Want to view the read-only version of a third-party calendar within Calendar with no need to switch between them? You can add the iCal feed link of this calendar to Calendar and save your time and effort tracking all the events from both calendars. Read the instructions below to do that.
Bare Bones Instructions

Where can I get the iCal feed link of my Google, Apple iCal, or Yahoo! calendar?
You can get the iCal feed link of the needed calendar in the following way:
- Google Calendar - click the icon in the 'Private Address' section of calendar settings (if your calendar is publicly shared, you'll need to click the same icon within the 'Calendar Address' section) and copy the link displayed.
- Apple iCal Calendar - choose 'Publish' from the 'Calendar' menu. In the resulting dialog, type a name for your calendar in the top field, choose to publish it on your own server from the 'Publish on' pop-up menu, select any of the other options you want, and then click 'Publish'. When iCal finishes publishing, a dialog opens and displays the URL for your calendar.
- Yahoo! Calendar - open the drop-down list next to the needed calendar, select 'Edit Calendar', switch to the 'iCalendar and Web Address' tab and copy the link displayed.
What is the difference between importing/exporting calendars and adding an iCal feed link?
After exporting or importing events from calendars, you can edit them as you need and the changes will be applied to the exported/imported events only (not to the original events), while after adding a feed link into a calendar, you will be able to view the events only – to edit an event, you will need to make changes in the original calendar, and they will become visible in Calendar.
