Subscribing to a Calendar Feed for Events, Hours, or Facility Reservations


  Communications FAQ  



Your Members or Board Members can subscribe to a Calendar Feed for your Pool Hours, Event Calendar and Facility Reservation grid. These are self-updating feeds, that will change when updates are made on the website. Feed URLs can be added to Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook, and any other service that supports the standard iCalendar format.

So for example, if someone is subscribed to the Event Calendar feed, and your social director adds a new event, this will show on their calendars within 24 Hours. Some services, like Google Calendar take longer than others.

Your Feeds URLs are…

 yoursite.com/Facility-Feed.php
yoursite.com/Calendar-Feed-Events.php
yoursite.com/Pool-Hours-Feed.php

Important: Opening these links directly will download a .ics file, containing the current data for that particular calendar. Although this data could be imported to your preferred calendar, this is NOT the same as subscribing to the feed. It would be a one-time import, and not a true live feed.
