ICS Feeds

The Anatomy of a Localist ICS Feed

BEGIN:VEVENT (This indicates the start of an event)

SUMMARY: Event’s Title

LOCATION: Location of the event

DESCRIPTION: A brief description of the event

DTSTART;TZID: Start time

DTEND;TZID: End time

CATEGORIES: Localist Filters

UID: External ID

  • An External ID tells our system that this is event #1, so each time the Feed imports it will match the previously imported event #1. If your events do not have an External ID, Localist will see each event as “new” during every import.
  • The External ID can be anything, like a numerical string or a URL. 

END:VEVENT (This indicates the end of an event)
