Export Calendars Pro Support FAQ

I bought the app from the Mac App Store, but the download from the Mac App Store fails and I only get an error message.

Please delete any downloaded demo version of Export Calendars Pro from your Mac, even if it is in the Downloads folder or on your desktop, and then restart your Mac. Sometimes the Mac App Store gets confused because it thinks the app is already installed.

Under macOS 14 Sonoma my calendars are not displayed

With Sonoma, Apple introduced a two-level access mode for third-party apps to calendars. Open System Preferences and under Privacy & Security > Calendars > Export Calendars Pro > Options, make sure "Full Calendar Access" is selected.

An update of Export Calendars Pro updated for macOS 14 Sonoma will support the new access modes directly in the app.

Does Export Calendars Pro work with BusyCal, Fantastical oder similar calendar apps?

Export Calendars Pro uses a dedicated application programming interface from Apple to access calendar data. Only calendars and event properties supported by Apple's Calendar app can be exported with the app. As a consequence, the app works with third-party calendar apps to some degree:

  • Events from any shared calendar source that Apple Calendar and the third-party calendar app do support (iCloud, macOS Server, Google Calendar, CalDAV) are accessible within Export Calendars Pro. Those calendars must be setup and enabled in Apple Calendar even if you do not use this app.
  • Events added to local calendars of the third-party calendar app (the "On My Mac" section in BusyCal, for example) are not accessible within Export Calendars Pro.
  • Custom/non-standard properties like BusyCal tags are not accessible within Export Calendars Pro.

When exporting events, for certain events the exported dates and times are wrong!

Most likely, the "wrong" time zone (almost always GMT/UTC) is tied to those events, presumably without your knowledge. Often, there is also no time zone set in the event. Apple Calendar assumes GMT then and passes this to Export Calendars Pro.

Solution: In your Export Calendars Pro export template, open the format menu for every date/time and set the time zone mode to "Use current time zone".

Hint: If you want to check or edit the time zone for an event in Apple's Calendar app, time zone support has to be enabled. Choose Advanced > Turn on time zone support in Calendar's preferences.
