    All calendars can be exported as ICS files under “Settings > Display and Use > Maintenance > Export calendar as ICS file”. To import ICS files you need to create a local calendar in CalenGoo first (first create a local account under “Settings > Accounts”, then create a local calendar under “Settings > Visibility/Download”). Then you can import ICS files into it by using “Settings > Display and Use > Maintenance > Import calendar from ICS file”.

    It is also possible to subscribe to ICS files that can be accessed e.g. via http or https: Just tap “Settings > Accounts > Add account > Subscribe webcal URL”.

        I'd also like a batch export to export several calendars at the same time. The batch export could also allow one to export other data, such as the settings and tasks.

        Yes, please realize a batch export solution for all calendars. And - because the export files normally are named equal to the calendar names - a batch import function should work too (as alternative backup/recover option for those, who don't want to share their data with Google... ;-)

        I really love the possibility to export/import ICS files. As I don't use the Google calendar but 9 local CalenGoo calendars I need the export option for backup. But actually I have to do the export job 9 times to get a full backup of all my calendars.

        Could you please make it possible to select more than one calendar (e.g. with check boxes) when starting export.

        And - as I'm a very structured person - I'd really like an option to choose the path where to save the export files - or at least in a fixed folder like e.g. "CalenGoo" and not mixed with other files in the root directory of the sd card.

        @Juan: Yes, please send me your logfile: Please install the free "aLogcat" app from the Android Market. Then start CalenGoo and let it export your calendar to an ICS file to get the error message. Immediately afterward start "aLogcat" and use it to email me your logfile (to android@calengoo.com ). You must not wait too long because "aLogcat" sends only the last few seconds or minutes of the logfile. In the logfile I can probably see what is going wrong.

        In the past, I could export my calendar to an ICS file properly, but now I get an error message "An error has occurred" and I can't export my calendar anymore. Can you help me please?

        Yes please - that would be GREAT!
        I've already posted my comment in other topic - here again:
        ----
        Dear all,
        I also would like to use an other calendar repository than google's account! For my business and private calendars I use the ics standart (I access an ics file over FTP Link on a server - thunderbird's lightning do sync on this way). There is no app which is able to do such a sync :(
        This is the only reason I don't use calendar on android at all - and I really miss a calendar app/widget on my smartphone
        brgds, roman.
