Calendar Troubleshooting

Why can't I update Services events on my calendar?

When you subscribe to your Services calendar, the event information is pulled in to your personal calendar, and you do not have the ability to edit those events in your personal calendar. However, you can add notes or invite others to the event:

  • From Google Calendar, you can email people to invite them to the event, print or copy the event.

  • From iCal, you can click the link to view the plan that you are scheduled to.

I've already subscribed, but I can't see my calendar.

Make sure your personal calendar is set up to view your Services calendar events.

I'm logged in to Google, but I'm not able to subscribe.

Make sure that you are logged in to the Google account with the calendar that you want to use for Services events.
