Big Tent Tutorials: Downloading Your Calendar

BigTent offers a feature which allows you to download events from your personalized BigTent calendar to a format you can import into another application such as Outlook (for Microsoft users), iCal (for Mac users), or Google Calendar.

Here are the steps to download your BigTent events for import:

  1. Navigate to the “my calendar” page on BigTent.
  2. Click the ICAL icon: in the lower left corner of the screen. This will begin the file download.
  3. Save the file on your computer. If you are using Windows, make sure it saves with a .ics file extension, add the file extension to the filename if necessary.
  4. Open iCal, Google Calendar, or Outlook and locate the feature for importing a calendar. Select the file previously saved on your computer.
    For example, if you use Outlook, under the File menu, select “Import and Export”, and then select “Import an ICalendar” and then select the file and press OK. Exact steps to import a calendar may vary depending on what application you are using.
