Exporting your Daylite Calendar to Apple iCal

You can export your Daylite calendar as an .ics file which can then be imported into the Apple Calendar application. This is useful, for example, when you wish to have your Daylite calendar for a brief period (or the complete calendar) displayed in your Apple Calendar for viewing.

To export calendar to Apple Calendar

  • Choose File > Export > Export Calendar to Apple iCal. Daylite opens the “Export to Apple iCal File Format” window.
  • To export the entire calendar, select All Dates. Otherwise, simply specify the start and end date.
  • The default export location for your calendar is the desktop. To specify a different location from the desktop, click Browse, navigate to the location, and click Open.
  • If you wish, you can export each appointment category in Daylite as a separate calendar. To do this, select the “Export each category as a separate calendar” checkbox.
  • Click Export.

Daylite exports your calendar according to the specifications selected and saves it in the chosen location. If you have exported each category as a separate calendar, the individual calendars of each category are saved as separate Apple Calendar files.

When you open the Apple Calendar file by double-clicking, you can choose a destination calendar in Apple Calendar where you want to view the appointments.

If you would like to match the Daylite category name, select New Calendar. If you have chosen not to export each category as a separate calendar, the calendar you exported from Daylite is saved as a single Apple Calendar file (this is named "Daylite Calendar.ics" by default). Open it by double-clicking and choose a destination calendar in Apple Calendar to view your appointments.
