Tip #158

Add web calendars to Vivaldi Calendar to view publicly shared events and schedules.

Web calendars, for example local public holidays or your favorite sports team’s match calendar, are a good way to follow events that you don’t want to add manually yourself, but would still like to know about. Web calendar events are read-only, meaning you can view them, but only the calendar owner can edit the events.

To subscribe to a web calendar from a website:

  1. Look for a Subscribe or similarly named button or link and click on it. Vivaldi Calendar will detect the action and offer to import the events.
  2. Select the calendar you want to import the calendar events to or create a new one.
  3. Click Import.

To manually add a web calendar:

  1. Go to Settings > Calendar > Calendar Accounts.
  2. Add a new account and select Web Calendar.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. Give the Calendar account a name.
  5. Enter the calendar’s link (make sure the URL ends with .ics).
  6. If the web calendar has limited access, enter your username and password. In case it’s a public calendar leave the username and password fields empty.
  7. Click Add Account.
  8. Select the calendars you want to sync with Vivaldi Calendar, which one’s to hide and which one is the account’s default calendar.
  9. Click Done.
