    The CSV importer allows you to use a CSV using comma, tab or space separated values. This is handy when making CSVs in Excel as you can just copy paste to notepad and save it as a tabbed TSV file.

    The import preview function is also really nice.

    It didn't work well when importing repeating events. It does import the events but it takes a bit of trial and error. I didn't have many repeating events so it was easier just to do them manually rather than work out the problem.

    One improvement request would be to auto-detect the columns names from the header row. It is tedious to manually select the ten or so columns on every import.

    Thanks for the feedback! Auto-detecting headers is definately on the roadmap. Along wth pre-defined 'recipes', so you can select "I'm importing from X" where X could be Event Organiser or some other calendar application and it would know what each column was for based on what the CSV layout produced by that application.

    I think it would be nice to review how events would be imported too before.kt actually imports the events.
