How do I transfer events from one calendar to another? #calendar #howto


Renée Munson
 

Hi,

I am a new owner/moderator for our homeschool group.  We have created a planning calendar that is viewable by a subgroup.  We would like to be able to upload/transfer the events on that planning calendar to the calendar for the main group 3 times each year.  In other words, ideally a few people would be changing things and moving things around in the planning calendar for a while, then we could transfer all those planned events to the main calendar (viewed by the entire membership) all at once.  Is this possible?

If not, is there a way to copy or transfer events one at a time from one calendar to another?

Thanks,
R Munson


 

R,

calendar (viewed by the entire membership) all at once. Is this

Well, at the bottom of the planning calendar pages is a blue "Subscribe to Calendar" button. Clicking on that will give you a link to a page containing that calendar's events in iCalendar (.ics) file format.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICalendar

But that's only half an answer, because I don't know of a way to then import that file into the main calendar.

Likewise one by one. In each event you can download it as an .ics file, but then there's still no way to import them into the main calendar.

Got it. Thank-you. Is there a central “wishlist” where one could request such a feature, in some future update, from the powers that be? ;-)

Just the ability to import a file like that into the main calendar would be enough. Then, we could make the planning calendar in google or ical and import from there. (or out and back again)

Thanks!

Suggestions should be posted on the beta group.  There's an item for calendar features that you could add support for, https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/20346954

Note that you can export your groups.io calendar to Google...just not the other way 'round.
