I’ve made this forum post to inform the other members about this fully functional Integration which I’ve built to help facilitate the coordination between important spaces within the ApeVerse and the Members who’d love to contribute more towards the discussion over there.
Will make some changes to the way I’ve implemented it but that won’t affect the User Experience. It’s like a fire and forget missile, but it isn’t a missile : )
Here’s how you do it →
1. Open Calendar 2. Click on calendars on the Bottom middle part of the screen 3. Select 'Add Calendar' -> Subscription Calender 4. Add in Airtable link and click Subscribe 5. Boom, That's all
Note : Do not Tap on the link and click add calendar when prompted to add 17 events, you won’t be updated if the timeline for those events shift in the future. Follow the steps put forth above.
Go to → https://calendar.google.com/
Click on Other Calendars
Select From URL
Add in the link → https://airtable.com/shrzEi5iHixfrkxyC/iCal?timeZone=Asia%2FCalcutta&userLocale=en-gb → Add Calendar
Note : The URL ends with Locale=en-gb
That’s all Folks !!
Ignore the timezone difference, It’ll be adjusted automagically to fit your time zone.
Since @adventurousape is having issues with this, I’ll look more closely into this and update this in time

Boom, That’s it frens
Here’s what’ll greet you in a couple of minutes.
This is calibrated for my Timezone (+5:30 GMT || +9:30 EST)
Sometimes the simplest implementation is also the best implementation.
This was the simplest implementation which would let us modify those records and that being reflected on the calendar itself. This ensures even if schedules change, the people can be notified.
I’ve done some validation testing and have derived that the changes made to the main db will be replicated within 5 minutes. That’s decent enough
This allows the user to stay upto date with all events happening within the ApeVerse and integrate this directly into their existing calendar apps , without having to put in a lot of effort for a custom implementation.
One could tie it up to a user facing website to display this information on a website proper. If anyone wants to tie this db within to their own integration, just hit me up and I'll help ya wherever I can.
Full Disclosure : I’m thinking of creating a template to tie this into atm but haven’t started work on it. Feel free to build around it, just include a thanks for me
Update Log : Added in a note and Import directions for Microsoft Outlook users. Hope this helps, Anky out
Update 2 : Added functionality for event coordination between various sub communities within our fold
