Map fields when importing
When you import a calendar file from another program, you can map fieldscategories of information that make up an event, such as Start Time and Start Datefrom the file you're importing to fields that Trumba® Connect understands.
In most cases, when you export a file from another program, the file will include fields that Trumba Connect recognizes and maps properly as you import the file. However, if you have a problem importing a particular file, or if some of the information you exported doesn't appear in Trumba Connect as you expect, you can start troubleshooting by making sure all of the fields are mapped correctly.
To map fields
- Start the import process, and after you select the file, specify where to import it, and set the time zone, click step 3, Map fields.
Caution We recommend that you first import the file into a new calendar, to make sure that the events appear the way you want. Also, if you're importing the file a second time, create a new calendar. Importing the same file into a calendar a second time adds a second copy of the events.
- In the map-fields form, the labels on the left are the fields that your file contains, and the drop-down lists are the available fields you can map them to. Do the following:
- Review the fields that are mapped to make sure they're correct.
- If any of the items are mapped to Don't Know, select the appropriate field from the list.
Some fields may not have a corresponding Trumba Connect field, and you can set these fields to None (or leave them set to Don't Know). For example, some .ics files contain a UID (unique ID) field, which does not map to a Trumba Connect field.
Note Currently, Trumba Connect does not have a field to which you can map event reminders. If the Reminder On/Off or similar field is included in the file you import, select None for the Trumba Connect field.
- Click Next, verify that the summary information is correct, and click Import to finish the import process.
