How to Add a Teamup Calendar to a Facebook Page

If you are the administrator of a Facebook Page and are looking to add your Teamup Calendar as a custom tab to your fan page, like this live example, you’ve come to the right place. It takes 3 easy steps:

STEP 1: HAVE YOUR CALENDAR LINK READY

  1. Create a Teamup Calendar if you don’t have one yet.
  2. Using the administrator link for your calendar, go to Settings (menu sign in the top right corner), then Sharing.
  3. Right-click the ‘Reader’ link (pre-configured with read-only permission) and ‘copy link address’.

STEP 2: USE A TAB APP

Open Woobox’s custom tab app page from within Facebook, or another tab app of your choice.
The following instructions apply to Woobox:

Click on the green Install Page tab button and follow the on-screen instructions.


Select the Facebook Page (that you administer) that you’d like to add the tab to.



Click on the green button click to Configure your new Facebook Page Tab

STEP 3: PASTE YOUR CALENDAR LINK IN THE PAGE SOURCE

In the Woobox ‘EDIT TAB CONTENT’  screen, select ‘URL’ as the Page Source:

Paste the calendar link you copied in Step 1 into the Page Source as the URL to be loaded in the iframe window.  If your calendar link starts with http://, replace it with https://.
Click on ‘Save Settings’ and you’re done.

FACEBOOK TABS – KEEP IN MIND

  • You can return to the tab settings at any time by navigating to your new tab and clicking on Settings. This is how that looks with a Woobox tab:Facebook woobox settings link
  • As mentioned above, make sure to use https:// (Facebook requires you to provide a secure URL)
  • Be sure to use a read-only or other restricted-access link for your calendar. Using your administrator link would mean your Facebook visitors could make changes to the data and the settings in your Teamup Calendar which is a risk and something we do not recommend.
  • Adjust the size of your calendar for optimal display.
  • Change the name of your tab under ‘Tab Settings’ in the Woobox settings screen
  • Sort the order of your tabs in your Facebook Page by clicking on ‘Manage tabs’ under the ‘More’ menu on your Facebook Page.
  • Test the calendar tab in various browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

  • The settings for Woobox and Facebook are subject to change. If you notice a discrepancy in these instructions, please do let us know
  • When viewing a Facebook Page using the Facebook app on a mobile phone, custom tabs created with freely available tab apps are not displayed. This is a Facebook restriction. Please feel free to explore the paid options that Facebook offers for this purpose.
