Configure Taskfeed Calendar Sync

Taskfeed Tasks can be viewed in many calendar applications including your mobile device such as iPhone, iPad or Android. This brings your Taskfeed Tasks conveniently into your day-to-day workflow.
  • To get started with Calendar Sync your Org must have  Public Share Services configured by your Org's Admin.

Calendar Sync Considerations

  • When External Sharing is enabled for your Org, a unique web link will be generated for each Taskfeed user. This URL will include the user’s Tasks in a format that can be imported into their own calendar apps such as Outlook, Apple Calendar, or Google Calendar. 
  • The Calendar Sync web link should be kept private to the individual, as anyone with the link will be able to see data relating to their Tasks.
  • Calendar Sync works with Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, most modern versions of Outlook, and any calendar app that allows you to subscribe by URL.
  • Calendar Sync is only updated in your calendar application when that application asks Taskfeed for an update. Different applications have a different frequency in which they will ask Taskfeed for updates. Some let you configure this so it's very frequent.
  • Calendar sync is one-way: as Due Dates change in Taskfeed they will be updated on your Calendar; however, you cannot make edits to a Taskfeed task from your calendar app.

Google Calendar Instructions

Note: Google Calendar does not currently offer either a user-configured auto-refresh interval or a manual refresh option. Even though the Google Calendar interface has a refresh icon, this button does not update subscribed feeds in Google Calendar, only your local Google Calendar. Currently, subscribed calendars may take up to 8 hours to be updated in Google Calendar. It is recommended to subscribe using a different Calendar Application to benefit from more frequent updates.
  1. In the left column, click on the Add link in the Other Calendars section.
  2. From the menu select Add by URL.
  3. Enter the feed URL in the dialog box then click Add Calendar.
