Thanks, Jedidiah Rex, for this tutorial! Have other tutorials you’d like to see? (Cooking ideas from Bon Appetit, budget processes for clubs, etc.) Email the Terrarium at terrarium@beloit.edu.

To add the Master Calendar to your Google Calendar:

    1. From Terrarium homepage, click the Full event calendar link.

    Next, select Copy link Location (or address) from the context menu. Then open your Google Calendar.

    Click the drop-down arrow to the right of "Other calendars" and select Add by URL from the list.

    Paste in the link you copied.

    You should see a calendar titled "The Terrarium" in your list of other calendars.

Optional:

You can customize the name of this calendar (and others) to show up in the order you want. The titles in the Other calendars list follow the following order: special characters "!" to ")"; numbers 1-9, and then A-Z; i.e. "!BC Master" would appear at the top of the list. 

To customize a title:

  1. Click the drop-down arrow to the right of the calendar title you want to change.
  2. Select Calendar settings from the list of options.
  3. Edit the text in the "Calendar name" field.
  4. Save changes.
