How to Activate a One-Way Calendar Feed

The Rocket Matter calendar can be 'fed' into any calendar that accepts .ics feeds.  This is a one-way sync, where all your Rocket Matter calendar events are shared with an external calendar.  Not calendar events are synced back into Rocket Matter in a 1-way sync.

1.  Navigate to Settings, and click on "Manage Users".

Each Calendar program (i.e. Google Calendar, iCal) accepts external Calendar links from their unique location.  

1.  Sometimes, simply clicking the "Webcal Link" will automatically prompt your computer to set up the calendar feed.  If this occurs, simply walk through the system prompts to enable the feed.

2.  If your computer doesn't automatically prompt you to set up the calendar feed, then copy the calendar link, so you can navigate to your external calendar program, and insert it into the appropriate location.

The iCal location for setting up an external calendar is different from Google Calendar's location.  Following is an example of how Google Calendar accepts an external calendar feed:

a.  Copy  the .ics feed link

Right clicking the .ics lin will often allow you to copy the link.

b.  Navigate to Google Calendar

e.  Paste the .ics calendar link, and click "Add Calendar".

Tips:

 

1.  Be sure your Rocket Matter Calendar is displayed on your external calendar

2.  Create a test event on the Rocket Matter side to test the integration.
