Share appointments from Cozi to another calendar program (or to another Cozi account) in a read-only format. It’s 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.

With calendar feeds share from Cozi, any updates made in Cozi will be updated automatically in the receiving calendar when that calendar next checks for changes to incoming calendar data.
