@Microsoft, all we need is a way to import an ICS into the Microsoft 365 group calendar natively. It just means we can migrate our calendars from external sources into Office 365

Importing/Exporting from file should be a part of Gorup Calendars' basic functionality. The fact that it isn't is a MAJOR oversight on Microsoft's part.
I need to be able to export group calendar events to my phone's native calendar app, so it will sync with my watch. A simple ICS would do it, but short of copying each individual event into my personal calendar prior to export, this feature is completely missing.
Trying to migrate from shared Google calendars for each team.
O365 Groups was touted as the recommended way of having shared team calendars.
Yet there's no apparent way to import them. Going to try via Flows.

This is horrible this can't be done

For anyone needing to import the ICS, I've found a way using Powershell and Microsoft Graph API to do it.
Please see this post https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2270817-importing-ics-into-office-365-group-calendar for the script/instructions.
Hopefully this will help someone.

While it doesn't solve the underlying problem, MS flow may be of some use, if you can use another calendar as a staging point. import there, then use flow to copy. Far less than optimal though.
I too want to be able to import to group calendars.
What. The. ****.
2020 and still can't do this simple simple feature which we discover too late.... on site doing s migration.... This will slow us Massively!!
I need to be able to import an .ics file to a group calendar. It's so easy to import to all of the normal calendars. Why can't I import an .ics file to a group calendar?
I do see that the outlook IOS App now supports office 365 Group calendars, but without the ability to copy events from shared or personal calendars, It's still impossible to transition completely to office 365 groups. Teams, Sharepoint, and Planner are solid. Group emails (Conversations) need to have subfolders and calendar needs to be able to import/export. Unfortunately, I don't see this on the Microsoft Roadmap.
How do you expect people to migrate to your platform if there is no way to import existing group calendars? This is just basic stuff. If you had just started with a Shared Mailbox and built Teams/Office 365 Groups on top of that, you'd be in good shape. Now we're forces to use 3 separate half-baked solutions.
I have to use public folders for Company/Team Calendars and Contacts ONLY because I cant import the thousands of existing items but Public Folders do not integrate with mobile apps or web apps easily.
I'm using teams basically just for the teams app.
Please make such OS365 Group improvements a priority! Microsoft is setting a great direction with OS365 Group integration with Teams. I'm trying to set direction for my organization to depend on it for scheduling, communication, and collaboration.
What is this joke? O365 has way too many basic function missing. This is just as stupid as OneNote does not have proper working Tag function.
Please fix this.
I contacted Microsoft Support, there is still no solution.
I can't believe this is not possible ?!!
Does any solution actually exist to import a calendar ? How many contexts would need this ? (migrating to O365, creating a group from an old one, etc...)
When i migrated to O365, i didn't thought that basic features like this would be missing.
no solution in the future?
I know at least 2 large organizations that would benefit from this. Can't believe this isn't possible.
Would be great if we could import to O365 Group Calendars
Really do need the ability to import events from one calendar to another. None of the suggested work-arounds are working for me.
for the love of all that's holy.. This.. This right here needs to be upvoted.
