Subscribing to Team Calendars from your favorite third-party calendar app is a great way to view your Team Calendars events when you're not in Confluence. 

There are two ways to synchronize a Team Calendar with your calendar app:

  • Two-way sync (CalDAV) - allows you to view and update Team Calendars events in your calendar app.

  • One-way sync (iCal) - allows you to view but not update Team Calendars events in your calendar app.

Not all calendar apps support two-way sync (CalDAV) with Team Calendars. Apps that do support CalDAV should integrate with Team Calendars just fine. We've tested the following apps and can confirm they will integrate well:

Other calendar apps

If the calendar app you use isn't listed above, you may still be able to subscribe to Team Calendars. Check your app's documentation to find out whether it supports the iCal or CalDAV standard. If it supports iCal, then you should be able to set up one-way synchronization. If it supports CalDAV, you should be able to set up two-way synchronization. 

To subscribe to a calendar app that's not listed above:

In Confluence:

  1. Select Subscribe at the top of your calendar.

  2. Select either iCal or CalDAV from the Calendar app dropdown (check your calendar app's documentation to find out which standard it supports).

  3. Copy the Calendar URL.  

Then, in your Calendar app, follow the steps in your app's documentation to add or subscribe to the calendar. 

Timezones

Timezones can be confusing! Here's how we decide what time to display.

  • We display the time of an event in Confluence using the timezone set in your Confluence profile.

  • We display the time of an event in your calendar app using the timezone set in your app or device.

  • We store events using the timezone defined in the Team Calendar itself, and then convert them to the appropriate timezone when you view the event. 

You should always see the correct time, but if you change locations, make sure you update your Confluence profile so you don't see a discrepancy between your calendar app and Confluence.
