The last step is providing the Facebook page ID within Calendars>Add/Edit new Calendar section. Get the Facebook page ID from About section of the Facebook page. That’s the last item in the list.
Importing events from Facebook page
You can import Facebook page events to your calendars. Go to Events>Import FB events, select the options and press “Import” button.
The list of the Facebook page events will become visible on the corner of the right side. Here you can select the events you want to import, set category, the calendar (where the events will be added), check the events and press “Save Selected Events” button below.
