Carousel Cloud gives you the ability to dynamically integrate calendar information from Google Calendar to show events on your signage displays and express players. The integration is simple to set up and will continue to sync with your calendar for as long as the bulletin is scheduled.
Finding your Google Calendar iCal Address
To find your iCal URL, start by logging into your Google Calendar Account in a web browser. Click on the dots next to the calendar you would like to display in Carousel.
Then select Settings and Sharing.
Then select Integrate Calendar from the column on the left and copy either the Public Address or the Secret Address to your clipboard. This is the URL you will use in Carousel to sync events in Carousel.
Using your google Calendar iCal Address in Carousel
Log into Carousel and navigate to the Zone in which you would like to display Calendar information. Select New Bulletin, then select Dynamic as the bulletin category.
From there, you have three bulletin types you can use to display events.
Events Grouped by Room
Events Grouped by Time
Your iCal Address will work as a data source for any of those bulletin types, simply select the one you wish to use to create your bulletin.
Using the drop down menu, set iCal as your Schedule Source and paste the iCal Address into the iCal Feed URL field.
Then simply adjust any other desired settings, publish your bulletin, and watch the events come and go!
