HOW TO SUBSCRIBE TO CALENDARS


Why Use a Subscribed Calendar

Most smartphones or electronic calendars have an option to add a subscribed calendar. Subscribing to an online calendar adds the events to your electronic calendar. Changes and added events made by the owner will automatically update on your calendar which means you don't have to manually add them, they just magically appear!
