Subscribe to a public calendar

Public holidays, sporting fixtures and many other series of events are often published in iCalendar (ICS) format online. You can subscribe to these so they are shown directly in your FastMail calendar, and automatically updated if a new version is published.

  1. Find the URL of the public calendar you wish to subscribe to. A good search engine will help you here. Some governments publish an official ICS calendar for their public holidays; we've listed some of those below.
  2. Open the Settings → Calendar screen.
  3. At the bottom, select the option to Subscribe to a public calendar.
  4. Paste the URL into the text box that appears.
  5. Choose a colour and give the calendar a name.
  6. Click Create Calendar.

We'll check that this is a link to a valid calendar file, then create the calendar and sync over the events.
