Office 365 (Apple Calendar 10.9) - Subscribing to an Internet calendar

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document explains how to subscribe to an Internet calendar in Apple Calendar for OS X 10.9.

Subscribing to an Internet calendar

  1. Open Apple Calendar, and from the Calendar menu at the top of the screen, select File and then click New Calendar Subscription. A dialogue box will appear.

  2. Enter the URL of the Internet calendar to which you would like to subscribe. These URLs may be from an internal (UW) ShareURL or from an external (non-UW) service. Once the URL is entered, click Subscribe. Examples of formatting are below:

    • Internal ShareURL: https://calendar.wisc.edu/share/u/DulQX1av4K799Q7r/dr(-14,30)?ical
    • External URL: https://example.com/calendar.ics

  3. An "Info" form will appear containing the settings for your newly-subscribed-to calendar. Here you may change the name and color of the calendar, change the subscription address, remove any alerts and attachments from the calendar, adjust the frequency with which the calendar refreshes its information, or you can choose to ignore alerts from the calendar. Adjust these settings if needed/desired, and click OK.
