Change ical label for Events Calendar
Following up from our last Subcommittee meeting in Spring 2015 is this suggestion:
Change ical label for Event Calendar.
Boone, I think that this is something you brought up during the meeting. Unfortunately, I did not note what you wanted the label changed to. If you do, please make the change!

I don't have a suggestion. The obvious choice is something like "Add to my calendar", where "my calendar" is understood as Google Calendar or whatever. But this quickly becomes confusing, because "my calendar" could also mean the Events section on my profile; and this confusion becomes even greater when and if we add the ability to manually add events to one's calendar from within the Commons. Maybe we stick with "Download iCal file", but we have help text of some sort? Sam, Ray, any ideas?

iCal might be too jargony, since it is an abbreviation of "iCalendar".
Maybe "Download iCalendar file"? With a "Help" link that describes what an iCalendar file is? Like:

I agree that 'Download iCal file' is a bit jargony because the connotation is Apple-specific. How about we turn it into a sentence for more context?
" to save this event to your Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook Calendar, or other calendar software."
