Subscribing to and Publishing iCalendar (aka ICS) Feeds

Note: iCalendar is an IETF standard (RFC 5545) and not to be confused with Apple iCal. These articles explain how to subscribe to and publish iCalendar feeds, not how to export and import iCalendar files, which would be of limited use.

Having your calendar synced with Doodle is one of our most basic and useful features. This allows you to see your own appointments when you create and participate in polls, and to have the final date shown directly in your calendar. 

To see your Doodle meetings as events in your own calendar, go to your account settings under "calendars". At the bottom of this page, you can find your personal Doodle ICS link. Add this link to your personal calendar to see your Doodle meetings as events in your calendar. 

To see your own appointments when you create and participate in a poll, you can click on "ICS feed". Add the ICS link of your personal calendar here to see your own appointments when using Doodle.

Connect Outlook.com with ICS feed

Many other calendar applications follow a similar procedure to the one of Outlook.com. To find specific instructions for your calendar, check the website of your calendar or contact your calendar provider. 

*HINT: make sure you choose how often you want your calendar to update to changes made in Doodle. If you have chosen a final date in your poll, and you do not see it immediately in your calendar, try to check how often you have set your calendar to synchronize with the ICS feed. You can check this in the settings of your calendar.
