How Do I Link My Schoology Calendar to a Different Calendar?

You can link your personal Schoology Calendar to a different calendar tool, such as your Outlook, Apple Calendar (previously called iCal), or Google Calendar, so that changes you make in Schoology will automatically update in your other calendars, as well.

The only calendar currently supported for this feature is the Personal Calendar. This means that events on a Group, Course, or School Calendar will not be exported when sharing your calendar unless the events are also on your Personal Calendar.

Note: The sync only runs one way, from your personal Schoology Calendar to your Outlook, Apple, or Google Calendar. Changes made in your other calendars are not replicated in Schoology.

To Generate a URL in Schoology to use to link to external calendars:

  1. From any page in Schoology, click the arrow in the upper-right corner and select Account Settings.
  2. In the Share Your Schoology Calendar area, click Enable.
  3. Copy the URL in the Use this iCal link pane.
Note: The Share Your Schoology Calendar setting only works if you have at least one entry in your personal Schoology Calendar. If the Calendar is blank, you cannot link it or access it from other calendars and an error message will display when you try.

To link your personal Schoology Calendar to your Outlook Calendar:

  1. Open your Outlook Calendar.
  2. In the Manage Calendars area, click Open Calendar and then select From Internet.
  3. Paste the URL you copied from Schoology into the New Internet Calendar Subscription field and click OK.

To link your personal Schoology Calendar to your Apple Calendar:

  1. Open your Apple Calendar.
  2. From the File menu, select New Calendar Subscription.
  3. Paste the URL you copied from Schoology into the Calendar URL field and click Subscribe.
  4. Change the Auto-refresh frequency to Every Day and click OK.

Updates to your Schoology calendar will now display in your Apple Calendar.

To link your personal Schoology Calendar to your Google Calendar:

  1. Log in to your Google Account and navigate to the Calendar.
  2. Click the down-arrow next to Other Calendars.
  3. Select Add by URL.
  4. Paste the URL you copied from Schoology into the field.
  5. Click Add Calendar.

Updates to your personal Schoology calendar will now display in the Other Calendars section of the Calendar list.

Note: It may take up to 8 hours for changes in Schoology to display in your Google Calendar.
