To get Apple calendar events into Shovel, you'll need to add them to Google Calendar first. We do not have a direct option yet.

Step 1: Get your Apple calendar link

Step 2: Add Apple calendar link to Google calendar

Step 3: Connect Google Calendar to Shovel

Step 1: Get Your Apple Calendar Link

To get your events into Google Calendar you'll first need to get a link (URL) of your Apple Calendar. You can do this either via your Apple Calendar desktop app or your icloud account.

Option 1: Get your Apple Calendar URL via Desktop/laptop App

1. Open your Apple Calendar Desktop/Laptop app 

2. In the left sidebar, click the icon next to the calendar you want to share

3. Make sure the the "Public calendar" is checked

4. Copy the URL link

2. In the sidebar, click the "+" next to "Other Calendars

3. Select "From URL" in the dropdown

You can modify the name of the calendar in Google by clicking (3 dots) next to the calendar and then selecting "settings"

Sync between Apple Calendar and Google Calendar can take up to 12 hours. We know this can be frustrating but please note that it is not Shovel's fault. 

Step 3: Connect Google Calendar to Shovel
