I’m really not sure how I missed this little trick all these years. Sometimes I spend significant bits of time doing something the hard way before I just take 20 minutes out of my day to ask or research the easy way.
I’ve known about .ics internet calendars for a long time. I’ve clicked on many. I have chosen to open them and that’s been fine, but only today I learned that I can add a reference to an .ics file in Outlook and from that point forward have a dynamic link to that internet calendar instead of a one-shot static view of those events.
I used this trick to bring all of my Meetup groups into my Outlook as a calendar that I can overlay with my Exchange and Live calendars. Now I’m sittin’ pretty.
Here are the steps…
- Get the URL to your online .ics file on your clipboard
- In Outlook right click on Other Calendars and Add Calendar
- Choose From Internet…
- Now just paste in your URL and the rest should be self-explanatory
