Forum Question: What Is the Current Procedure for Publishing iCalenders?

I recently migrated from PC to Mac. After setting up an iCalender identifying company paid holidays and other events, I attempted to publish it, without success. With the departure of MobileMe do I place it in iCloud, Dropbox, use the Bump APP, … ? Any assistance with this would be appreciated.

    What is you goal in publishing? Are you trying to put the calendar in a place where others can subscribe to it? Or something else?
    If you want to publish a calendar to a web server (WebDAV) you must create a calendar “on my Mac” — you can’t do it with an iCloud calendar as that is already on a server.
    Create an “on my Mac” calendar, then you get the Share, Publish option. Is that what you are looking for?

    I created the map on my iMac at home to track paydays, holidays, and other days that have been “blacked out” (days we can’t take off because of how busy they are.

    I can’t download it on a server at work, but a lot of co-workers with iPhones would like to subscribe to the calendar. Is it possible?

      Did you create the calendar as an iCloud calendar or an “On My Mac” calendar? Do it as an “On My Mac” and you can then upload it to a WebDAV server — if that is what you have.

        It was created “On My Mac.” Since it can’t be uploaded to the server at work, can you recommend a WebDAV server that it could be uploaded to? Thanks.

          I don’t have any recommendations there. I guess you would have to pick a host that offers WebDAV and pay for regular hosting services.
          You could always use a different calendar service altogether. Like maybe set up a free Google calendar with a free Gmail account. Then you can share that calendar. You can edit it in iCal on your Mac, and people could subscribe to it. See http://support.google.com/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=151674 for more info. Maybe that will work for you?
