Support forumCategory: Questionsics File URL
james_stuart asked 2 months ago

Hi Nikola,
My goal is to sync with Outlook. I understand the connect version of the plugin does not do this, and I would rather not sync Google and Outlook to achieve this. According to this article (https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/import-or-subscribe-to-a-calendar-in-outlook-com-cff1429c-5af6-41ec-a5b4-74f2c278e98c, under heading ‘Subscribe to Calendar’), this can be achieved through Outlook by providing a link to the ics file. 
What link would I provide? What is the location of the ics file?
Thanks for you help,
Jimmy

ICS e-mail attachments are also one of the options in his Connect add-on.

Right, but, as indicated in the link I included, I need a URL for that file to use Outlook’s sync feature. That’s why I asked what the location of the file is.

I don’t think this plug-in offers that. However, there is a workaround, because Google Calendar does offer it. You’d have to set up the plug-in for Google Calendar, and then, in Google Calendar settings, select the calendar view you want and you’ll see the public and secret ical URLs at the bottom of the page.

Yes, that is ultimately what I am trying out now. I haven’t finished getting everything synced up, but I do expect it will work. I’ll leave another comment when it’s all done as to whether or not it worked.
