Using Cozi with Other Calendars

Cozi can be used with other popular calendar programs, such as Google Calendar, Outlook, and Apple Calendar. This page shows you how to set up a read-only feed of appointments to or from Cozi. Here’s how each option works:

From another calendar to Cozi

Google-cal apple-cal   Outlook arrow cozi-logo

Share appointments from other calendars to Cozi in a read-only format. This feature enables you subscribe to other calendars in Cozi, including school calendars, work calendars, sport team schedules and more. Any time the external calendar is updated, the changes will automatically be reflected in Cozi when you next access your Cozi calendar. Note: Cozi checks for changes to iCal feeds about once an hour.

From Cozi to another calendar

Cozi-to Google-cal apple-cal  Outlook

Share appointments from Cozi to another calendar program (or to another Cozi account) in a read-only format. This is a great tool for family members who need a read-only view of someone’s schedule, or for sharing Cozi data to other calendars your family members might use. Any updates made in Cozi will be updated automatically in the receiving calendar when that calendar next checks for changes to incoming calendar data.


Google Calendar

Cozi works with Google Calendar. To integrate your Google Calendar with Cozi, follow these instructions.

How to import Google Calendar events into Cozi (one-time)

Here’s how to copy the appointments on your Google Calendar appointments over to Cozi. This feature is a great way to move an entire calendar to Cozi in order to manage the appointments in Cozi going forward. Unlike the iCal feed subscription described above, these appointments will be editable in Cozi, but the changes you make in Cozi won’t be reflected in your Google calendar (and vice versa). 

Ready to Import? 

  • On your Android device: Go to Settings > Google calendars and follow the prompts. (You can import a Google calendar from Android devices that use the Cozi app from Google Play.)
  • From your Cozi account on the web: Go to your calendar and then click Set up > Import from Google. Or click here to go to Google Import now.
  • This feature is currently not available on iOS devices, but anyone can import using Cozi on the web.
