. Then click the dark blue “Subscribe to Other calendars” link.

This will open the iCalendar subscriptions management screen, which allows you to set up and manage your iCalendar subscriptions. To create a new subscription, add the URL and title of the iCalendar feed you copied earlier. Then, select your choice of update schedule from the drop-down menu and your choice of timezone and subscription detail settings. Click the “Update” button to save your changes.

Return to your calendar, and in the navigator on the left-hand side of the screen your new calendar iCalendar subscription will be added as an overlay to your calendar.

Tip: You can use the Calendar Overlays feature to aggregate multiple calendars both in and outside of your account for a combined view all in one Keep&Share calendar.
