I'm always on the hunt for things to make my life easier, so not sure how I didn't see this sooner.
I'm a member of various IBM Connections communities, and in those communities I often see Upcoming Events that I wish to attend.
When you select an event, you can click "Will Attend"
I'd like to have a calendar entry in my Notes calendar so 1) I'll remember to go! and 2) no one will schedule a meeting over this time.
Today I discovered that you can configure a new Calendar in Notes and point it at an iCal feed for Connections. You can get the iCal feed from an Event page within Connections. Copy the URL.

You'll have to specify your own userid, but the url looks like this:
Now when I click "Will Attend" for an Event in Connections, it gets added to my Notes calendar.
