Google Calender

Google Calendars are easy to maintain once you get them configured on your Team Page! Any updates that you make on your Calendar in Google will automatically update on your Team Page. Currently, you can only embed/sync a Google Calendar on your team page. We do not accept iCal.

*Note: In order for the Calendar tab tab to display in your team’s page, you must insert the Google Calendar Embed Code on the Team Settings page.

*Any volunteer allocated to a team can edit that team's page.

Steps to Embed a Google Calendar:

  1. Go to Team Central >> Team Directory >> Team Home >> Team Settings.
  2. Open up a new window and go to your Calendar in your Gmail account.
  3. Click the downward facing arrow to right of the Calendar name and then click Calendar settings.

  4. Once you're on the Schedule Details, click the Share this Calendar tab.

  5. Put a check mark in the Make this calendar public box. *Note: This is necessary for other people to be able to view your calendar.

  6. Click Save.

  7.  Click the Calendar Details tab to the left of Share this Calendar.

  8. Scroll down to the Embed This Calendar section and copy the iframe code.

  9. Flip back over to your Blue Sombrero site. Paste the iframe code in the Google Calendar "Embed This Calendar" text box on the Team Settings page.

  10. Click Update at the bottom of the page.
  11. Click on your Team Name at the top of the page. Then click on the Calendar tab to view your new calendar.

    *Note: You may have to clear your cache by holding down CTRL+F5 on your keyboard to view the calendar.


  12. Below is an example of what your calendar will look like.
