How it works
Do you use a calendar on your computer, phone, or tablet?
Do you spend ages copying over all the events on to you calendar?
Well now you can subscribe to the our events calendar. This will automatically write and update all the Quantock events onto your own calendar. You may need to repeat this to get new events added, it depends on your particular calendar setup.
This will either automatically take you to the subscription details on your calendar.
If clicking on the link takes you to another webpage. Then copy the link and paste it into the subscription window in your calendar.
Or it may download a file called calendar.ics, once downloaded click on it to start the process, or use it to import the dates into other calendar applications like Gmail etc.
Examples of computer calendars are: iCal on iphones and ipads and Macs; Outlook Calendar on Windows machines; or Google calendar.
Further details of these calendars and others can be found here:
or do a Google search for "ics calendar subscription".
