Export your Google calendar

You can export events from all your calendars, or just a single calendar.

Ways to export calendars

You can only export calendars listed under "My calendars" on the left side of Google Calendar. To export a calendar, you also need to have the "Make changes and manage sharing" setting.

Troubleshoot problems

"Feed processing error"

If you use the link under "Public address in iCal format," you might get this error.

Instead, use the address under "Secret address in iCal format." If you don't find this section, you can't export the file.

Can't export events

If you use Google Calendar through your work, school, or other organizations, you may not be able to export events. If you want to export from one of these accounts, contact your admin.
