Never miss a rehearsal or accidentally make plans on a performance night by importing your Choir Genius events into your personal calendar program.

Find your iCal URL

Calendar programs use event data in a special format called "iCal" in order to copy events from one program to another. Choir Genius makes this data available to you in URL format so you can easily import your events from CG to your personal calendar program - such as google calendar for apple calendar.

You can find your specific iCal url link by going to your "Events and Attendance" page and the clicking the "iCal" button on the top right.

This link will not work if you just paste it into your browser - it can only be read be calendar programs

Copy your iCal URL

Next, highlight the underlined link, and copy it to your clipboard.

Paste the iCal URL into your personal calendar program

The process is likely very similar - look for an option to add a calendar or subscribe to a calendar using a URL.  We also recommend doing a quick google search or reviewing the help documentation for your specific calendar program for more detail.
