Calendar Setup

(Updated 7/8/2014)

If you use iCal (or any calendar software that support the ical format) you can subscribe to the PMUG calendar.

  1. Copy this link to the clipboard:
  2. Open Calendar (iCal)
  3. If you have an existing subscription, delete it.
  4. In Calendar, choose File > New Calendar Subscription.
  5. Paste the calendar's web address from Step #1 in the box for the Calendar URL and then click Subscribe. Do NOT double click on the link as that will add it to the calendar in the wrong way.
  6. Enter a name for the calendar in the Name field and choose a color from the adjacent pop-up menu.
    • If you have an iCloud account, choose whether you want the calendar on that account.
    • To view a subscription calendar in Calendar on your Mac and on devices with iOS 5 or later without resubscribing to it, choose your iCloud account.
    • To get the calendar's event attachments or alerts, deselect the appropriate Remove checkboxes.
    • To update your copy of the calendar when changes to it are published, choose the update frequency from the Auto-refresh pop-up menu.
  7. Click OK.
  8. To make changes to the calendar, click the name of the calendar, and then choose Edit > Get Info.
