In this article, we will show you how to add ICS (Internet Calendar Schedule) files to a Google Calendar. Simply follow the process below.
"ICS" stands for iCalendar (or Internet Calendar Schedule) file format. It is used by several email and calendar programs, including Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, and Apple Calendar. It allows users to store and exchange calendar information such as events, appointments, and tasks. Follow the process below to add .ics files to Google Calendar.
Locate and click the gear icon in the top right corner of your Google Calendar page. This will open a dropdown menu where you should select "Settings."
In the settings menu, find the "Import & Export" section. This may be listed on the left side or within the tabs across the top of the settings page.
Within the "Import & Export" section, select the tab labeled "Import." This is specifically for adding new calendar events via an ICS file.
Click on the button that says “Select file from your computer.” Browse your files and select the ICS file you wish to import into your Google Calendar.
If you have more than one calendar, use the dropdown menu to select which calendar you want the ICS file's events to be added to. This ensures the events go into the correct calendar.
After selecting your ICS file and the destination calendar, click the “Import” button. This will start the process of adding the events from your ICS file to the chosen calendar.
After clicking import, wait for a confirmation message to appear. This indicates that the import is successful. Check your calendar to see the newly added events.
