Connect to Apple Calendar
I was pretty excited to start using Amplenote when I saw the calendar function and particularly the option to drag and drop tasks into the spaces between existing commitments - I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. However, all of my events are in iCal. I’d love to be able to connect those calendars, not just Google or Outlook.
[Feature update]: There is a pathway to sync Apple Calendar to Amplenote now posted in the comments and our Help Page, but it requires setting up an intermediate account
"Apple calendar integration" (suggested by Michael Iversen on 2021-04-18), including upvotes (12) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.

the lacking intergation into Icloud/Mac OSX is the main reason not to use Amplenotes
I am currently using Sorted 3 and Apple Calendar together for my Task Management, while using Apple Notes on the go and Roam Research afterward.
I would have subscribed straight away if there was an iCal sync.
I will definitely keep an eye on this and hope for the feature to come.
Take a look at Sorted 3, the app UX is on point, and the widgets are dope.
no ical = not viable. I can't bear google cal and I don't run outlook. Otherwise looks good
Hope to see Apple calender integration in a future update
We recently discovered it is possible to sync to Apple Calendar, though you do have to jump through the hoop of Google. If you like Amplenote enough to put up with registering a free Google Calendar, it seems that sync is at least possible: https://www.amplenote.com/help/link_apple_calendar_to_amplenote We acknowledge this ain't the optimal long-term solution, but it's there for those who can use it as a stopgap until our official implementation gets scheduled.
+1 Really hope this gets prioritized. This is my one reason for not using this app and I’ve tried everything. I wonder if this https://www.nylas.com would help?
I bought de app today, after I was looking last days for a good app to organize notes, work and other stuff… Now I see that there is no option to sync with iCloud calendar… Very bad. The solution to go via google calender -no, thank you. What to do? Dismiss my Abo and delete the app or will there be a direct solution with iCloud oder webdav…?
I have gone completely Apple to get away from Google and anything Microsoft and I am loving it. Lack of Apple calendar/iCloud integration is extremely disappointing. Going to cancel my trial and may come back if/when this is sorted.
Such a pity, I want to use Amplenote but even the sync with Google Calendar is proving problematic. There isn't enough time in life to force things to work... there's no point using the product until this gets resolved.
I'm new to Amplenote and still working through my trial. This is such a great product, but this is the one reason I am not sticking with it. It must integrate with Apple Calendar and Reminders (another customer submitted feature request).
Completely agree with the comments above. This is a no brainer for people living in the apple ecosystem. I wonder how large of a user base that is.

coming back from time to time to check if Apple is integrated. Still not. therefore: no Amplenote
Please please please!
After signing up, realized that I cannot sync to my corporate Outlook 365 account due to policy. I need an icloud sync. Going through Google is a show stopper for me.

I was excited about Amplenote but not a fan of goggle calendar. Once Apple calendar is available I can see Amplenote combining what I do through multiple apps.
This is critical otherwise this feature is useless for me, and given that this task calendar feature is a key reason to use Amplenote means there is no real reason to use it as other apps I already using do similar things. Please please please do this asap!!
Could you say if this is likely to be added? Amplenote looks interesting but I’m not ever going to use google calendar.
@Ruth, very likely to be added!
Would for sure make the jump to Amplenotes if this feature is added...any idea on a timeframe?
This hopefully brings caldav
I just want to return to say I am really really hoping for this feature. It's such a bummer to me when beautiful products basically limit themselves to be plug-ins for Google products. (I know that's not quite fair, but that's what it feels like sometimes)
Please prioritize this and then take my money!!
I have no idea the technical challenge of adding iCloud (or even caldav) support, but maybe at the very least as a stopgap Amplenote could generate a .ics feed that we could subscribe to in our calendar client, where each scheduled task is an event of the appropriate length with a link the URL to that task in the Amplenote app
Thank you 🙏
Am I correct in undestanding this suggestion would be to implement the iCal specification?
I think apple just uses the ical specification which is used by other vendors (proton calendar and todist provide iCal links for example).
May want to rename this suggestion.
I cannot understand why an app that runs native on IOS and MAC OS does not sync with Apple’s calendar. It seems like it would be going out of one’s way to avoid Ical.
It seems that your app is over two years old, but yet it does not use Apple calendar. Yet you solicit apple customers. I have to consider that as either cynicism or disrespect for your Apple based consumers. I am gravely disappointed.
Sorry to hear about this, Clyde. Indeed, we keep hearing from people that want Apple Calendar integration, so it's definitely something on our radar. The main reason we haven't gotten around to it is because we have a trove of wonderful feature ideas that we're constantly working on, so when prioritizing, some good ideas inevitably get pushed aside for a while.
We'll do this one as soon as we can!
I’d love to use Amplenote but refuse to integrate Google. Do you have an eta for apple calendar integration?
I trialled it and loved it but was amazed that given it runs as a Mac app there’s no Mac integration.
