Get your activities on your smartphone, computer, or other device by subscribing to your iCal feed. Often, you can set up reminders on your calendar app so you’re notified of your activities, too.
What is an iCal feed?
An iCal feed is a standard format for calendar data synchronization. It’s not something that we at Current RMS developed, it’s an open format that’s supported by most calendar apps.
How do iCal feeds work?
You subscribe to iCal feeds in your calendar app – that could be on your computer like Apple Calendar, in the cloud like Google Calendar, or on your mobile device like your iPhone.
Once subscribed, your calendar app periodically checks the iCal feed to see what’s new and updated. Those changes are updated in your calendar.
Find your iCal feed
Go to your user profile by clicking on your picture at the top-right and then choosing your name in the menu.
Click the link that says iCal calendar feed for service booking activities under Actions.
The long link on this screen is your iCal feed link. Copy this and subscribe to it in your calendar app, or pass it onto a contact to do this in their calendar.
⚠️ Keep your iCal feed link safe like a username and password. Only use it with trusted software and services.
Subscribe in calendar apps
How to subscribe to an iCal feed varies depending on the calendar app or device you’re using. Here’s some links to common guides:
- Google Calendar
Add someone else’s calendar
- Apple Calendar for Mac
Apple Calendar for Mac: Subscribe to calendars
- Outlook.com or Outlook on the Web

I’ve added an activity in Current but it’s not showing on my device, why?
When you add an iCal feed to your calendar app, it periodically checks the iCal feed to see what’s new and updated. Sometimes it takes calendar apps a little while to refresh the feed.
With some calendars you can change the refresh frequency, like in Apple Calendar.
Some calendar apps don’t allow you to change this, like Google Calendar.
You might need to wait a little while until changes are reflected in your calendar.
Can I change activities in my calendar?
iCal feeds are one way – data is synced to your calendar from Current RMS but appointments in your calendar aren’t pushed to Current.
