Calendar link to open Fantastical, or other app

Hi. When I click a link in Agenda to a date, it opens Apple’s Calendar app. Is there a way to get it to open another App, both in Mac and iOS? Thanks - Nigel

On Mac you can change the default calendar app in the preferences of the Calendar.app, Agenda should honour this setting. On iOS there currently isn’t as Apple doesn’t allow you to set a 3rd party app as the default calendar app.

Couldn’t you use the Fantastical URL fantastical2:// to accomplish this?

No because we can’t ask the system what your default application is. In theory we could ask the system whether an app is present that handles the fantastical2:// url and then call it, but I’m hesitant to do so as a) the user might have fantastical installed but is not really using it and prefers the calendar app or b) there might be other apps on the system that support this url scheme without being Fantastical itself.

Although I haven’t run into this scenario, that makes sense. Maybe you could allow for custom calendar selection in settings similarly to how Slack allows you to choose Tweetbot as your Twitter client instead of the native Twitter app.

This would also apply to Reminders for me since I use Fantastical as my reminders app, as well. :tada:

We’ll have a look if this is possible.
