How do I import Calendar entries from a file?

Updated Dec 11, 2020

Go to Calendar.

Select the Calendar tool from the Tool Menu in your site.

Choose Import Events.

Note: If you do not see the Import Events option, you may need to check the Permissions for the Calendar to see if the Import Events permission is enabled for your role in the site.

Choose the import file format.

Select the type of calendar file you are importing (Generic calendar import (comma separate values), iCalendar, Meeting Maker, or Microsoft Outlook), and then select Continue.

Choose your file.

Select the Choose File button to browse for  your file, and then select Continue.

Note: Your import file must be in a specific format. For example, if you selected the generic calendar import option, you will see a link for a Generic Import Template that you can download to view an example of the correct import file format.

Preview items and import events.

You will now see a preview of the items to be imported. Verify that all the event information looks correct.

  1. Remove the check mark for any items you don't want to import.
  2. If you would like to import events for a specific group, select Import events for selected groups, and then select the desired group.
  3. Select Import Events to complete the import.
