Adding Events to Your Church App

Displaying events on your custom app is a crucial way to keep your congregants in the know. Fortunately, there is a way to connect a calendar RSS feed (iCal/Google Calendar) and create individual calendar events for your app. Below you will find how you can both connect and manually add events with your Tithely custom app. 

Connecting a Tithely Site Calendar, Breeze Calendar, Google Calendar or iCal Link

Heads up! When using My Events and the iCal link, the dashboard will create two separate tabs. These tabs can be managed to display whichever you prefer. See Managing the Tabs on Your App Dashboard.

To set up a recurring event in your app create a recurring even in Google Calendar and integrate the event into your Tithely App.

Finding the Correct Google Calendar Link for Your App

Sometimes finding the correct Google Calendar link that is compatible with your app dashboard can be tricky. Follow the steps below to find the correct Google Calendar link:

  1. When viewing your iCal/Google Calendar, you’ll see to the left My Calendars. Below it the names of your calendars.
  2. Hover over the calendar you wish to use in your app.
  3. Select the ellipsis, then Settings and Sharing in the dropdown options.
  4. You'll then come to another page - scroll all the way down to the bottom of that page, and you’ll find something that says Public Address in iCal format. Immediately below that there will be a link. This is the iCal/Google Calendar link your app needs.
