Add Birthdays and Events From Facebook

PrintableCal can import birthdays and events from Facebook when generating calendars in Excel and Word. To add Facebook birthdays and events, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Add Calendar button on the Calendar Data Sources step and select the Facebook option. The Add Calendar Source - Facebook window will appear.
  2. Open http://www.facebook.com/events/calendar.
  3. Click the gear button to the right of the Today button.
  4. Click the Export command in the drop-down menu.
  5. Facebook provides two calendar sources - one for your friend's birthdays and one for all other events. Right-click the link for the desired calendar and copy its URL by clicking the Copy link address command on the popup menu. Depending on your web browser, this command might be named Copy shortcut or Copy Link Location.
  6. After copying the link, the address field at the top of the Add Calendar Source - Facebook window should be automatically filled. If that doesn't happen, right-click the address field and select Paste from the popup menu, or press Ctrl+V.‚Äč
  7. The OK button will now be enabled. Click the OK button to add your Facebook calendar to PrintableCal's list of available calendar sources. Note: Facebook calendars will not include events that occur in the past.
