Add Holiday (calendar) to an existing calendar

Post by ronlin » Wed Nov 18, 2015 10:32 am

I want to add the holiday dates that you have in the "holiday calendar" into an existing calendar that I'm now using to post appts, etc. The result would be just one calendar, which would have both my entered appointments and the holidays. Is this possible?
thanks RJG

Hi RJG, what you describe is possible, but it requires a few steps:

1. If you've already added a holiday calendar, skip this step. Otherwise, use the "Add Public Calendars and Holidays" command on the File menu to add the desired holiday calendar. This will be a separate calendar but will be merged with your main calendar in the following steps.

2. Export the holiday calendar to an iCalendar file, using the "Export Events" command on the File menu.

3. After exporting the calendar, right-click its name and select "Delete Calendar".

4. On the File menu, click "Import Events".

5. Import the file that was exported in step 2. On the Import window, there's a drop-down list that lets you specify which calendar should contain the imported events. Select your existing calendar instead of importing into a new calendar.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
