Executive Summary: click the link to get the NFL Post-Season Calendar on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. The calendar will work forever– this season, next season, and so on. This article tells you how to do it.
Looking for the entire NFL Calendar? Scott Crevier at Southendzone.com has updated his server with the latest NFL schedule. Follow the instructions in this blog post and you’ll be all set– not just for this year, but forever! Read more about it in my NFL Schedules and Calendars blog post.
Subscribing to one of Southendzone’s calendars is a one-time thing– set it, and forget it, until you need it, and there it is. Personally, I go for the NFL Prime-time Calendar (Monday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, Thursday Night Football), but you may like subscribing to the schedule for a particular team or conference. Southendzone.com has them all. Keep in mind that subscribing is different, and better, than importing. You want to subscribe. If you’re stuck, contact me and I’ll help.
Just in time, here’s the NFL Post-Season Calendar for iPhone and Mac. It has dates, times, teams, and TV channels (and it will update to show the scores, and the schedule for future games). Subscribe to the calendar, set it to refresh daily, and you’re done. Here’s how you do it.
The calendar comes to us courtesy of our friend Scott Crevier at SouthEndzone.com. His site is a treasure-trove of NFL calendars– the complete NFL schedule, just the prime-time games, individual team schedules, and of course this one: the NFL Post-Season Calendar. Click that link and you’re on your way.
If you click that link from a Mac you’ll see a box like this:
Don’t change anything there— that’s the address of the calendar, and it won’t work if you change it. You can make changes in the next box, the one that shows up after you click “Subscribe.”
You can change the name, the color, the refresh frequency (change it to “Every day”), and you can come back and change it again later if you’d like. Hint: where it says “Location” you should choose “iCloud” if you can. That way, when you add the calendar on your Mac, it will show up on your iPhone (and iPad) too.
If instead of using your Mac, you’re subscribing by using your iPhone or iPad, you’ll get this little pop-up when you tap the calendar link:
Tap “Subscribe” and you’ll see another little pop-up.
Tap “View Events” and you’ll see the results. Here’s how it looks on my iPhone (with all of my other appointments hidden):
Note, however, that adding the calendar to your iPhone will not automatically add the calendar to your Mac. And, it’s harder to get rid of a calendar when you add it this way, so add it from your Mac if you can. (Hint for Deleting Subscribed Calendars from an iPhone: Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendars/Subscribed Calendars, tap the calendar, tap Delete Account).
You may have guessed this, but just in case: the calendar will update itself next year too! Subscribe once and never have to deal with it again. Awesome.
Special Note to my friend Tom N: you can find the Green Bay Packers schedule at SouthEndzone.com— subscribe to it once and you’re all set, forever. That goes for the rest of you too. Oh, and of course the calendars are hip to your time zone– game times are shown in your time zone, no matter where you are. Nice work, Scott.
As always, if you’re stuck, contact me and I’ll help you out. It’s good to know how to subscribe to calendars, so learn how now and be able to do it with other calendars later (sports teams schedules, phases of the moon, movie releases, and so on).
