Integrating With iCal

Overview

Sugar calendars can be shared and viewed with various iCal-compatible calendar applications such as Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, Yahoo! Calendar, and Mozilla Thunderbird. Sugar's calendar events are viewable as read-only in the external calendar applications and any edits to events must be made in Sugar.

Steps to Complete

To view the Sugar calendar in an external calendar application, obtain the iCal Subscription URL from your Sugar profile.

Use the following steps to integrate the external calendar application with your Sugar calendar:

  1. Log in to your Sugar instance and click the user profile image on the upper right then select "Profile".

Once the URL is added, you will be able to view your Sugar calendar within the external calendar application.
