    we don’t have any import features atm but we’re planning on adding an ical importer soon. csv will probably not come along for a while.

    Hey there.
    First of all, let me say: Events Manager is a great tool and such a big help! I’m new to WordPress’ world and now searching for a solution how to handle lots of events in Events Manager. …

    I’m working for a NGO offering no-charge tickets for theatre, concerts and so on for people with low income. We want to implement a calendar on our website which shows all the events with free entry in one city – and serendipitously these are a lot.

    So is there any possibility to import e.g. Excel tables or something else to Events Manager?

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    Cheers!

    this isn’t available at the moment however someone in pro forum share this snippet and maybe this will give you an idea.

    Hi
    I can’t understand that this function hasn’t been developped yet…
    I think (may be I’m wrong !) that a lot of EM users have thousands of events to edit…
    I believe in miracles… !

    Yes we would love to use this but an upload systen would be essential, typing it in for so many clients is a real pain.

    it won’t be a xmas miracle, but we’ll get there eventually

    I agree this would be a great feature.

    Hi – what is the latest status in being able to import an ical file? Thanks

    no eta atm, but given it’s a popular request we’ll be looking into this asap

    Great – thanks – much appreciated! I love the software btw but can’t really move forward without being able to import a file of events as lots already on our system!

    hi @tashmina,

    if you can code you can try the snippet above – http://pastebin.com/3UDjZ8Le (it’s using rss but maybe you can convert it to support ical)

    That’s kind of you, but sadly no I don’t code, and would not know where to start with this….! Thanks anyway!

    Dear Marcus

    You mentioned previously that “no eta atm, but given it’s a popular request we’ll be looking into this asap” – can I just ask whether you think we are talking days, weeks, months or years? Sorry to press you for more of a clue but I am just trying to work out a plan for my business….also, I guess there would need to be a simple upload for venues in a file (sorry,. locations) with their address details first as I don;t think one could have them stored in the ical file for each event before it is uploaded? Then a manual job to link them??!

    I’ve tried a lot of mass import plugins and I can tell that WP Ultimate CSV Importer works great to bulk import events !
    If this can save time to everybody… 🙂

    Thanks! I will try it.
