Most digital or online calendars, such as Google calendars, have a unique iCalendar link that you can copy and publish to your Keep&Share Calendars. This iCalendar feed is an industry-standard format for exchanging calendar information and serves as a direct connection between your Google calendar and your Keep&Share calendar.

When you publish your Google iCalendar feed to your Keep&Share calendar, your synchronized iCalendar feed transfers data out of your Google account to your Keep&Share calendar.

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

Publishing your Google Calendar to Keep&Share

In your external calendar program (ex. Google Calendar), you will need to find and copy the iCalendar feed URL published by the program. Subscription URLs have to point to a specific ".ics" file and the URL must end with a .ics extension. 

You will also need to make sure that your Google calendar is publicly shared in order for you to see it on Keep&Share, if you choose the "public" Google iCalendar feed. There is a private iCalendar feed you can also copy so that you won't have to share your Google calendar publicly. First, you'll need to navigate to the calendar in your Google account that you want to copy the iCalendar feed for. Then follow the steps in the image below to copy your Google iCalendar feed:

Once you have copied the Google iCalendar feed, then open your Keep&Share calendar go to the “Customize” screen, click on the “Share, Embed & Subscribe” tab, and then click on the "Subscriptions & feeds" tab. Click the dark blue “Manage your subscriptions...” link. Follow the steps in the image below:

This will open the iCalendar subscriptions management screen, which allows you to set up and manage your iCalendar subscriptions. To create a new subscription, click on the green "New iCalendar Subscription" button. Then 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 your screen, your new calendar iCalendar subscription will be added as an overlay to your calendar.
