Calendar Sync

At LeagueApps, we understand how participating in sports programs is often supplementary to your daily routine. Many of our users have a calendar app to keep things organized, and now participants can sync their LeagueApps schedule to a calendar app of their choice.

This sync has two options: Subscribe or Import.

Subscribe

Subscribing create a new calendar on your chosen calendar app with its own settings. If a calendar event is changed in LeagueApps, the subscribed calendar will auto update. The Apple, Google and Copy Link options are all subscriptions. 

1. Apple Calendar / iCal
2. Google Calendar
3. Copy Link

Import
Importing a LeagueApps Calendar adds events to a pre-existing destination calendar. After downloading the calendar file and importing it to your calendar app, the events will NOT update if changes are made in LeagueApps. 

1. Use the Download File option to import a calendar
