Your CollegePlannerPro calendar can be linked to an external calendar you may already be using or are planning to use. This will allow events from your CollegePlannerPro calendar to display on your Google Calendar for example. In order to link the calendars, you will need to add a link URL to your external calendar so it knows how to retrieve your CollegePlannerPro events. This is a two-step process.
NOTE: Your students can also do this with their CustomCollegePlan calendars.
- You will need to get the linked calendar URL for your CollegePlannerPro calendar. To get your linked calendar URL, log in to CollegePlannerPro and click the “Calendar” tab. In the toolbar, click on the "Link My Calendar" button. This will open a window that contains the URL you will need to link the calendars. “Copy” the URL for the calendar you are linking your CollegePlannerPro calendar to.
- Go to or launch the external calendar you would like to link your CollegePlannerPro calendar to. Follow the steps below for your selected calendar type.
Here's a visual guide on how to link your CollegePlannerPro account with your Google Calendar:
Login to your Google calendar account. When viewing the calendar main screen you will see in the left column (next to the calendar grid) a section called, “Other calendars.” Click the “+” (Add other calendars) link in this section. This will open a set of options. Select “From URL.” Paste the copied URL from step one into the “URL of calendar” field.
Apple iCal (Older Mac OSX - 10.6 & 10.7)
In iCal, click the “Calendar” option in the top menu bar and select “Subscribe.” Paste the copied URL from step one into the “Calendar URL” field. Follow the steps to customize color settings and behaviors.
Apple Calendar (Newer Mac OSX - 10.8 - 10.10)
In Calendar, click the “File” option in the top menu bar and select “New Calendar Subscription.” Paste the copied URL from step one into the “Calendar URL” field. Follow the steps to customize color settings and behaviors.
IMPORTANT: If you are linking your CollegePlannerPro calendar directly with phone/tablet be sure to set the "Location" value to, "On My Mac". This will prevent duplicate entries for your events.
Login to your Yahoo! account. If “Calendar” is not an option in the left column on the Yahoo! main page then click the “Mail” option. In the lower-left column, there is a list of Applications, select “Calendar.” Once at the calendar screen you will need to click the “+” icon next to “Calendars” in the left column and select, “Subscribe to Calendar.” Paste the copied URL from step one into the “Email or iCal Address” field and click next. Give your calendar a name in the “Display as” field and be sure to click the “Save” button in the upper left corner to set the subscription.
Use the "Discover Calendars" option to import a calendar "from web". Please see Microsoft's documentation for more detail:
