Automatically add events to the calendar

It is possible to have events (and corresponding date suggestions) automatically included in your calendar. This works by adding an 'internet calendar' to your calendar application. As soon as a date is selected, the other date suggestions are automatically removed. To do this, having an account is necessary. If you don't have an account yet, you will have to create one first and confirm it before you can proceed with the instructions below.

Create an account

Internet calendar URL retrieval
  1. Sign in on the website
  2. Click on 'Account' in the top right corner

  4. Under the heading 'Internet calendar (calendar feed)', click on the 'activate' button (if applicable)
  5. Copy the URL that appears in the field
    By default, all occurrences (suggested and/or pinned dates) of your events are included in the internet calendar, until the date(s) of an event are finalized. Then, only the final date is shown. However, if for current events you want to see only suggested dates where you have indicated 'Yes' or 'Maybe' or only final dates, you can change this using the filter:
