Change all events to use defaults.

Post by Meilziner » Wed Mar 31, 2021 10:21 am

For whatever reason, I find that not all events' reminders are using my defaults. Is there a way to reset all events on the calendar at once instead of one at a time?
This would be useful should I make any future change in my defaults

Hi Meilziner, the default reminder is only used when creating new events. Unfortunately, there's no simple mechanism for applying the default reminder to all previously created events. However, you could to this by following these steps:
  1. Click the "File -> Export -> Export Events" menu command.
  2. Select "iCalendar (ics) file" as the export type and click Next.
  3. Uncheck the option for including reminders and extended data before continuing with the export.
  4. After exporting, right-click your calendar in the calendar list and select "Delete Calendar".
  5. Create a new calendar and configure the default reminder as needed.
  6. Click the "File -> Import -> Import Events" menu command.
  7. Select "iCalendar (ics) file" as the import type and click Next.
  8. Select your iCalendar file.
  9. Change the "Destination calendar" to the calendar that was created previously.
  10. Make sure the box labeled "Use destination calendar defaults" is checked, and then continue with the import. The imported events should all get the default reminder you configured.
I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
