    Hello, I just worked with Microsoft Support on this issue and here's what I found in the process. Can definitely view in list view and copy all calendar events from a calendar to the Group calendar. If you copy all at once and there are events that are a series they will not upload to the Group calendar. Selecting all events that are not a series and copy, good to go. So just copy the select occurrence once to the Group calendar and then get someone to edit them and make them reoccur again. Hope that helps for now...

    Part 2:

    The process of saving off the contents of the source calendar to an ICS file and then attempting to import it into the target Office 365 Group calendar is not possible. The only target of the import of the ICS file is the "current user's" Calendar. There is no option to select another one (e.g. the Office 365 Group calendar)

    This is a big issue for our organization. We have quite a few shared calendars which need to be migrated to their new Office 365 Groups.

    This process STILL does not work in the full Outlook Client:

    1.) Switch to the "List View" of the source calendar (Shared Mailbox)
    2.) Select all entries & copy them
    3.) Switch to the "List View" of the target calendar (Office 365 Group)
    4.) Paste the entries

    Linked to request, to be able to export group shared cals to csv and ical also for group cals to have their own category tags independent of individuals category tags. To use category tags in a shared cal they need to have shared meaning.

    I really think that the overall handling of calendars in O365 could be more "unified", sharing/permissions, importing/exporting, copying/moving of events, etc.

    Why is there such a barrier between personal and group calendars?

    Stunned that I have to vote for basic necessities, no idea I can't migrate our shared google calendar

    Hello everyone,

    As of now we can not import ICS directly.

    if you have time I have manual way to do this.

    you need to drag and drop ICS file to group Calendar.

    Once done it will open the file click on save and it was be saved on group calendar ( make sure only group Calendar is selected)

    There is a way to get around this, though it is convoluted. You can import the calendar into Outlook. Then export it as an Outlook calendar. Then import to the Shared Calendar.

    That’s no help. It doesn’t work for groups!! MS had to leave something out! Ridiculous!!!

    This is a function I have used previously on a daily basis and am disappointed we cannot import calendar items on a Group calendar.
