Schedulista provides a calendar to manage your availability and appointments, classes, and events. You can also access your calendar through the mobile app.

You can share your Schedulista calendar with other personal and work calendars you have using an iCalendar (iCal) feed. You can turn on your iCal feed through your Schedulista calendar on the web app and on the mobile app.

Benefits of the iCalendar feed

  • Share your Schedulista calendar with other calendars - Apple, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, mobile calendar apps, and more

  • Share your calendar with multiple calendars

What is an iCalendar feed?

iCalendar is a computer file format used to share calendar information between applications. For a period of time, Apple licensed the name iCalendar (and iCal) to name their calendar product.

iCalendar is supported by a large number of products, including:

  • Google, Yahoo, and other internet calendars

  • Microsoft Outlook through local (including Office 365) or Exchange

  • Apple Calendar (formerly iCal) for Macs, iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices connected to an iCloud account

An iCal feed is read only, sharing information one way. Schedulista appointments are shared with another calendar but not the other way around. When active, you will see a web address/URL ending in .ics for your iCal feed.

Note: We offer a two-way sync through Google Calendar.

How much appointment data is shared?

Your Schedulista iCal feed will share the following information with another calendar:

  • Client name and appointment service & duration

  • Appointments 6 months into the future

  • Appointments 2 months into the past

  • The next 10 occurrences in any repeating appointment series

  • If you have the two-way Google Calendar sync enabled, the Google appointments shared with your Schedulista calendar will also be shared through the iCal feed

For security and privacy, client contact information is not shared.

Each calendar on your account has its own unique iCal feed. Each must be turned on individually.
