The difference between importing and subscribing to a calendar
When you import an .ics file, you get a snapshot of the events in the calendar at the time of import. Your calendar does not refresh the imported events automatically even if the calendar's owner makes an update.
Subscribing to an online calendar connects it to your calendar. Whenever the calendar owner makes changes to the events, your calendar is updated.
