NOTE: You can also open the import and export wizards from the "Data" tab in the settings.


The wizard will appear, select "Data File" for the file type and click "Next":

Now click on the folder icon to the right of the file name box. A dialog box will appear asking you to select a data file. Choose a file and click "Open".

You will now see the file name you selected in the wizard and the option "Don't add items that are already present". This means if there are any events that are the same (i.e. duplicates) then they will be ignored. It is recommended you keep this option ticked. Click on "Next" to move to the next step.

You will then be asked which dates and types of events you want to import. The date range options are pretty self explanatory. "All dates" includes every event in the Data File. "From today onwards" includes all the events after and including the date you're importing on. And "Selected dates" makes two drop down calendars appear allowing you to pick your own date range.

You can also choose which type of events you want to import e.g. only Weekly, Monthly etc. If you want everything to be included, make sure all the boxes are ticked. When you're finished, click "Next".
