TOPIC: Event Import/Export CSV does not work

Event Import/Export CSV does not work 3 Years, 9 Months ago  
I have been unsuccessfully trying to import a CSV file.

The original file that I attempted to import was Outlook-generated. Although the items were all imported, the field values were incorrect.

I therefore created an event entry in Rainlendar, and exported it to check the format. Based on the structure of the exported file, I reordered and retitled the columns of the Outlook-generated file, and imported it again, but the time and date fields were still incorrect - they all showed today's date (regardless of the date specified in the CSV file) and the wrong times.

I then created an entry in Rainlendar, exported it as a CSV file, and reimported it. Again, the date and time data was incorrect. I attach a screen print of the Manager showing the original entry (second in the list), and the reimported entry (first in the list).

Surely it should be possible to export a CSV file, and reimport it?

The date format in the csv file depend on the current locale so if it's something that Rainlendar cannot parse the import will most likely fail. Can you attach a sample file?

I attach the "test" CSV file that was generated by creating a single test entry in Rainlendar. Is this what you need?

Thanks. The year is missing couple of digits so the event is set to year 11. I'll add a fix for this in the next build.
