Each Calendar in your Keep&Share account has a unique iCalendar link that you can copy and use to publish to other online calendar feeds, such as your Microsoft Outlook calendar. This iCalendar feed is an industry-standard format for exchanging calendar information and serves as a direct connection between your Keep&Share calendar and your Microsoft Outlook calendar.
When you are synchronizing your Keep&Share iCalendar feed with your Microsoft Outlook calendar, your published iCalendar feed transfers data out of your Keep&Share account to your Microsoft calendar. However, because Microsoft Outlook calendars do not have all the features that Keep&Share has, they will not accept all of the data, and some of your data will not be visible in the new program, e.g. color coding or more than 100-200 characters of text for events or Day Notes, depending on the program's limits.
Note: the iCalendar feed feature is available only to paid Keep&Share accounts.

Publishing your Keep&Share Calendar to your Microsoft Outlook calendar
First, you will need to copy the iCalendar feed for the Keep&Share Calendar that you want to publish to your Microsoft Outlook calendar. You can do this by accessing your Calendar’s “Customize” screen. You can copy the link to either your public or private iCalendar feed. Follow the steps in the image below:
Once you have copied your Keep&Share iCalendar feed, you will then need to open your Microsoft Outlook calendar application on your desktop. Once your Microsoft calendar is open you will need to right-click on the calendar name, pull right on “Add Calendar," and then click on the “From Internet" option. After that, follow the steps in the image below:
After you have clicked on the “OK” button, your Keep&Share Calendar will then be published to your Microsoft Outlook calendar. If your Outlook calendar is having Time Zone issues (ex. Time Zones are off), learn more about Outlook Compatibility Mode.
How often your Keep&Share iCalendar feed updates in an external calendar program is entirely dependant upon the host calendar. This means that it could take as much as 12 hours for your iCalendar feed to update. Keep&Share does not have any control over how often your iCalendar feed updates in external programs.
