We described earlier how to view your Google Calendar in Outlook. But what if you just want to share a static snapshot of your calendar with someone? There is also a way to do this.
Sharing a static snapshot can be useful if you want to share your Google Calendar with a colleague ̵
If you want to share a static snapshot, you need to export and import your calendar
Export a Google Calendar
Exporting a Google Calendar is pretty easy. Sign in to your Google Account and navigate to Calendar. When you are there, find the calendar you want to share and hover over the three dots.
Click on the three dots and click on "Settings and Sharing" in the displayed menu.
Click the Export Calendar button at the top of the settings and click on it.
"export calendar" button "width =" 256 "height =" 153 "src =" /pagespeed_static/1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif "onload =" pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); "onerror =" this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); "/> The" Export calendar "button" width = "256" height = "153" src = "/pagespeed_static/1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif" onload = "pagespeed.lazyLoadImages .loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); " onerror = "this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);" />
This downloads a copy of your calendar to a ZIP file. Depending on your browser and settings, you may be asked if you want to open or save the ZIP file. First, save the file to your computer.
Importing a Google Calendar
Your exported Google Calendar has the ICS format, a standard format for open iCalendar formats that can be opened by almost any calendar app. You must export the ICS file from the previously exported ZIP file for access.
Importing to a Mail App, such as Outlook or Apple Mail
If you want to import your calendar into an application on your computer, double-click the ICS file. Your default calendar application – usually Windows Mail or Outlook on a Windows computer; Apple Mail on a Mac: Data is automatically opened and imported to display as an additional calendar.
Congratulations, you're done.
Removing the calendar when you no longer need it is easy too. The method differs slightly depending on the email app. In Outlook, right-click the calendar and select Delete Calendar.
Import into a web app like another Google Calendar
If you want to import your calendar into another web application like another Google Calendar, you need to import it import manually. Sign in to the Google Account you want to import the calendar to and go to Calendar.
In the list of calendars on the left, click the plus sign next to "Other calendars."
Click the "Import" option in the menu that appears.
At the top of the open page you will find the option to import a file. Select the previously downloaded ICS file and click on the "Import" button.
Unlike importing to an app on your computer, when you import it into Google Calendar, the events in the file appear in your calendar. This means that you can not simply delete the imported calendar. The only way to remove them is to delete the events one at a time.
