One of the benefits of PlanITPDQ is that it is a calendar-based application. You can add Projects to your PlanIT and pin them to a specific day. But what about marketing teams that use an additional shared calendar for events and activities? Now you can import that entire digital calendar to your PlanIT.

As a matter of fact, you can import any .ics file to your PlanIT. Here’s my favorite: the National Day Calendar of special “days” – you know, the holidays such as Black Cat Day, Apple Cider Day, and Mason Jar Day. These provide great inspiration for super fun blog posts and social media content – as long as you know they’re coming!

Here’s how to add this great resource to your PlanIT:

  • Open your PlanIT and select Edit PlanIT

add calendar

  • Scroll down to the Channels section and click on the green ADD button

  • Enter in the name of the Channel and the URL of the .ics file, and click the blue Update PlanIT button

Voila! Your PlanIT now has a channel for special days. If you want to add one to your calendar as a Project, simply click on it and select the + sign to add it to your PlanIT. Select the pencil to edit the Project, add a Link, or assign it to one of your collaborators


Remember, you can create as many Calendar Channels as you want using any .ics file. Have fun with this great tool.
