"ACTE000002","Another Calendar","2023-09-10T14:00:00+00:00","2023-09-10T15:00:00+00:00","Test Import Command Two","Yes, this is also a description.","[{ 'name': 'A custom field', 'value': 'Test value. It was working but with warnings.', 'class': 'warning'}]"
"ACTE000003","Another Calendar","2023-09-10T14:00:00+00:00","2023-09-10T15:00:00+00:00","Test Import Command Three","Aaaaand another description for an imported event.","[{ 'name': 'A custom field', 'value': 'Three is a charm. Now it is working properly.', 'class': 'success'}]"

The import is started by executing the command:

oitc ChangecalendarModule.Import -f /tmp/kalender.csv


The imported file will remain untouched. It is only read during import and not synchronized with existing events.


The import file has an additional field which is used to identify an event uniquely. In this case, an existing event will be updated during import.
