The following procedure will allow you to transfer all of your existing appointments from your Sun Calendar to the Zimbra Calendar:
Log into RULink using your NetID (e.g., your RCI account)
Click on Calendar
Click on Import/Export
In the EXPORT section, it gives you the choice of selecting ALL appointments, or a date range. You can select whatever you prefer but we suggest limiting the number of past appointments unless there is a reason why you need to keep them.
Either leave it at the default ALL or select start and end dates
Push the EXPORT button
Select the button that says Save File
Push the OK button
It will save a file called export.ics
We recommend storing this file on your Desktop so it's easy to find.
Go to the website https://secure.sas.rutgers.edu/apps/calconvert/
Log in with your NetID (e.g., your RCI account)
Once you have logged in, it will ask you for the file created above
Push the Browse button and select that file
Then push the Submit Query button
When the conversion is complete you'll be prompted to download the newly converted file. It will be named as follows: your-user-name.ics
Click on the PREFERENCES tab
Click on IMPORT / EXPORT
Click on the CALENDAR button
Click on the BROWSE button for DESTINATION
Click on the NEW button to Create a new calendar, it can be renamed later if needed
Click on the BROWSE button for FILE and find the file created above (NetID.ics)
Now you have your New Calendar selected, and the new file Your-NetID.ics
Push the IMPORT button in the lower right
You should now be able to click on the Calendar tab at the top, select the name of the calendar you imported your appointments into on the left and see all of the RULink appointments in Zimbra.
