Add iCal to Google Calendar

There are two ways to add Sportlyzer to your Google Calendar. 

Subscribing to a calendar using ical-URL

This short tutorial shows you how to subscribe to a public iCal Calendar with Google Calendar. First you need to have the iCal Calendar URL link that you can find on the availability marking page or you can request it from the coach. 

  1. Go to calendar.google.com.
  2. On the left side go to "Other Calendars" and click on the dropdown.
  3. Choose "Add by URL".
  4. Enter the URL of the calendar, which you want to subscribe to.
  5. Click on "Add Calendar" and wait for Google to import your events.

 

Importing an ICS-file to your calendar

In some cases you might like to import and .ics calendar file. For example when you want to add only a single file. But remember that this provides a snapshot of the events in the calendar at the time of import and these events are not updated automatically.

By clicking on the Subscribe to my training schedule button, your computer will import the .ics calendar file to your device. Save the file to an easy location and go to your Google Calendar at calendar.google.com. 

  1. On the left side go to "Other Calendars" and click on the dropdown.
  2. Choose "Import calendar".
  3. Click on "Choose file" and locate the .ics file on your computer.
  4. Click on "Import" and wait for Google to import your events.

 

If the calendar are not showing up on Mac, iPhone and iPad

Apple products' owners, after you have subscribed to a calendar in Google Calendar it may not show up on your devices. This happens because Google turns sync off by default for new calendars, particularly shared ones. But there's a fix:

  1. Log in to Google Calendar in a web browser.
  2. Change the URL on the browser address line to: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/syncselect
  3. Tick the calendar called "Training schedule..."
  4. Save.

It can take a few minutes before the calendars appear. You may also need to close and re-open the calendar app.

 

NB! The sync takes time

The sync cycle of Google Calendar is around 24h. After an event in Sportlyzer is changed you still have to wait till Google Calendar syncs with Sportlyzer to see the change yourself.
