Grandstand offers a unique solution for getting your event schedules into our platform. We now offer the ability to import data from any public Google Calendar on-demand. Here's how it works:
Step 1: Make sure your calendar is public on Google
Step 2: On your Google Calendar Settings find the "Public URL to this Calendar" and collect the code between "src=" and "&ctz=". Send this code to your Grandstand representative with the name of the Grandstand Admin Calendar Group and default "Category" to add all imported events to.
Step 3: Once your Grandstand representative has validated this setup a button will be added to your Event page that says 'Fetch Google Calendar Events'. Each time you press this button Grandstand will refetch all events from a period of 60-days back to 500 days in the future (with a limit of 500 total events imported). Any events imported from Google Calendar in the past will be replaced.
Step 4: Don't forget to hit Update Events in App after doing the Fetch.
Here are some additional notes about how this import works:
We are working on additional features for our Google Calendar integration and would love to hear your ideas for how to improve this valuable tool!Events
