Exporting events

Having a calendar of events on your website is great. Wouldn't it be super awesome if you could get those events into a personal calendar as well?

How to Export Events

You're in luck. The Events Calendar PRO includes a nifty option for you and your visitors to export the events on your calendar in a flash. Visit your calendar and you'll notice a button at the bottom.

Click that button and it will download the events listed on the page as an .ics file.

If you're wondering what the heck an .ics file is, it allows you to import events into a calendar application, like Apple's iCal or Google Calendar. For example, here are the step-by-step instructions for importing an .ics file into a Google Calendar.

Syncing vs Exporting Differences

Note: There is a major difference between exporting events from your website calendar and syncing events to another calendar.  The changes you make to the calendar on your website will not sync to the personal calendar application.  In other words, you would need to download a new version of the .ics file and re-import it to your personal calendar. Syncing events is not currently a supported feature of The Events Calendar.

There you have it! You are now fully versed in exporting your calendar's events and importing them into another application.
