Import iCal Events

Description of iCalendar Format

To access this form, from the menu choose VIEW | IMPORT | IMPORT ICAL FILE and follow the steps below:

  1. Copy and paste the URL to the calendar file into the URL box

    OR

    Use the BROWSE button to browse for a local file.
  2. Select the calendar the events go into using the dropdown.
  3. Select the defaults for Event type, Contact Name, Contact Info, Addl. Info URL.

    If an event is imported, and that event does not have an assigned category, then this event type is used. If the event has assigned categories that do not exist in Connect Daily, the categories will be automatically added.

    For Contact Name, Contact Info, and Addl. Info URL, if those values are not present, use these as the default. You can use the Other Fields block to specify additional defaults for standard or custom fields. Enter the defaults in FieldName:Value pair format, one entry per line.
  4. Import Event Times - Some iCal files have times on the events, even though they are actually all-day, untimed events. Uncheck this option to discard the event times.
  5. Use Privacy Class - If this option is checked, then any events marked as private will be imported as private.
  6. Click on the Import button.

If all goes well, you will get a message indicating how many Items were imported. Any Events not imported will be displayed. If you have many events, you can EMail the URL or file to technical support and we can take a look at it.

If All Doesn't Go Well!

You can undo the last import by returning to the iCal import screen. Below the import screen will be an undo block that will let you back out the last import
