Importer for Calendar
For Mac

Turns spreadsheet data into Calendar events.

1.3.1 (2024-06-18)
macOS 13 Ventura or newer

Import Excel/CSV into iCal/Apple/Mac Calendar or convert to .ics file

The Mac app Importer for Calendar lets you convert spreadsheet data into calendar events. You can add the events directly to Apple Calendar or save them as .ics files to import them into other calendar apps.

Main features

Importer for Calendar comes with many thoughtful features. You simply copy your data in your spreadsheet to the clipboard and then paste it into Importer for Calendar. You can save field assignments for recurring imports, so you don't have to do the assignment from scratch each time. You can preview the conversion result before importing, using a list view or a detailed per-event preview. To work with third-party calendars like Fantastical or BusyCal, you can easily save the converted events as .ics file.

The following features set the app apart from alternatives:

  • Supports the import of events with a specified duration instead of a defined end time.
  • Supports a broad range of date and time formats.
  • Allows flexible import from any table structure. There is no need to provide an import file in a predefined rigid structure.
  • Time zone support, with individual time zones for start and end dates.
  • Privacy: Conversion and import of your data takes place completely locally on your Mac.
  • Genuine, modern Mac app, not an iOS application ported to the Mac.


There's not much to say here: Importer for Calendar doesn't collect any data. All conversion takes place locally on your Mac - a clear advantage over online converters where you never know what happens to your data. If it matters, the developer is from Germany.

Pricing & Download

In a free basic mode, Importer for Calendar limits event titles to a length of 12 characters, among other things. This allows you to download the app for free and play with it to get a feel for whether it might be of use to you. Full functionality can be activated with an inexpensive one-time purchase.
