Adding the Public Intranet Calendars to Zimbra

These instructions are for adding the academic/divisional calendar or the Hampshire Public Events calendar that is available on the intranet into your Zimbra account as a separate calendar. If there are other public (one that does not require a login) Intranet calendars you would like to add, please contact the Helpdesk and will send you the appropriate URL.

  • In your Calendar tab in Zimbra, click on 'New Calendar' near the top left. 
  • In the name field, enter something like 'Academic' and choose a color for this calendar. 
  • Check the 'Exclude this calendar when reporting free/busy times' box and the 'Synchronize appointments from remote calendar' box. 
  • A URL box will become visible. Copy and paste one of these URLs into that box: Academic Calendar:  Hampshire Public Events Calendar:
  • Click OK

The calendar will initially take a full minute or two to load, and you will receive a warning that the server is slow to respond. Be patient and do NOT click on the cancel request button. The warning will go away, and you will then have the Intranet calendar you chose available to you to view in Zimbra. You can check and uncheck the calendar when ever you'd like.
