Skedda offers iCal feeds at both the venue level and individual level in order to pull booking information in a read-only manner into external calendars (Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, etc.). This is part of Skedda's Integrations add-on.

  1. Venue-level iCal feeds enable admins to pull all venue booking information (optionally filtered by space) into an external calendar.

  2. User-level iCal feeds enable each user to subscribe to and pull just their own bookings from Skedda into their external calendar.

For venue-level syncing, click into Settings > Integrations and copy the iCal link. Note that you can also filter by spaces if required (by default, bookings for all spaces are included in the feed):

For user-level syncing, your users will go into the 'My Profile' area and copy the link. This one only syncs calendar events that belong to that specific user.

Once you have the link, the next step will vary by application and version, however the general idea is to paste the link into the external calendar's feature for adding a calendar. This feature will be called something like 'Add by URL', 'Add external calendar' or 'Add calendar from internet'

In Google Calendar:

In Outlook: 

Once you've added the link to your external calendar, it will automatically fetch updated booking information from Skedda periodically. Note that external calendars do not respect Skedda's unique concepts (booking conditions, advance-notice policies, cancellation policies, dependencies between spaces, pricing conditions, quotas, custom fields etc.), so the sync is a one-way, read-only feed (from Skedda to the external calendar).
