Understanding Linked Calendars

Mylio can automatically create events from your digital calendars. This is a fast and easy way to populate your Life Calendar™ with all of your most important life events. Mylio can import calendars from your device’s calendar service, including Outlook, Gmail, and iCloud calendars.

  Note:   If Mylio is not prompting macOS for permission to access the calendar in macOS System Preferences please verify that Mylio is installed correctly. If the Mylio app has not been placed in the Applications folder then it can not request access for your calendar. If the issue persists, please contact Mylio Support via the in-app Help menu.
