You need the http address of the calendar rather than the webcal address in order to actually embed it.
I share my icloud calendar with my google account https://calendar.google.com
Which then gives you the option to embed using an iframe.
Ok so I went to that link you gave me, and found an option where I could add the client’s calendar to my own online calendar page, is that right?
I didn’t even know I had one to be honest. Seems a bit weird to add it to my own account though?
It is now showing up which is great, but can you confirm that the process really does mean adding it to your own Google account?
I was thinking more that they could add it to their own Google account and would email you the embed code.
But not every client is tech savvy enough to know where to click and what to do. It might be a bit daunting for them.
Now that you’ve done it yourself and know what to do, you could maybe walk them through it to save having to keep it on your own Google account.
With several of my clients/sites, I setup a Google account on their behalf and keep the details, if they already have one I use something similar to their name or business, I can then use that account for Calendars, PDF display, embedded video, photos etc (the 15Gb of free space comes in handy!)
Richard I’m confused now. Because I think what they’d need to do at their end is a bit different from what I did at my end.
Dave thanks for your input, but I’m assuming that my client already has a google account because he’s using the calendar already.
I’m not sure exactly what I’d be asking him to do.
I think that’s what we already did. Actually looking again, the email from google says that he gave me ‘editing rights’ which gave me a link to the page, which then gave me the code.
Is that different to ‘sharing’ it then?
