Publishing and Subscribing to a Calendar

You can create a calendar that lists all of your appointments with detailed information on the who, what, when, where, and why, of the meeting. You can also create a To Do list that helps you keep track of everything from household chores to the research you need to do for next week's big funding conference. But what good is that information, if you're out of town, and you forgot to bring your trusty PowerBook? By publishing your iCal calendar, you wouldn't have a problem. If you have a .Mac account, publishing your calendar gives you access to that information anywhere there's a computer and an Internet connection. In addition, if someone else has published a calendar, you can gain access to it by subscribing (). Not only does this give you access to your calendar, but any one that requires your scheduling information.

Publish a Calendar

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the iCal icon.

Click the Calendar menu, and then click Publish.

Select from the following Publish options:

  • Publish Name

  • Publish Changes Automatically

  • Publish Subjects And Notes

  • Publish Alarms

  • Publish To Do Items

  • Publish Calendar

Click Publish.

After publishing, a confirmation message appears saying that your iCal has been published. Click an option:

  • Visit Page

  • Send Mail

  • OK

Quit iCal.
