COPYING EVENTS FROM YOUR PERSONAL CALENDAR INTO YOUR SMITH CALENDAR

This document explains how to copy all the events in a personal Google Calendar into an ICS file, then import those events into your Smith Calendar.

Note that this is not the same as actually sharing a calendar. For sharing instructions, view this PDF file.

Requirements

  • A personal Google Calendar with calendar events
  • An active Smith Mail account

Limitations of the import/export procedure

  • Note that guests and resources will not transfer to your Smith Calendar because they are based on your personal Google account.

  • You will need to re-add any guests and resources, then re-send invitations.

Exporting events from your personal Google calendar

  1. Log in to your personal Google calendar: calendar.google.com

  2. Under My calendars, click on the down-arrow beside your name and choose Settings.

  3. At the bottom of the Settings window, find the section labeled Private Address and click the button labeled ICAL:

  4. A pop-up window will appear showing the private address of your calendar.

  5. Click on the private address link and save the ICAL file to your desktop. The file will be called basic.ics.

Importing events into a Smith Calendar

  1. Log in to your Smith Calendar: calendar.smith.edu

  2. If you wish to add your personal events to an existing calendar, skip to step 4.

  3. If you wish to create a new calendar for your personal events:

    1. Click the down-arrow beside My Calendar and choose Settings.
    2. Click Create new calendar.
    3. Name your calendar, then click Create calendar.

  4. Click the down-arrow beside My Calendar and choose Settings.

  5. In the Settings window, click the Import Calendar link.

  6. In the Import Calendar window, click Choose File, browse to the basic.ics file, and select it.

  7. Select the name of the calendar to which the events should be added.
