Adding A Facebook Event To Your Outlook Calendar

Adding A Facebook Event To Your Outlook Calendar

Have you ever confirmed yourself for an event posted on Facebook but forgot to to attend or add it to your calendar? There is actually a real easy way to add any Facebook Event to your Outlook Calendar. In the video I explain how it is done with Outlook. But you can also download the information for the event and then import it into Google Calendar.

When you are looking at your Facebook Profile page there are 2 ways you can view events. One is on the left-hand menu from the Events link and the right-hand side of the page you should see the Birthdays of your friends and and how many events you have in the current week.

Click on the link on the left-hand side to see all your upcoming events and birthdays. If there is a number next to the link it means you have new events you can join. You can “Join” or “Decline” to the right the event information or clicking the event title will give you more information on that event. If you scroll to the bottom of your events list page you’ll see links to view past events, declined events, birthdays and a link to export all events to your calendar. You can export all events if you want.

However I recommend you only export the events you plan to attend. Lets scroll back up to the top of your events page and look at an event. You have to “Join” an event or be a “Maybe” in order to “Export Event” to your calendar. Once you do that the button will change to “Going” and allow you to change it to maybe or not going. Notice the button to the left of the “Going” button below. Here is where you can “Share Event” with your other friends or “Export Event” to your calendar. Pick “Export Event” to start the export process to your Outlook Calendar.

It should only take a few moments for the .ics file to download to your PC. If you click on the file it will launch Outlook so you can save the event. You can also save this file to your PC and then import it into your calendar. Most calendars will have information on how to do that.

Notice how the information from the Facebook event is carried over to Outlook. Here is where you can make any need changes, add a reminder, set a category and then save the event to your calendar. It is pretty easy to do after you understand the process and you will never miss an important event with your social media friends.
