    What is Gmail Calendar?

    Gmail Calendar, also known as Google Calendar, is a calendar app that enables users to manage multiple aspects of their schedules in one place. It is designed to help organize both work and personal tasks and events, offering a seamless way to manage time and responsibilities. As a secure service, Google Calendar allows for the addition of tasks, setting of due dates, and marking tasks as complete. These tasks can be integrated from Gmail or the Google Tasks app.

    Google Calendar's functionality extends to managing appointments through its Appointment Schedules feature, letting others book time with the user. Time Insights provide users with an analytical view of how they spend their time within the calendar. Additionally, the app supports location-specific RSVPs and enables users to share their working location or daily routine with colleagues, thus promoting collaborative planning and scheduling.

    For group activities or collaborative work environments, Google Calendar allows the creation of group calendars and the ability to add locations or meeting rooms to invites. It also supports migrating and syncing with all types of calendars, ensuring flexibility and accessibility for users with varied scheduling needs.

    Exporting Gmail Calendar to CSV

    Exporting Events from All Calendars

    You can export events from all calendars that are listed under "My calendars" on the left side of Google Calendar. To create an archive of your data, access the calendar settings, and make the necessary changes to manage sharing settings to enable the export feature.

    Avoiding Feed Processing Errors

    When exporting your calendar, you may encounter a "feed processing error" if you use the link under "Public address in iCal format". To avoid this, make sure to use the address provided under "Secret address in iCal format".

    Handling Limitations for Work or School Accounts

    If you're using Google Calendar through your work, school, or other organization, you may not be able to export events directly. In such cases, you should contact your admin for assistance. Super administrators of a Google domain have the ability to download or migrate the organization's data, including calendar events.

    Using Your Data in Another Service

    After exporting your calendar data, you can use this data in another service. Simply download the data that hasn't been deleted and create an archive for your records. Be aware that if you use a work or school account, some data might not be available for download due to account restrictions.
