Sharing Your Calendar
Once you've started entering events into BandHelper, you can use it as the source to populate other calendar software or websites.
Calendar software that uses the iCalendar format can display your BandHelper events. This allows you to see your band's events and your personal events on a single calendar. Here are instructions for setting up a few common systems. If you notice that these instructions have become outdated, please .
Note: You can exclude some categories of events from the iCal feed by going to Events > Categories > [category name] and turning off the Include in iCalendar feed setting.
Apple Calendar (Mac)
Apple Calendar (iOS)
Google Calendar (web)
Note: Google Calendar doesn't support floating times, so all times will be relative to the user's time zone defined in BandHelper and will shift if the user views the calendar from a different location.
Note: Google Calendar doesn't update very often and you can't manually refresh it, so events added to BandHelper might not appear on the Google Calendar for a day or more.
Outlook Calendar (web)
If you manage your band's website, you can set it up to automatically show your upcoming events as you enter them into BandHelper.
If you want even more control over the display of your events, you can use the JSON Feed URL included on the widget setup page, instead of the widget code. You would then be responsible for parsing and presenting the data as you wish.
