How to Manage Calendars in Cloud Mail

Share

Overview

To keep track of meetings and appointments, we utilize our calendars. They are also used by us to keep track of team activities, events, and timetables. By saving private and professional appointments separately on your calendar, you may organize your appointments. You will discover how to add calendars, subscribe to shared and public calendars, add external calendars, and import calendars from files in this post.

On the left menu of the calendar application, you may access both new and current calendars. To access your calendars, if you don't see a list of them, click the icon labeled "Open Folder view" in the lower left corner of your calendar application.

For more information, please select from the options below.

Adding Calendars

To create a calendar, follow these steps:

  1. Once logged in to Cloud Mail, click the Calendar icon on the top left portion of your mail.
  2. When the Folder view is active, you may access your list of calendars from the left menu. If not, open the Folder view by clicking the icon labeled Open Folder view in the lower left corner of your calendar application.

  5. Click Add.

You have added a new calendar. Your calendar will automatically show in the Folder view under My Calendars.

Importing Calendars from Files

Calendars generated by programs that support iCalendar can be imported. You can share calendars with other users using the iCalendar (iCal) file type. The .ics extension is used for iCal files. It is supported by a number of products, including Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, and more.

Important: The calendar you want to import must be available as an iCal file. An iCal file typically ends in .ics.

To import calendars from a file, follow these steps:

  1. Once logged in to Cloud Mail, click the Calendar icon on the top left portion of your mail.
  2. When the Folder view is open, your list of calendars will be visible on the left menu. If not, access the Folder view by clicking the icon labeled Open folder view in the lower left corner of your calendar application.
  3. Import File can be chosen by clicking the drop-down arrow next to the New Appointment button.
  • Alternatively, you can choose Import File by clicking on the Settings icon.

  3. Click Import.

The imported calendar will automatically be added to the Folder view under My Calendars.

Adding Yourself to Shared and Public Calendars

You can use calendars that are public or shared by other users as follows:

  • If you have subscribed to a public or shared calendar, it will show in your Folder view under Shared or Public calendars.
  • If you have subscribed to a public or shared calendar, you can set whether the calendar will be synchronized with other clients (e.g., with your smartphone).
  • If you no longer need to subscribe to a public or shared calendar, you can cancel it.

To set the calendar you want to subscribe to, follow these steps:

  1. Once logged in to Cloud Mail, click the calendar icon on the top left portion of your mail.
  2. You will see your list of calendars on the left menu when the Folder view is open. If not, click the Open Folder view icon on the lower left corner of your calendar app to open the Folder view.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow beside the New Appointment button, then select Subscribe to shared calendar.
  • Alternatively, you can click on the Settings icon and select Subscribe to Shared Calendar.
    • Subscribe to Shared Calendar
  1. If you want a calendar displayed in the Folder view, enable the Subscribe to Calendar toggle. To define that a displayed calendar is synchronized, enable the Synchronize via DAV checkbox. Disable the Subscribe to Calendar toggle if you no longer want a calendar displayed and synchronized. Subscribe to the toggle.
    Sync via DAV

You have set the shared or public calendar you have subscribed to.
