Updated: 12H/24H time display, New event dialog, and export file filename.

A tool to create iCal (iCalendar .ics) event file has been updated.

1. 24 Hour Clock (military time) time display.
You can now choose either 12H (AM/PM) time display or 24H time display.
Use the following switch to change the display on the page:






2. New Event Dialog.
When "Save" is clicked, the dialog will remain open to make it easier to enter multiple events at once.
"Save & Close" will close the dialog after saving it.



















3. Download file name.
The tool will now use the "Title" field as a file name for the download.

All of the changes were made possible because of the suggestions I got through the feedback I received.

Thank you!

Hello, Olá, こんにちは - Portuguese and Japanese support

iCal Maker tool has been from the beginning an application which was able to create event feed (.ics) in many different languages, however until now it had only English interface.

Now the application's interface has been translated to Portugues and Japanese.

I hope this will be helpful to some people.

Special thanks to Rodrigo for providing the Portuguese translation!

If you are interested in providing translation for other languages, please let me know.

Feed iCalendar (.ics) file with dropbox

It is easy to host an iCalendar feed so other people can subscribe to it, even if you don't have your own hosting environment.

One solution is to use dropbox.

Dropbox allows you to share your files publicly by putting the files in the 'Public' folder.

*Update 3/6/2013*
I just realized that Dropbox made a change to how you can make your file public.
The following method can still be achieved, but for some the instruction might be little different.
Please read dropbox's article about this.
*End Update*

Here is how you can do this using the iCalendar feed creator tool. You can also use any other tool that can generate an .ics file.

  1. Create some events you want to share.

  2. Click "Generate iCal" button.
  3. Click "Download iCal File" to start the download.

  4. Save the file to your dropbox's Public folder.

  5. Navigate to the downloaded file, right click and choose "Copy Public link". This will put the public url of this file into the clipboard.

    The link will look something like this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/XXXXXXXX/myevents.ics


     
  6. Share the dropbox link to people who you want to share the event with. Many calendar application will allow you to subscribe to the iCalendar events (feed) hosted with dropbox.

    Note: the events will be public. Anyone who knows (or who can figure out) the url can access the feed.
