In our effort to support local businesses and causes we're excited to introduce a new Event Import functionality.

If you already have a calendar that you like, you can import your events automatically into Locable to distribute through Local Connections to reach more locals and visitors.

When you add your calendar, we'll import existing events and check it daily for updates.

Please note: we require clean event data which means a title, description, start date, start time, and location while supporting additional fields like images etc. If data is missing in the feed imported you'll need to add it manually. You'll be notified via email every time an event is imported and if there is any data missing.

To Import

Importing events is tricky due to the number of calendars and the structure of the data. As such, we will handle the feed configuration for you to ensure events import as expected.

Please send us the URL of your calendar feed to begin the process.

Finding your Feed URL

Chamber Master or Chamber Organizer

The correct feed URL for this type of calendar will include "rss" and link to an XML document.

When in doubt, try yoururl.com/Feed/rss/Events.rss or yoursubdomain.chambermaster.com/Feed/rss/Events.rss
