Personal Calendar Integration
You can set personal calendar applications to subscribe to a list of your upcoming sessions.
Supported applications include Apple iPad / iPhone Calendar, Evolution, Google Calendar, One Calendar for Windows 10 (Account type: WebCal), Mozilla Thunderbird (with Lightning), Outlook for Windows (Home -> Add Calendar -> From Internet), Outlook.com, Zoho Calendar, and any other application which has subscription support for iCalendar / ICS / WebCal. Please note several applications claim to have support, but they do not actually work, such as AOL Calendar, KOrganizer, Yahoo! Mail.
When you click on the "Personal Calendar" tab on the navigation bar, you will be presented with a link to a personal iCalendar / ICS / WebCal feed.
Paste this link into your calendar software subscription section. It is important to subscribe instead of performing a one-time import, as this link is to a feed which changes over time.
