    What is iCloud Calendar?

    iCloud Calendar is a calendar tool designed for both personal and work use, helping users organize events through its ability to create and manage multiple calendars.

    Exporting Individual Calendar Events

    You can export a calendar's events by clicking the calendar's name in the calendar list. This will allow you to export an individual calendar's events to a .ics file, which you can then use to share with other users, back up the calendar, or import the events to another calendar or device at a later time.

    Exporting All Calendars at Once

    To back up or share all your calendars at once, you can choose File > Export > Calendar Archive to export them to a calendar archive (.icbu) file. This method exports all the calendars in the 'On My Mac' section of your calendar list, enabling you to back up your calendars, share them with other users, or import them to another device later.

    Note on CSV Format

    While the provided methods allow for exporting to .ics and .icbu formats, direct export to CSV is not mentioned. To convert the exported files to CSV, you may need to use additional software or services that can process the .ics or .icbu files and convert them to the CSV format.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can I export my iCloud Calendar to a CSV file?

    You can only export your calendar to an .ics file. To convert this to a CSV, you'll need to use a third-party tool or service that can translate the .ics file format to a CSV format.

    Can I export all my iCloud calendars at once?

    Yes, you can export all your calendars at once to a calendar archive (.icbu) file. This can be used for backing up all the calendars in the On My Mac section or sharing them with other users.

    What are the steps to export an individual iCloud calendar?

    To export an individual calendar, click on the calendar you wish to export, go to File > Export > Export, and then save the file. It will be saved as an .ics file.

    Can I use an exported iCloud calendar on another device?

    Yes, you can import your calendars to another device later using the .ics or .icbu files you have exported.

    Will the exported calendar file include all events?

    Yes, when you export a calendar, it will include all events from that calendar.


    In summary, while iCloud Calendars can be exported and backed up as .ics or .icbu files, and subsequently imported into iCloud or another device, the process does not natively support direct export to CSV format. CSV files serve as a versatile and simple means to store tabular data, including image, text, and audio inputs, which can be processed efficiently in large numbers and are easily created with common spreadsheet software. However, if you are looking to streamline your workflow and import your calendar data directly into a spreadsheet, consider using Sourcetable.
