Appointments iCal Sync Integration - What is an iCalendar Feed
What is an iCalendar Feed
The CM iCal Sync Appointments Booking Add-on allows you to create an iCalendar feed for your calendars. In short, this allows you to share your calendar with other people and applications.
Technically, iCalendar is a file which allows users to share calendar information in a standard format. This file can be opened by different programs, such as calendar software and e-mail readers.
One example: a dentist can integrate his calendar "Appointments" with his Google Calendar account and share it with his assistant.
Example - Company Event Calendar
- National Public Holidays iCalendars - Hosts feeds for almost 50 countries.
- iCalendar.org - Has technical specifications and also tools such as a validator for feeds.
- Wikipedia's list of software that supports iCalendar.
