Sharing Calendar Info

5.18. How Do I Import a Calendar That Is in iCalendar Format?

As mentioned in FAQ 5.16, the iCalendar format enables you to exchange data between different calendar and scheduling applications that support RFC 2445. For example, if someone who is using Lotus Notes wants to share a calendar with you, that person can simply export to iCalendar format. You would then do the following to import that calendar file after you've received it:

1.
From the File menu, select Import and Export to invoke the Import and Export Wizard.

2.
From the Choose an action to perform list, click the Import an iCalendar or vCalendar file option and click the Next button.

3.
When the Browse dialog box is displayed, note that the dialog box defaults to displaying only iCalendar-formatted files (those with an .ics extension). Therefore, if you're attempting to import a vCalendar file, you need to click the Files of type drop-down list and then select vCalendar Format (*.vcs).

4.
Locate and select the desired iCalendar file and click the OK button.
