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 Google 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 Google calendar.
When you are synchronizing your Keep&Share iCalendar feed with your Google calendar, your published iCalendar feed transfers data out of your Keep&Share account to your Google calendar. However, because Google 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 Google calendar
First, you will need to copy the iCalendar feed for the Keep&Share Calendar that you want to publish to your Google 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 log into your Gmail account. In the upper right-hand corner of your Gmail account screen, you will see a small square icon that you can click on to access your Google apps, including your Google calendar. Follow the steps in the image below:
After you have clicked on the “Add Calendar” button, your Keep&Share Calendar will then be published to your Google calendar.
Keep in mind that how often your Keep&Share calendar updates in Google depends on how frequently Google fetches your Keep&Share iCalendar feed. Google has stated that it may take up to 12 hours for any iCalendar feeds to be updated. Unfortunately, Google does not have any way to speed up this sync rate at this time.
