Topic: Q: is there importable calendar link?

Hi all. I am trying to add the CTCFT calendar to my own personal Google calendar, but the link from the site is not the kind of URL that Google wants. (Which is sort of amazing; one would think that Google would strive to handle arbitrary links to its own calendar system....)

Anyone have any luck getting a link they can import?

@pnkfelix You were able to use a "mailto" link to merge the calendar? It kept trying to launch an email client here.

oh, no. No mailto. I think zulip autoformatted my text

Bascially, just extracting the value passed via the src= in the url seemed to do the trick.

I keep getting invalid url when I try to add the calendar by url in google calendar.

view this post on Zulip Doc Jones (Jul 19 2021 at 14:36):

Maybe that's because it's not a url and I shouldn't be doing that.

Using add calendar worked tho. :blush:

Yeah, when using the "email address" Felix sent, you have to add the calendar through "Subscribe to calendar", not "From URL".

If you visit the link so it shows the embed calendar, in the bottom-right is a + to add it to your calendar
