There are a wide variety of publicly available iCalendar-formatted files available online. The Add Public Calendar feature enables you to quickly browse and add many popular public calendars to your calendar list. There are holiday calendars for many countries, calendars for the major religions, local weather, sports calendars (NFL, NHL, NBA, PGA, etc.), and many others. If the calendar you're interested in is not listed, you can always either subscribe to it, or import it.
When the Add Public Calendars window is first displayed there
may be a slight delay as the latest calendar list is downloaded. An
Abort button is provided to cancel the download. After the
calendar list is successfully downloaded and processed, the
window will appear as shown below.
An expandable list of categories is displayed on the left side of the screen. Simply click a category and it will expand to show the available calendars associated with that category.
To view more information about a calendar, click the calendar's name in the list. The window will update on the right to show the selected calendar's name, description, and online source or author.
After you've found a calendar you'd like to add, click the "Add Calendar" button.
The button will change and the calendar icon in the list will
update to indicate the calendar has been added. Clicking the
button again will remove the calendar.
A new subscription will be created and the calendar will be added to your calendar list. The subscription will default to updating every week, which can be adjusted from the Calendar Properties window. You can continue adding as many calendars as you'd like. When finished, click the Close button to close the window. If you decide later that you don't want a calendar, you can delete it by using the Delete command on the main toolbar.
A special "Webcals" category is available at the bottom of
the list on the left side of the Add Public Calendars
window. Items under this category will appear in a web
browser, where hundreds of additional calendars can be
browsed or added. Many of the available calendars are
location-aware, such as local weather or sunrise/sunset
Follow the steps below to add a local weather forecast to VueMinder. Similar steps can be used for adding other calendars.
