Import Google Calendar to Outlook

Import Google Calendar to Outlook

You can import Google calendar to Outlook by following the steps below:

  • Open your Google calendar in a web browser and click on the settings icon in the top right corner of the screen. It looks like a gear.
  • Select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
  • Locate the calendar you want to import into Outlook and click the calendar name.
  • Then click on “Integrate calendar“.
  • Scroll down until you see the option “Home address in iCal format” and copy that address.

  • Create a text file on your computer and copy the address into it.
  • Then save the file with any filename and the .ics extension. Use “All files” as the file type in the drop-down selection and please keep UTF-8 for the encoding.
  • Save this file anywhere on your PC.

  • Open Outlook on your computer.
  • Click “File” in the top left.
  • Click “Open and Export“.
  • Click “Import/Export“.
  • In the Import and Export Wizard, select “Import an iCalendar (ICS) or vCalendar file (VCS)” and click Next.

Here you now have the option of integrating the Google calendar into your existing Outlook calendar or embedding it as an independent calendar. You have to decide for yourself what makes more sense. If you otherwise also work with several calendars, it makes sense to let the Google calendar run independently, otherwise it is more practical if you integrate the Google calendar into your existing one, so that appointment conflicts are easier to recognize.
