Exporting Your Old Google Calendar to Your New Google Account

If you’ve been a Google user for a while, chances are that you have one or more Google Calendars you have been using and sharing.  You can export your calendars from your Google account and import it to your new Google Apps account.  You could also just share your most important calendars to your new email address, but this is the unofficial way of having access to all of your events.  You might run into some issues doing it this way because you aren’t changing ownership you are just making that calendar appear on your new calendar.  

Google provides great step by step ways of getting complete control of your old calendars in your new account.  It does require some downloading and as usual with Google there is more than one way to do this.  I like the export and import options for all calendars unless you have some calendars you really don’t use or like.  Click here for step by step instructions for moving your calendar events.  You will be downloading a file and uploading a file to your new account.  It is very quick and easy!  Please note that any shared calendars will not be exported if you are not the owner of the calendar.  As we progress through our Google Apps training we will show you how to have people share with you and share within groups of our domain.
