How do you subscribe to an iCalendar feed?
When viewing the schedule for a day, this iCal button will be shown for each court.
Option 1: click the iCal button. This is easy, but it may not work. Outlook (or other desktop calendaring programs installed on your computer) may be set up to automatically launch and add that calendar.
Option 2 (if option 1 doesn't work): add the feed manually. Most calendar tools (e.g. Outlook, Google calendar etc) provide a way to do this
Right-click on the iCal button and copy the link location/address/URL. If you paste the copied link text somewhere, you see something beginning with "webcal://" and ending in "calendar.ics".
Check the help resources for your calendar tool to learn how to use that URL to subscribe to the calendar. , here are some links which may help you set things up:
Google- see the "Using a link" section of this help page. You may need to change the end of the link to "google_calendar.ics" instead of "calendar.ics" in order to get it to work.
Outlook 2016 (per a Microsoft support post): click File >Account Settings > Account Settings>Internet Calendars > click New. Paste or enter the address for internet calendar
