New feature — calendar subscriptions

You can now subscribe to the events calendar in your calendar program, so the branch socials will automatically appear in your diary (provided you don’t use a paper one, of course — we’re not that good!)

To subscribe, point your calendar program at the calendar subscription link.

iCal users, press Command-Option-S or choose Calendar > Subscribe… — then paste the link into the box and press Subscribe. You’ll be prompted to give your calendar a name, and choose how often you want it to auto-update (please don’t set it to any more frequent than once a day, or my ISP will probably do nasty things to me :)

Google Calendar users should click on the ‘+’ next to Other Calendars, paste the address into the box, and click Add then OK. (You’ll probably want to click on ‘Manage Calendars’ and give it a more useful name afterwards…)

I’m not sure how to do it in Microsoft Outlook — given that it’s not available for the Mac — but as far as I’m aware you can manually download the calendar and import it, but you can’t subscribe. I’ll have a look when I’m at work and see what I can do.

(If you’re interested, the plugin I’m using for this is Garrick Van Buren’s WP-iCal.)
