You might want to export a Trumba® calendar's events for a couple of reasons:
When you export events from a Trumba calendar, all of the information about each event gets exported. For example, in addition to start and end dates and times and the event title, location information and description are also exported.
However, keep these things in mind when exporting:
When you export a Trumba calendar, you can choose between two file formats:
iCalendar is a standard calendar format that enables sharing of calendars through the Internet between web sites and personal calendar programs. You can import .ics files into iCal, Sunbird, and other programs.
iCalendar format supports repeating events and custom field data. If you're backing up your Trumba calendar data or you know that the program you'll be importing the calendar data into supports .ics, this is the best format to choose.
Comma Separated Values format is a simple, tabular file format in which fields containing data are separated by commas. You can import .csv files into Outlook, Yahoo Calendar, and other programs.
Some calendar programs can import .csv files but not .ics files. However, .csv format does not support repeating events. Each instance of a repeating event from your Trumba calendars will be stored in the exported .csv file as a separate event.
Tip If you use the Microsoft® Internet Explorer or FireFox® browser, you can quickly export an .ics file by clicking the iCal button at the top right corner of the displayed calendar. When you're prompted to Open or Save the file, click Save.
