Did you know that you can add the Census Bureau release schedule to your Outlook Calendar?
And select Under “NEWS” …. “Release Schedule”
Under the Month/Year in the center of the top of the page … there is “Subscribe: iCal / RSS …. I had initially thought that this was it … and that it would add it to my outlook calendar and update automatically … BUT it does NOT work like that …
So instead you can go to “Export” in the gray bar at the top of the page …. Select your date range, the type of items you would like to export, and the format. I selected “iCalendar Interchange Format (.ics)” and then told it to OPEN.
A new calendar is added to your outlook calendar section.
The downside – This DOES NOT update automatically, so monthly or periodically you may want to delete the calendar and re-import (Export Calendar Events) to get a refreshed version of the releases, etc.
