How to get a link to a calendar
See the examples of some popular calendars.
Open Google calendar in your account.
Click on the gear icon in the upper menu and select Settings.
In "My Calendar Settings" , click on the calendar you want to view in SingularityApp.
If you want to view events from more than one calendar, you have to connect each one of them, because each one has an individual iCal link.
Another thing that makes us sad: Google doesn’t provide a link to the Birthdays calendar which is in the every default account. No idea why. But this is the reason why it is not possible to connect Birthdays calendar to SingularityApp. We hope sinserely that one day Google will make iCal links for this calendar too :)
Copy the link in iCal format. Google Calendar has different links in the iCal format: public (it is displayed for everyone if the calendar has public access enabled) and private (it is displayed only for users who are given a private access to the calendar by its owner). Any of them work, just remember if you want to connect a calendar using a public link, you should make the calendar public too.
If you want to connect a calendar on a corporate account you will need a corporate account administrator’s access.
Select Google Workspace from the list of applications.
In "All Applications Status for All Organized Events", select Calendar.
Open the access settings.
Click on "Edit in Parameters of External Access to Main Calendars".
Set the option "Share All the Information without Making Changes to Calendars".
Here is how to get an iCal link in Yandex Calendar
Click on the gear icon on the right of the calendar’s name. In the Settings window, select Export.
- That’s it! The link you need is the top one.
In Outlook calendar the link you need can also be found in Settings.
In the top bar, click on the gear icon on the right.
In the Publish Calendar section in Settings, select the calendar that you want to view in SingularityApp from the drop-down list. Set up Can View All Details, then click Publish.
The Settings window will be updated to display links for publishing the calendar. You need the bottom ICS link.
Please note: to be able to connect Outlook calendar it must be publicly available.
Open the "Today" folder to see what events are scheduled for today in your Google calendar.
Tasks are displayed on a darker background above all other tasks in the same order as they appear in the Google calendar.
They are marked with colored round labels. The label color of each task is the same as its cell color in the Google calendar.
Task names can have different colors and styles, depending on the status of the task:
- If the event is overdue, the task name will be gray.
- If this is an ongoing event, the task name will be in bold.
- If it is an upcoming event, the task name will appear as usual.
Open the "Upcoming" folder to see the events that are scheduled for the next two months in your Google calendar.
Note: If you get a meeting invitation that you declined, the event will continue to be displayed in the list. Unfortunately, there is no information in the iCal calendar link that the event is canceled.
Synchronization can be set up both on one device and on several ones. In the latter option, you have to set it up separately on each device.
So far, we have only one-way synchronization that enables you to view the Google calendar events in the planner.
SingularityApp will soon have a new release with two-way sync available. This means that you can edit and check events from your Google calendar like regular tasks in SingularityApp, and they will sync with all your devices.
We will keep you informed!
