How to get here...
- This window will appear after commanding events to
import from an
ics file, if the destination calendar contains
events that weren't found in the imported file.
When importing an ICS file to a destination calendar, via the
window, the Delete/Overwrite Events window will be shown if the
destination calendar contains existing events that do not appear
to match any of the imported events. This enables you to pick and choose which existing events should be deleted
or overwritten with data from the ICS file. This is useful if
you have an existing calendar that you've added events to, and
want to add some additional events by importing from an ICS
file, without losing events previously entered.
Selecting Events to Delete or Overwrite
To select which dates should be deleted or overwritten based
on the contents of the ICS file, use the checkboxes in the list.
- Any events that have a checkmark will be deleted or
- You can use the 'Select All' and 'Select None' buttons
to toggle checkmarks for all events in the list.
- The list can be sorted by event title or starting date,
by clicking the column header.
When you are satisfied with your selections, click the
Continue Importing button to complete the import.
- If the window is closed without any events selected (all
unchecked), all existing events will be preserved in the
destination calendar, and new events will be imported from
the ICS file. Note, this may result in duplicates of an
event, if the same event exists in both the destination
calendar and the ICS file.
- If the window is closed with all events selected
(checked), the destination calendar will match exactly the
contents of the ICS file. Any events that previously existed
in the destination calendar will be deleted or overwritten.
You will be prompted to confirm.
- If the window is closed with some events checked, and
others unchecked, only those events that were checked will
be deleted or overwritten. The unchecked events will be
preserved in the destination calendar.
