The opportunities (Job Planner) iCal feed lets you see your opportunities on the calendar on your smartphone, computer, or other device.
By default, events on the iCal feed for opportunities will start and end based on the start and end date of the opportunity. For example, the event in my calendar app for the opportunity below starts July 10th and ends July 21st.
If you’d like to use other dates in the opportunity scheduler for your calendar events, like the delivery & collection dates or the prep & de-prep dates, you can add
end_attribute parameters to your iCal feed link.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to use the extended scheduler to use the

Go to the Job Planner by going to Opportunities > Job Planner.
Click the link that says iCal calendar feed for your opportunities at the bottom of the screen.
The long links on this screen are your iCal feed links. There are four, one for each type of opportunity: orders, quotations, drafts, and inquiries.
Copy the link you’d like to change and paste it somewhere safe, like a text editor.
At the end of your link
&start_attribute=immediately followed by one of the attributes below to set the date that should be used for the start of the event
&end_attribute=immediately followed by one of the attributes below to set the date that should be used for the end of the event
Once you’ve formed your iCal feed link, copy the entire link and subscribe to it in your calendar app, or pass it onto a colleague to do this in their calendar. See: Get an iCal feed for opportunities (job planner)

Where a date that you’ve used as an attribute in your iCal feed isn’t filled in, Current will use either the start or end date value.
