Adding the appointments to Google Calendar and iPhone/ iPad Calendars

Through the iCal link available for each calendar in the list of appointment calendars you can easily have automatically exported the appointments/bookings to your Google Calendar, iPhone Calendar, iPad calendar, Outlook calendar or other third party calendars.

The first step to get the plugin bookings exported to a third party calendar is to enable the iCal Export add-on and then get the iCal link. The iCal link is available in the step 6 of the calendar settings (add-ons).

An easy way to copy the link is to right-click it and copy the URL. Right click the "iCal" link on the calendar list and click "Copy Link Address" or "Copy Link Location" (depending of the browser you are using).

The following image shows the exact location of the iCal link:
