What is calendar synchronisation via URL

Planday offers a default calendar URL for synchronisation with external calendars. The external calendar must support synchronisation via URL to synchronise your schedule.
For example, not all Android calendars allow direct synchronisation via calendar URLs. If in doubt, find out in the support area of your provider whether this is possible.
