Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler

Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 6/20/09 3:11 PM
Is there a way to set Google Calendar to be the default webapp to handle .ICS files so that I can open them directly with Google Calendar rather than having to download them first?  I know that you can register gmail to be the default protocol handler for mailto links in Firefox by entering this code in your gmail window:

javascript:window.navigator.registerProtocolHandler("mailto","https://mail.google.com/mail/?extsrc=mailto&url=%s","GMail")

Is there analogous code using registerContentHandler for .ICS files and google calendar?

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler binarymonkey 10/10/09 10:04 AM
A desktop application could easily be written that registers itself as a content handler for .ics files and could be configured to import directly to your Google Calendar account. This would probably take a couple of days for someone to write. Pretty shocked Google hasnt closed this gap yet...

This problem is so annoying that I decided to write this message.

I don't typically write whiny messages when I encounter interwebs problems.

Which means it's a pretty annoying problem.

So there.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler ercook 12/2/09 11:35 AM
If the .ics file comes via Google Mail, unless I'm wrong, there is an option in the right column to add the appointment to your calendar. it's not a fix, but seems like a reasonable workaround.

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler monika7 1/19/10 9:35 AM
I have mixed results. If a meeting invite was sent to my Google Apps email, I can usually add the meeting to the Google Calendar, but today I have received an ics files as an attachement and I didn't have an option to directly import it into Google Calendar.
I am using Firefox 3.x on Windows but I saw the same behavior in Firefox on Mac. It would be great if an ics attachment could be imported into Google Calendar directly from email.





Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler john3 1/21/10 2:37 PM
Gmail should import .ics attachments!
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler kmstein 1/26/10 9:39 PM

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler rpiegaia 3/9/10 7:25 AM
Is anybody at Google reading these posts?
Would be nice a short reply like "feature soon to be added", "working on this" or "don't expect anything along this line".

Although it seems like a pretty reasonable functionality we are talking about, maybe they don't want to implement it.
They have the right to.

And we have the right to decide whether it's worthwhile to shift to their technologies.

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler mivilobos 3/20/10 6:23 AM
I take it this was never resolved. But just in case... Today I received a Google invitation to an email address that is linked to my Gmail/Google Calendar account. I clicked "accept" and assumed it would add it to my Google calendar. Nope. I had to click on the attached ics file instead, open it, then it opens in the wrong calendar (not the synced Google calendar) then I have to copy and paste the event in the right calendar, and then of course it emails everyone on the meeting that I'm reminding them about a meeting that I am NOT hosting, am supposed to just be a guest at. 

Any workarounds for a NON-TECH person who doesn't understand what "analogous code" or "content handler for .ics files" even means? I would truly appreciate any help...

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler elitwin 3/30/10 9:42 AM
While this is not the easiest or quickest solution, you can import a .ics file into the calendar.

Just download the .ics attachment from the e-mail (and remember where it is saved).

In Google Calendar, go to "Calendar Settings" (you can get there by clicking "Settings" at the top of the screen and then the "Calendar" tab. You can also get there by clicking "Settings" under "My Calendars", which is on the left side of the screen by default).

Click on "Import calendar" and then browse to the .ics file you previously saved. Select "Import" and voila, the entry is added to the calendar.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Caltd 3/30/10 2:54 PM
The workaround described by "Elitwin" is exactly the procedure I was hoping to automate - it's the process that started me on the hunt for a solution in the first place!

Thanks anyhow...
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler pasekmi 4/12/10 11:27 AM

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler JohnnyLunchBucket 8/30/10 1:42 PM
This is strictly b.s.  The little war between Google and whomever makes it so that, when someone sends me a meeting or convention calendar to download, it is infinitely easier for me to print it out and staple the pages together, fold them up and put them in my pocket.  So much for Google Calendar.  Obviously, they are more interested in playing king of the mountain amongst the geeks that making their product work with Microsoft calendar functions.  What a bunch of jerks.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler willcode4beer 9/10/10 9:04 AM
This page shows how to import ICS files into Google Calendar:


Maybe I'll write a Chrome extension this weekend to handle them a little more automagically.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 9/10/10 9:50 AM
YES PLEASE!!!  The current workaround requires downloading the ICS, opening google calendar, clicking Add->Import Calendar, finding the file, selecting all the right options, and then finding the file again and deleting it.  I want to simply click on an ICS in a webpage or as a mail attachment and have it automatically go straight to the Import Calendar dialog.

Judging from this discussion at least 36 people would be eternally grateful if you could do this!

Google calendar actually already worked for my needs:

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler eastonharvey 9/21/10 11:07 PM
http://www.tripit.com/uhp/calendarInfo#google

Follow these directions and you will have a live feed on your google calendar from your facebook events.

The instructions are a little outdated because google recently revamped their UI. Use the "Add" under the Other Calendars section to add by URL.
Get your custom ical link feed from the bottom of your events page, "Export Events".

Good luck!
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 9/22/10 8:05 AM
@towski and @eastonharvey: You are not addressing the issue.  We do not want to subscribe to an ical feed.  We know how to do that.  We want to click on a link to an .ics file in a webpage, or as an attachment in gmail, and have that single event open in google calendar without having to first download the file and then add it from our hard drive.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler rabrav 9/22/10 1:01 PM
@car2nwallaby
 as I read your comment, I was thinking of how chrome has an extension for RSS feed. 

So, I searched for some possible calendar-extensions in chrome browser. 
I found two interesting plugins:

1.  Add to Google Calendar by ChristieEnglish

2.  Notify Me by sebastian.brillout

- dunno if they work flawlessly though  :-)
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 9/22/10 5:58 PM
Thanks for the suggestions @rabrav.  "Add to Google Calendar" is exactly what I'm looking for, but unfortunately I tried it with a .ics attachment in gmail and it didn't work and on a website, and it didn't work for either.  The ics file still tried to download.  "Notify Me" doesn't seem to be related to ics files.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler m.reischer 4/3/11 4:53 AM
Still looking for a way to click on an .ics (icalendar appointment) in a gmail message and add it to a google calendar without downloading it first...
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler BunchOfMalarkey 4/13/11 5:55 AM
After receiving an appointment confirmation email today, I was trying to figure out how to do what you all are talking about. I could click a link in the email to download an .ics, but as it has been said, there is no way to import that into Google calendar.

So, with the appointment open in my Gmail, I went to the More Actions button on the right side of the toolbar and chose 'Create Event' from the drop down. It then opened up a new event that was auto-populated with the info from my email. That is exactly what I needed, so hopefully that helps someone.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler sandra.dickenson 5/8/11 8:52 AM
I can't import the ics files under my Google Calendar setting/import file. Its a non valid file. The Create Event from the fowarded email did not auto populate with the email information so I had to add it. Would have been just as easy to create it from scratch. Google has us hooked and I don't think they are out to improve things, just keep us hoping.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler woodelf 6/4/11 5:33 PM

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Pshem 6/29/11 3:47 AM
This feature would be so welcome. Tried gcalicsimporter , but it does not work (at least for me - and yes, I've edited config files) .
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler andrew_laser 7/18/11 3:04 AM
+1 vote for this feature at least for Chrome.
Our company has recently switched to GoogleApps and this issue makes many employees feel pretty uncomfortable with GoogleApps.
People just want to click a link to an .ics file in a webpage, or as an attachment in gmail, and have that single event open in google calendar without having to first download the file and then add it from our hard drive.

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler merforex 7/19/11 3:36 AM
I stumbled across this thread when trying to add an event to my personal calendar from my travel booking site that was sent as an ics file. It will populate my outlook calendar for work so I just sync the two. I thought others might stumble across this with the same need.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 7/19/11 7:40 AM
So in other words, if you want to easily open ics files with a calendar application, you have to use Outlook.  Still.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler merforex 7/19/11 8:28 AM
The easiest way I have been able to find, yes. Kind of like asking Word to open a PDF. I'm sure it could be done but it's probably easier to stick with the program designed to work with it. I tried importing it directly using the "add" function but it wouldn't accept the ics file. Outside of writing code and editing config files just use the sync. I haven't tried but it may work with Express too.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler HMVDM 9/5/11 4:18 AM
This worked for me :) 

To import events from iCalendar or CSV files, just follow these steps:

  1. Click the down-arrow next to Other calendars
  2. Select Import calendar
  3. Click Choose file and find the file that contains your events, then click Open.
  4. Select the Google Calendar where you'd like to import events, then click Import.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 9/5/11 10:37 AM
@HMVDM: The question was:

"Is there a way to set Google Calendar to be the default webapp to handle .ICS files so that I can open them directly with Google Calendar rather than having to download them first?"

Your workflow requires downloading the file first.  Long inconvenient process.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Popsui 9/14/11 11:56 AM
Simple: In Google Calendars, locate the "Add" drop down at the lower left of the nav bar.  Select Import and follow the instructions to upload the .ICS to the calendar of your choice. See this article for a full breakdown with screenshots: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/30834/add-an-ical-or-.ics-calendar-to-google-calendar/


Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Pshem 9/15/11 1:22 AM
erm.... but this still does not answer the question. Ok, most of us know that you can download ics file and then open google calendar and upload ics event by clicking add the menu. But is there a way to set it up in a way that you won't have to actually open google calendar, but you could simply double click ics file (in other words - make google calendar default ics handler).
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler davea0511b 11/16/11 2:50 PM
Gee whiz it's easier to type in a new appt than it is to download it, find the darn thing on your drive, then import, then delete the ics file off your drive.  That's a solution?  Man, you guys should work for google.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler mcromney 12/14/11 10:01 AM
BunchofMarlarky has the simplest answer - if the .ICS file is an attachment in gmail, simply click More-Add Event-Save and you're done.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler car2nwallaby 12/17/11 5:00 PM
Ok, so what about .ICS files on a website?
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler jjllmmss 1/5/12 12:41 AM
I would say all the folks suggesting to download the ICS file need to take a reading comprehension course....

What should happen is this:

-  User finds ICS file somewhere.
- User clicks on file or link to download it.
- The browser is programmed in a way that it invokes Google Calendar and adds the information in the ICS file.

It should be all automatic.

Capicce?
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler uche.ogbuji 1/6/12 9:30 AM
Just adding my vote that it's ridiculous that Google will not even acknowledge this huge feature gap. Even if my small company moves to Google Apps, as we're considering, this is a major blocker for using the Calendar portion.

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Daryle Tilroe 2/15/12 10:09 AM
Heck I'd be happy the often flaky "Create event" option on the 'More' message dropdown worked here.  Why in the world it can't work properly when there is a perfectly cromulent ics file attached (and recognized with a nice calendar icon!) is beyond me.  When I try it, Google just throws the following error:


Google

414. That’s an error.

The requested URL /ServiceLogin... is too large to process. That’s all we know.


Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Sheryaar Butt 2/16/12 7:36 AM
I have to say, this thread is hilarious.
But also, I am just as frustrated by this inconvenience. Our entire organization uses web applications that generate these ICS urls. Because we are switching from outlook, everyone is already used to only having to click the link and having their calendars update automatically. Having to teach everyone this roundabout method is a workflow problem that introduces frustration and more opportunities for errors.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler bickerdyke 2/16/12 10:49 AM
Try to specify a timezone or leave out the BEGIN:End:Timezone tags.

I did a php script that creates a calendar that can be consumend by GCal once and had similar problems first. I downloaded one of my calendars first and took that one as a template.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler bickerdyke 2/16/12 10:53 AM
You're right with the workflow disturbance. But still: GCal can't be sat as an application as it IS NO APPLICATION. It's a website.

You need at least a stub application on your PC that takes over the file from the browser and redirects it to the google webpage, or you need a browser that can handle this redirection. I think someone listed such browser plugins above.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Sheryaar Butt 2/16/12 11:13 AM
Thanks for the reply - I do understand the dilemma. However, what has been asked for is for Google to provide an application that will do this for us. From a security standpoint, I would feel more comfortable being able to do this internally through Google rather than editing third party config files. Having a place to call for support if it doesn't work correctly would be nice as well.

A plug-in is effective only if the end user has the flexibility of switching out of IE - something which isn't always possible (I know it isn't with our company).

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler bickerdyke 2/16/12 1:32 PM
Why does google have to do everything?

Google is already doing more: Google calendar has an open, well-documented interface. Anyone can use that to write great tools for their needs.Some of those are mentioned frequently here in the forum. Google activly encourages the development of tools like the one you're proposing.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Sheryaar Butt 2/16/12 1:57 PM
They don't have to do anything, and my intent wasn't to sound entitled or demanding. This thread is just tracking the need for an enhancement. The more activity it gets, the more sets of eyes get to see a common problem and perhaps offer up a solution. I just want to add my voice to the pool so it may show up on someones radar.

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler bickerdyke 2/16/12 2:04 PM
That's the spirit.

And as I already wrote today in another thread: Get some local CS student and offer him pizza and beer for a weekend. Should be a small enough project to be feasible for that price. :-)

What solution are you refering to?

And what's not working as intended?
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Thomas KM 4/17/12 8:02 AM
The whole business with "Navigate to the .ics file you want to import and select the calendar you want to import the event to" that get's tedious in a hurry.

My workaround has become using my iPhone to manage ICS attachments - this adds them to the right calendar - which in turn synch back to my computer.

The drawback is that changes get f-d up - if someone reschedules events, that sometimes doesn't move anything - or it just keeps adding calendar entries, which can crash the iPhone when 4 or 5 event alerts kick in at the same time.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler jorijnsmit 4/19/12 7:38 AM
There is an extension available at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ejpogldabjhjhglnfojmnekmcjonllia

Description
Allows events in iCal (*.ics) files to be easily added to Google Calendar.
This extension detects links to outlook / iCal / (*.ics) events and gives you a popup bubble to add the event directly to Google Calendar.

Works for me!

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler aboydston 10/26/12 9:13 AM
Seems like a basic feature for, you know, a calendar.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler bickerdyke 10/26/12 9:17 AM
It's NOT a basic feature for a website, to automatically access any file on your PC or on some other website you're visiting. Browsers try hard to PREVENT that!

It would be a no-brain feature for a local app. And is technically impossible without help from a local app (or browser)
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler aboydston 10/26/12 9:30 AM
From the user's perspective, there isn't a difference and Google Calendar is a website that is, intentionally, designed and used like an application. Plus, integrating web based applications with local functionality is pretty normal these days.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler aboydston 10/26/12 9:32 AM
...and Google is already doing it with Drive, Google Notifer, ?Offline Mail?.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler bickerdyke 10/26/12 9:55 AM
Drive and Notifier is software installed on your PC, well outside the browser.

And offline mail uses internal browser storage. (That ends up on your harddrive somewhere, of course, but Offline Mail can't control where or anything outside that little browser storage, or anything in the browser storage of other websites. That's HTML5)

You're right, it could be a feature of those local tools like Notifier and stuff. Even perhaps Chrome. But you're wrong if you think you can do it without local help. Name a single web app that can handle double-clicking a local file without local help.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler apstub 11/2/12 4:06 AM
instead of browsing to the file (which requires you to navigate to the right location), you can also just drag and drop the ics file in the above-mentioned Import.. on the "Choose File" button. This saves time.
Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Doug Baumwall 12/17/12 9:37 AM

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Bleikur 2/10/13 4:37 AM
Log on to Google Calendar and paste the following code into the omnibox to make Google Calendar the default handler for ics/ical:

javascript:navigator.registerProtocolHandler("webcal","https://www.google.com/c‌​alendar/render?cid=%s","Google Calendar");

To see if it worked go to Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Privacy -> Content Settings -> Handlers -> Manage Handlers, and there it should be listed.

This on the other hand does not open an .ics if I receive it as an email attachment, probably because the download link within the email does not contain .ics within its path.

Re: Set Google Calendar to be .ICS content handler Kris Benson 2/15/13 10:51 AM
Didn't work for me -- in fact, the only thing in "Manage Handlers" was "mailto".
