Adding Events to Outlook 2007 Calendar

Postby ggraham » Fri Sep 04, 2009 12:33 pm

I have noticed that the link at the bottom of an "Event Edited" email notification where it says, "Click here to add this event to your calendar.", results in the download of an .ics file which causes Outlook 2007 to create a new calendar. The calendar is named with the event name and only contains the one event. I don't think people want a new calendar for each event they add.

I looked at the .ics file, and it has a line that begins with "X-WR-CALNAME:" followed by the event name, but this name is also given on the "SUMMARY:" line. If I remove the "X-WR-CALNAME:" line, Outlook 2007 imports a single event into my personal calendar, which is what I would expect. Is this line necessary in this case since it is not really the name of a calendar, but the event name?

The "X-WR-CALNAME:" property has been removed for single event exports. Let us know if any issues persist.
