First: Click Download Calendar on the FlipIt Calendar page to download the ics file to your computer.

To add to your Google Calendar

First, open Google Calendar on a computer. Note: You can only import from a computer, not a phone or tablet.

Open Settings

In the top right, click the gear icon, then click Settings.

Click the "Calendars" tab


Click "Import calendar"


Click "Choose File"


Select the file you exported

The file should end in "ics" or "csv".

Select calendar and import

Choose which calendar to add the imported events to. By default, events will be imported into your primary calendar. Click Import.

To add to your Outlook calendar

Double-click on the file that you downloaded to open it. It will automatically add to your Outlook calendar if Outlook is your computer's default calendar application.

To manually import the calendar into Outlook

If the calendar does not automatically open in Outlook, you can import it by following the instructions below.

Open Microsoft Outlook and go to File > Open > Import

Select "Import an iCalendar (.ics) or vCalendar file (.vcs)" and click "Next"


Select the downloaded calendar file

When prompted, browse for the iCal file that you saved to your computer and click Open (the file will have the file extension of .ics e.g. basics.ics).

Click "Import"


The dates from the iCal file will now be imported into your existing Outlook Calendar.
