What is MangoApps Sync to Calendar?

The Sync to Calendar option helps you stay on top of your events, milestones, and tasks with due dates by syncing them to calendars like Google Calendar, iCal, some versions of Outlook, and any calendar that allows you to subscribe by URL.

What do I need to know about it?

  • In order to use MangoApps Sync to Calendar, your calendar application must support iCalendar (Webcal) feeds.
  • Calendar Sync is one-way: updates to your calendar will not be reflected in MangoApps. You can see the items from MangoApps on your calendar, but you’ll need to use MangoApps to add or edit it.
  • Webcal feeds will include only items with due dates.
  • Webcal feeds will not include items marked as completed.
  • Calendaring services update at different frequencies, so due date changes may take a short while to appear on your calendar.
  • If subscriptions do not work, change webcal:// to http:// in the beginning of the subscription address.
  • iCalendar addresses are not password-protected, so be careful when sharing links to your calendar.

Where do I get the iCalendar (Webcal) address?

  • Events
Sync Calender
  • My Tasks
 Task Sync
  • My Milestones

What items from MangoApps get synced to my calendar?

You can choose to sync your calendar with Tasks, Events & Milestones from MangoApps.

What is the difference between sync your calendar & export calendar?

Export calendar will export all the calendar items that can be imported into your Outlook or iCal. However, the export calendar option needs to be updated periodically by exporting then importing items into your calendar. Unlike exporting your calendar, syncing your calendar will provide updates automatically.
