Google Calendar: Import Event Information from Yahoo! Calendar

Posted November 9, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Google

Changing calendar applications can seem like a rather overwhelming task due to the need to copy all of your events, appointments, birthdays and such from one calendar to another. Instead of relying on copy and paste or typing in each event, you can easily import your event info from Yahoo! Calendar into your Google Calendar, here’s how:

1. Go to Yahoo! Calendar and login to your calendar.

2. Go to the upper right corner and select Options.

3. Under the Management column, click Import/Export.

4. Go to the Export to Outlook section at the bottom of the page. Click the Export button.

5. Save the csv file to your computer.

6. Go to Google Calendar and login to your calendar.

7. Go to the My Calendars section on the left side of the page.

8. Click Add and select Import Calendar.

9. Click the Browse button and go to the location that you placed the .csv file. Select the saved file and click Open. Select the Calendar where the imported events will be saved from the dropdown. Click the Import button.

10. Once the import has completed, the page will show you how many events were processed and how many were successfully imported.

11. Click the OK button.

    Yahoo has changed a couple of things :

    – ‘Options’ now appears in the upper left on the Yahoo calendar page

    – the created .csv file has now been changed to an .ics file

    …but otherwise, all went as planned.

    Thanks SO much – i had gone through a couple of different calendars trying to import all that info.
