Adding Light Blue events to an Outlook Calendar
Light Blue’s in-built calendar is great for viewing all your Light Blue events, however you may want to also have these events showing in your Outlook Calendar so you can see everything you’re up to in the one place.
The great news is that rather than having to manually duplicate all these events Light Blue creates a calendar feed URL for your chosen Light Blue events which, once you’ve subscribed to, will automatically appear in your Outlook Calendar.
You can also have as many calendar feed URLs as you need! Handy if you want to split the Light Blue events out in particular ways to make them easier to view in Outlook Calendar or, for example, if you want members of your team to only view the Light Blue events applicable to them.
An important point to note is that the synchronisation is one way, i.e. Light Blue remains the source for your information and any changes you make in your other calendar app won’t be pulled back into Light Blue.
Creating and copying a Calendar Feed
- In Light Blue Preferences, click on “Integrations”.
- In the Calendar Feeds tab, click on the “Copy Feed URL” button.
- From the Detail Level dropdown menu choose the amount of information you want to include in the calendar feed URL.
- Check which Events, Resources and Shoot Types you want to include and whether you’d like an alarm to be added and click “Done”.
- Light Blue will then generate the unique calendar feed URL and copy it to your computer’s clipboard.
Subscribing to a Calendar Feed in Outlook
- Open your Outlook Calendar via Outlook.com and in the Navigation Pane chose “Add Calendar” followed by the “Subscribe from web” option.
- Paste in the Light Blue calendar feed URL and click “Import”.
- The chosen settings for your Light Blue events will now automatically appear in your Outlook Calendar and be updated any time you make a change in the Light Blue desktop or iOS app. NB. It’s important to note that Outlook can take up to 24 hours to update calendar feeds and remember that the synchronisation is one way, i.e. Light Blue remains the source for your information and any changes you make in your Google Calendar won’t be pulled back into Light Blue.
