Import an Outlook Calendar to SharePoint

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint icon If you have lots of information in Outlook and you want to get all that into SharePoint, it is possible to import it quickly by following a few steps. It is also possible with an ICS file.

ICS is a format for calendar files that are used by various calendars including Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Microsoft Outlook. Calendars on websites can also use this format, and in that case they can be downloaded to Outlook.

In this tutorial in the SharePoint Online from Scratch series, Peter Kalmström, shows how to combine the downloading from a website with the SharePoint connect to Outlook feature. By doing that he can have a calendar from a website in SharePoint.

This is what Peter shows in the demo below:

  • How to download calendar from a website to Outlook.

  • How to create a new calendar in SharePoint.

  • How to edit links in the SharePoint Quick Launch.

  • How to switch calendar views in Outlook.

  • How to copy event from a website calendar and paste them into a SharePoint calendar.
Now you will see all the website calendar events available in the SP calendar.




Note that the calendars do not synchronize. This is an import, and if you want to update the SharePoint calendar with new data from Outlook, you have to import again.
