I'm creating a iCal subscription calendar which is all working as expected; except I can't seem to specify seemingly basic things such as a default name to suggest to the client for the calendar, a description, and how often it should refresh.
I did find this specification revision: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-daboo-icalendar-extensions-06
It does suggest that I can simply pass in the fields I want. Having done this and with the top of the ics file looking like this:
BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:-//My Company//NONSGML Event Calendar//EN URL:http://my.calendar/url NAME:My Calendar Name DESCRIPTION:A description of my calendar TIMEZONE-ID:Europe/London REFRESH-INTERVAL;VALUE=DURATION:P1D COLOR:34:50:105 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN METHOD:PUBLISH
I'm simply finding that whilst no device/app that I've tried rejects the calendar, they are all ignoring the properties. I've used Outlook 2010, an iPhone on iOS 6, and Google Calendar. Outlook claims to respect some sort of refresh interval in the file, but when I subscribe my calendar – it says it's unspecified.
So the question is are these properties supported, or do I need to specify them as something else for each different client, or am I just plain out of luck?
