Discord Events needs Google Calendar integration
The new Discord server events feature is great, but it would be perfect if every event that I've created or tapped "Interested" on would automatically appear in my Google Calendar. This would make organization so much easier. All Discord would need to do is create an .ics file that we can import into our calendar applications.
Great Idea! Maybe Discord could even add a way to add another connection where it links your google account that you use for discord. So things like google docs, forms, and calendars can be integrated into events. It would prove very useful!2
Discord has added the feature to add specific events to calendars, even adding .ics downloads, but these require manual input per event.
There is no automatically updating .ics file we can subscribe to on our devices, unfortunately.1
Thank you. Love this added feature and I am using Librewolf web browser. So I would imagine that's why I can't add events to my own calendar.
Side note to their question which reflects the topic. Could we link our servers to a specific email's calender instead of our accounts.
For example I have set up a anonymous email box and account to read all concerns to the server that disconnects my person account for community inquires. The idea with this is it removed the need to run a in discord mail box and I had a bot that was a calendar focused that I could branch into this account to have a ICS calendar that could be sync to anyone's account.
Down falls of that bot, super irritating to set up events. Discord's interface is beautiful. Just want to see more functionality to community driven uses. This also is nice because a company could effectively remove the need for zoom.0
Hey there! I couldn't agree more. I wanted this automated for the longest time now so thought to let you know there is a bot that does automate this by allowing 2-way events sync (discord→google→discord).
Here is a helpful blog post on AtomCal's website that explains how to use their Discord bot to integrate Google Calendar with Discord, allowing for easy scheduling and event management.
