Setup an iCal sync

Sync your coreplus calendar to a mobile phone or web calendar

Updated over a week ago

The coreplus calendar supports iCal standards, which allows iPhones/iPads or Android devices to view appointments via their calendar application. It can also be setup to sync to your Gmail or Outlook calendars.

💡 The iCal feed is one way and only allows for appointments to be viewed. Appointments accessible through an iCal feed cannot be updated, created or deleted from your device.

💡  Microsoft Outlook for Mac - Version 16.25 or later currently doesn't support the functionality of adding subscribed calendar URLs

🛑 Do not tick Make the calendar publicly accessible

5. Click on Add Calendar 

💡 As long as you've signed into your Google account on your Android phone, the calendar will sync across.

Syncing with iPhones and other Apple devices

1. From the Settings app, click on Calendar  
2. Click on Accounts > Add Account

How long does the sync for iCal take?

Although Google updates the calendar automatically from the coreplus feed, the timescales can be up to 12 hours and there is no manual way to force the update, except for removing and re-adding the iCal link.

💡 The way an iCal feed works is that is your calendar application (e.g. Google calendar) periodically requests an update of the information from coreplus. That is, coreplus can not push the data to your calendar, it's your calendar that requests it from coreplus.
