While the calendar feed is updated every 15 minutes, certain calendar programs (most notably Google Calendar) may take up to several hours to reflect the changes in this feed.

  5. Paste the URL you copied earlier into the box by right clicking in the box and selecting “Paste”.
  6. Click the “Add to Calendar” button.
