Export Calendar from Outlook

  1. In Outlook, in Calendar, select a calendar to make it the active calendar in the view.

  2. On the File menu, click Save As.

  3. Type a name for the iCal file in the File name text box. This name should be easy to recognize and meaningful for you and your recipients.
    A summary of the calendar name, date range, and detail level appears next to More Options. If you are satisfied with the summary, proceed to step 8, otherwise continue with step 4.

  4. Click More Options.

  5. From the Date Range list, choose the amount of calendar data to include in the iCal file, or click Specify dates to enter a custom date range.

    TIP: If you choose a large date range or select Whole calendar, you might create a large iCalendar file.

  6. From the Detail list, choose the amount of detail to show the recipients. By default, the Availability only option is selected. None of the options include your items marked private unless you change the privacy option in Advanced.

  7. Optionally, click Show to see Advanced options.

    1. Include details of items marked private. This option requires Detail to be set to Limited Details or Full Details. The existence of private items will be included, but no further information will be shared.

    2. Include attachments within calendar items. This option requires Detail to be set to Full Details. All attachments in calendar items, such as spreadsheets, are included.
      Note: This might increase the size of the iCalendar file significantly.

  8. Click OK, and then click Save.

    Note: If your calendar contains no items, a dialog box appears to provide you with a chance to cancel saving the iCalendar file.

  9. Log onto your Google Calendar account.

  10. Click Settings at the top of the page.

  11. Under Calendar Settings, click Import Calendar.

  12. Under Step 1: Select File, click Browse, choose the file that you created in step 8, and then click Open.

  13. Under Step 2: Choose Calendar, select the Google Calendar where you want to import your Outlook calendar.

  14. Under Step 3: Complete Import, click Import.
