How to copy outlook calendar appointments to SharePoint calendar

Hi All,

We all know there is a way we can synchronize SharePoint calendar with outlook and then work from outlook or from SharePoint and changes get synchronized automatically.

However, if you already have outlook calendar and want to sync the calendar with SharePoint calendar, then follow this approach.

Following is the approach for outlook 2007.

1) Create one calendar in SharePoint site and connect it with outlook.
2) Open your source outlook calendar, click on that calendar.
3) Open view menu – >Current View-> All appointments.
4) Hit Ctrl+A button to select all appointments.
5) Simple drag all appointments to the respective destination calendar in outlook. (Destination calendar will be the one that we synchronized in step2)

Just make sure that person who is synchronizing the calendar should have appropriate permission to write in the calendar.

That’s it. Your job is done.
