Google says every few hours, which in my experience means 6-24. Currently, calendar feeds are automatically updated by Google Calendar every few hours. We understand that some users want to have the ability to refresh the calendars they added manually and we are exploring various ways to enable this. If the calendar you're subscribing to using ...

Google takes a surprising long time to refresh the other calendars... usually "6-24 hours" which, in my experience, is almost enough to make their iCal support nearly worthless. See this related question.

According to the official directions on how to add it to Google Calendar, it shows a calendar URL in a format that is different than the one you supplied: http://www.tripit.com/calendar/ical/... Your URL has feed and private in it. It might be due to privacy concerns and only your public events can be displayed. You could try seeing if there are other iCal ...

The official source is https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/37100?hl=en&ref_topic=1672445 Note: It may take up to 8 hours for changes in ICS feeds to reflect in your Google Calendar.

I have noticed it may now take several days before changes are reflected. It looks like Google upped the time on their Calendar Help page from "every few hours" to "up to 8 hours" and now to "up to 12 hours." Note: It might take up to 12 hours for changes to show in your Google Calendar. Source: Add someone else's Google calendar: Add using a Link

you can achieve this by leveraging the RRULE of the RFC5545. To get the desired results, you need to define the fact that you get paid once a month FREQ=MONTHLY then defining the days of which you can get paid (monday, tuesday, ..., friday) using the property BYDAY=MO,TU,WE,TH,FR and then specifying that you only get paid on the third last one BYSETPOS=-3 ...

There isn't a way to get this via Facebook natively. Even playing with the AJAX calls which pull up the iCal event will result in an error if switching via personal profile to page.

There is no way built-in the RFC standards, the best proof being that there is a draft to extend RFC5545 here. 5.6. REFRESH-INTERVAL Property Property Name: REFRESH-INTERVAL [...] But as this is only a draft it is most likely not supported by any webcalendar. Another x-prop was defined and is used by Microsof (and possibly others): ...

While not having tested against mainstream or others web calendars, the RFC specifies integers to be either positive or negative and RFC5545 section 3.3.8. Integer specifies: The valid range for "integer" is -2147483648 to 2147483647. If the sign is not specified, then the value is assumed to be positive.

You need to publish the ics as an iCal feed that they can paste as a URL to import an external calendar Tripit, for example: webcal://www.tripit.com/feed/ical/private/private-hash/tripit.ics So you need to come up with some kind of hash and publish the ics at a particular url for the user. It is not completely secure as far as I can tell, but that way ...

I think I see the issue and it's due to the fact that Google Calendar appears to update its ical sources only every 24 hours. There have been requests to either update it a bit more frequently or provide users with a manual refresh option - see link below: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/calendar/iXp8fZfgU2E My workaround is as follows, if ...

I just performed the same export of Facebook events that you described above and did not encounter this problem. The events show up on the proper day and time. I believe the difference was that you manually exported the iCal from Facebook and imported into Google Calendar. However, when I opened it in Facebook, Google Calendar automatically handled the ...

While it's not possible to disable the Google Calendar portion of your Google account altogether, it's easy to remove it from OS X. Go to the Mail, Contacts, and Calendars preference pane in System Preferences: Then deselect Calendars from your Google account: Voilá! No more Google Calendar in iCal. Similarly, on iOS: Updated answer: To stop ...

I had a similar problem for a long time and this question had the answer. Remove the "www." from the calendar feed URL. Change https://www.tripit.com/feed/ical/private/XXX...XXX/tripit.ics into https://tripit.com/feed/ical/private/XXX...XXX/tripit.ics

Google Calendar provides an RSS feed for every Calendar. It will be able to run in Twitterfeed. I have a Twitter account running that does just that.

If you have access to a PHP web server and cron jobs, you could try and install iCal-to-Twitter
