How to set up auto updates for your calendar with iCal syncing

Scoutbook is our one and only calendar for pack and den events. All leaders and parents should only check the Scoutbook calendar for all pack and den meetings and all events. Den leaders, if you make changes to the dates or location of you meetings, please ensure the changes are made in the Scoutbook calendar.

When you link Scoutbook to your personal electronic calendar, all calendar entries will automatically be added and updated in your personal electronic calendar. To do so:
1) login to Scoutbook
2) go to “my calendar
3) find the “subscribe” link for pack and click it – see photo
4) copy the weblink to your clipboard
THEN
1) open your electronic calendar
2) find “add calendar
3) select “from URL”
4) copy and paste the weblink for the pack
5) click “save,” if necessary.

Note: Each den has a unique weblink. You will need to repeat this process for each den calendar you wish to add to your personal electronic calendar.
