Subscribing to your Insightly calendar feed

You can use this feature with any Insightly and Gmail/G Suite account. A connection from G Suite to Insightly isn't required.

Customers without Calendar Sync on their accounts can view the Insightly calendar in any calendar tool that supports the iCalendar/webcal standard or HTTP calendar feeds. (The key word here is "view." You can't change anything on the calendar.)

Apps like Google Calendar, Outlook, Apple calendars, and mobile apps will usually update the calendar items about once a day.

If you have a paid subscription to Insightly, you will see the sync options instead.

To subscribe to your Insightly calendar feed:

  1. Check the documentation for your calendar program to determine whether you will need an address in the webcal or HTTP format. You can also try each of them to see which one works for you.
  2. Click the Insightly calendar icon. You'll find the subscription links on the lower left, below the calendar. Customers with paid accounts will only have the sync option below the calendar and cannot subscribe to a feed.
  3. If your calendar app accepts webcal addresses, like the one below, right-click Subscribe to iCalendar Feed and copy the link. Clicking the link might also open the correct app, depending on the configuration on your device.

    webcal://calendar.insight.ly/calendars/Tasks/*YourCalendarID*

      

    If your calendar app accepts HTTP calendar addresses like the one below, click Add to your Google Calendar. This will take you to a page with a URL to copy.

    http://calendar.insight.ly/calendars/tasks/*YourCalendarID*

  4. Look for an option in your calendar app like "Subscribe to Calendar" or "Add by URL" and paste the calendar address in the appropriate field.

    Here's how that looks in Google Calendar:

      

    The Insightly calendar will now display in your list of calendars, where you can hide it, change the colors, or remove it from your calendar settings page.

      

    If you have any trouble after trying both the webcal and HTTP address, you can reset your calendar address using the directions below and try the process again. 

Resetting your calendar address

If you want to stop sharing your Insightly calendar with an external calendar, or if you encounter an error, you can reset your calendar address from the Tasks page. To reset the address:

  1. Go to the Tasks tab.
  2. Click Add Tasks To Google Calendar in the right sidebar. A message dialog will open.

  3. Click the link at the end of the sentence: "...you can create a new URL by clicking here." This will change the calendar address in the message and on your calendar page.
