Calendar sync. How to subscribe the CYC and Church calendars to your calendar...


CYC Calendar link:

http://www.goyouth.org.au/calendar.ics

Click here if you are looking for the church programme links instead

DO NOT save this file to import into your calendar (as you will have to continuously download and import it to stay up to date). Instead, make sure you add the link in your calendar program so it "subscribes" to the calendar, that way updates are done automatically in the background without you having to do or update anything.

Use the link(s) above to subscribe calendars to these devices/calendars:
  • iPhone, iPad, iPod
  • Hotmail, Live, MSN
  • Yahoo!7 Mail
  • MS Outlook
  • Apple iCal, Mobile Me
  • Android phones and devices
  • Mozilla Cal (Thunderbird/Lightning/Sunbird)
  • Gmail (Google Cal)
Of course, there are many more calendar programs/devices that support VCAL/ICAL calendar subscriptions, so check the manual/options of the one you are using as it may be possible to subscribe to this link.
Once you have subscribed, all new events will automatically appear in your calendar without you having to add them.
Depending on your calendar software, you can manually add the time and date of the alarms and email notifications once the events are in your calendar.
Although we have tested with most of the above, there is no guarantee that it will work with your current device/setup/software version etc. as there are many factors that could prevent it from working, such as firewall restrictions, software/firmware updates etc... Also, some devices update every hour, others may take 24 to 72 hours.
