How to add/sync a calendar to Google and Outlook.com

Start the year off with getting your calendars for holidays and events set-up in your calendar.

Let's take for example, how to add/sync the Formula 1 GP Race Dates to your calendar, which is conveniently available from https://www.f1calendar.com/.

After filtering you'll get a URL Link

Shareable internet calendars will give you an URL link to a downloadable .ics file. ".ics" file is an iCalendar general computer file format (not Apple's iCal format) which allows Internet users to send meeting requests and tasks to other Internet users by sharing or sending files in this format through various methods. 

Another suggestion is the NY Times Space Calendar

Now you can use this URL in Google and Outlook.

Using Google

Using Outlook Online

Using Outlook Desktop Client 

  1. Double-click on downloaded .ics file
