  5. Select "Subscribe" and then "Add"

Step #2 - Open Recitation and navigate to your backpack

In the top right corner of Recitation on your home page is a backpack. This is where you can keep track of all your classes, settings, and more. Open your backpack by tapping on the backpack icon.

Step #3 - Calendar Import Access

Tap on the tab titled "Calendar Import" and click "Allow access to calendar" and "Allow full access." This gives Recitation access to your calendars.

Step #4 - Select Calendars

Now select the calendars you would like to be displayed on Recitation.

Step #5 - Navigating your Calendars

Once you have imported your calendars, they will appear on Recitation (note: if they don't appear instantly, navigate to a few different days and see if they load in, it can take up to a minute to see all your events). You can tap on a calendar event to mark it as complete, or press the arrow to convert the calendar event to a Recitation task. Press and hold a calendar event to hide it or open it in your calendar. Hold the day to hide and unhide calendar events. In the week view, tap the calendar icon in the top right to switch between calendar and task views.
