To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 8 months agoI am having issues with this. I am doing everything you say here to merge, but I get an error box saying that the calendar I want to merge is currently open and being used. I can't get passed that box. Can you provide some info as to what I am doing wrong? Thanks. David

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoI have imported my own calendar and instead of choosing Do not import duplicates I've chosen replace Duplicates with imported items. Now all my events appear as a copy and I can't amend any of the events as it says that I'm not an organiser!! Can you please help how can I undo it and return my calendar the way it was .... it seems that it merged the existing events and i don't have any rights to amend it although I have originally created it.
