How do I add a webcal calendar? Edited

With the latest Confluence redesign, I cannot figure out how to add a calendar to a page now. I have the webcal URL and want it rendered in the page. It doesn't seem to be available under any macros, and I don't see any options to even add it as a team calendar to try to link it that way.

Hi Marc,

I understand you would like to subscribe by URL to a calendar in Confluence Cloud, since that version was recently redesigned. If you are referring to a Confluence server instance that was recently upgraded, please let me know the upgraded and pre-upgrade versions.

If you are not seeing the Team Calendar option on the + menu when you edit a page, please verify that Team Calendars is enabled on your instance. The option is there on my Confluence Cloud test instance so I don't think it was removed as part of the new Confluence Cloud UI.

I look forward to hearing whether the option is available on your instance and if it isn't, whether Team Calendars is installed and enabled.

Thanks,

Ann

Well it looks like it must not be enabled, though I don't know why it would have been disabled. It disappeared the same day the UI updated, reportedly. I'll send a message to one of the admins to take a look. Thanks!

Sounds good. They just need to go to Settings>Manage Add-ons or https://Your_Instance.atlassian.net/wiki/plugins/servlet/upm

I hope you will circle back to the forum to let us know how it goes.

It was purposefully turned off, as it turns out. When the update occurred, more resource-intensive operations became more apparent, which included the calendar integration.
