  • ChurchDesk can only deliver calendar subscriptions in a standard format, which can be read by established calendar systems such as Outlook and Google Calendar). We can't offer support on how to implement the calendar feed into various systems.
  • The calendar feed is updated immediately when there is a change. However it is the single calendar system that determines how frequently it updates your calendar with the latest information from our feed.
  • To ensure the fastest possible calendar feed it only includes calendar events up to 6 months ahead and 2 months of history.
