How do I merge external calendars?

The Merge External Calendar option allows you to subscribe to external calendars such as an institutional calendar, or a web calendar (Google, Outlook, etc.) in iCal format.

Note: This feature has some limitations:

  • It does not support all-day events.
  • It only supports events defined with <VEVENT>.
  • It does not support re-occurring events.
  • It does not support events without an end time.
