Cannot add iCal to Outlook

I keep receiving an error in Outlook 2010 - "Cannot verify or add the calendar to Outlook. Make sure the following link is a valid calendar link: webcals://ext.todoist.com/Export/icalTodoist?........"

When I initially copy the link it is -- "https://ext.todoist.com/Export/icalTodoist?......"

Hello Amanda,

Please try to paste the copied iCal feed to the Notepad so check if it's starts with https:// if it does - paste it like this. If it doesn't, try to replace https:// with webcal:// without the "s" and see if it helps.


Best regards,
David

I am pasting it as is. I just cut it off int he forum. When I paste it, it has https://, but in the in the error it says welcals://.

I don't know how to fix it at that point.

Amanda,

Please try to replace https:// with webcal:// or webcals:// and let me know if either of these work.


Best regards,

I restarted Outlook and tried both again. webcal:// worked this time. I'm unsure why it didn't work before.

Thanks for the help.
