How to Merge Events from 2 or More Sub-calendars into One

If you need to keep your sub-calendar count down, or simply wish to restructure your sub-calendars, here are the steps to achieve this:

  1. Decide which sub-calendar is to remain, e.g. sub-calendar A. Consider choosing the one with the most events or the one most familiar to your users.
  2. Go to Settings > Export and export the events from sub-calendar B (and any other sub-calendars that are to be merged into sub-calendar A) to a .csv file.

    export calendar events to csv file

  3. Open the .csv file and prepare it for import by changing the “Calendar Name” value for each event to the name of the sub-calendar that it is to be merged to.

    change calendar name in .csv file

  4. Go to Settings > Import. Import the .csv file. Leave the Calendar Name field blank since all events in your .csv file have the Calendar Name specified.
  5. Go to Settings > Calendars. Delete sub-calendar B (and any other sub-calendars that were included in step 2 above).

Pro tip: Create a test calendar by starting one of our Live Demo calendars to test your data before importing to your live calendar in step 4. Imports can not be undone!
