It is possible to feed calendar data from Teamup to other calendar applications, for example Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook or Apple’s iCal. This is achieved using iCalendar feeds. iCalendar feeds are read-only and provide a periodic automatic synchronization between the source calendar (Teamup) and a third calendar application. This article describes how you obtain iCalendar feed URLs from Teamup and configure third calendar application to read them.
Please note that currently only the Web interface of Teamup provides the iCalendar feed URLs. If you are using either the iOS app or the Android app please open the calendar using a web browser before proceeding.
How to get the iCalendar Feed URLs
You can get the iCalendar Feed URLs by clicking the blue menu button in the top right corner of your calendar and then selecting iCalendar Feeds (see screen shot below). If the iCalendar Feeds menu item is not active in your menu, then this feature has been disabled for your calendar. Ask the administrator of your calendar to enable it.
How to add iCalendar Feeds to Other Calendar Applications
This section describes how you configure various calendar applications to using iCalendar feeds provided by Teamup. Steps:
1. Copy iCalendar feed URL from Teamup
2. Paste the feed URL into the feed address field of the subscribing calendar applications. For specific help see:
1. Open File, select New Calendar Subscription
2. Paste the URL you copied from your Teamup Calendar feed, click Subscribe
3. On the next screen, edit the name, etc. and choose the auto-refresh frequency (from every 5 min. to every week). Click OK.
See also instructions from Apple. If you’d like to have iCloud to push a Teamup Calendar feed to all your Apple devices, subscribe it on your Mac (not on iPhone or iPad), make sure to choose “iCloud” as the Location as described here.
To change the update frequency on Mac OS:
- Select the calendar in the sidebar and then choose Get Info from the Edit menu
- If you selected a subscribed internet calendar, you will see an Auto-refresh popup menu
- Select your desired refresh frequency from the Auto-refresh pop-up menu
- Click OK to save your changes
To remove a feed from iCal:
- click Calendars on the top left. Your subscribed Teamup Calendar appears under Other or iCloud.
- Select the calendar you want to delete
- Choose from menu Edit -> Delete.

Apple iPad / iPhone
For iPhone users, in most cases tapping the Teamup iCalendar feed URL will launch the calendar application and the feed subscription dialog appears. If that is not the case for you, follow these steps:
- On the Home screen, tap Settings.
- Tap Accounts & Passwords.
- Tap Add Account.
- Tap Other.
- Choose Add Subscribed Calendar.
- Enter or paste the iCalendar feed URL from your Teamup Calendar in the field “Server“.
- Tap Next. If you want to enable reminders, turn on the Events Alerts (make the button green so that you can set up reminders) and done.
After you have done the above, your subscribed Teamup Calendar appears on the phone’s or iPad’s default calendar app iCal. If you like you can then set color for the calendar, or turn the Event Alerts button on or off as you wish.
If you are subscribing to a Teamup iCalendar feed that contains multiple sub-calendars, the colors for each sub-calendar on your original Teamup Calendar will be lost. Instead, you can assign one color from your iPhone/iPad for the entire Teamup Calendar feed.
To change the update frequency: In step 3, tap “Fetch New Data” instead of Add Account. Scroll to the bottom and select the fetch frequency.
