Event Import

The Event Import tool can be used for a one time import to your Amplify Website events module. 

Before Your Begin

There are many different calendaring programs available on the web, that all use a similar method of creating events. With our event importing process we do our best to match events up from your previous program to your Amplify Website. We will import events from the beginning of the current month and forward. The following information will be imported into our system.

  • Title
  • Description
  • Time & Date - We map the timezone of the .ics feed and convert it to your sites timezone during the import.
  • Recurrence - If your .ics feed uses standard recurrence rules, we are able to create native recurring events in Amplify.
  • Exception Events - If your recurring events have exceptions, the exception will still be imported into Amplify.
  • Location - Since many calendar programs use a basic text string for locations, we are unable to import the location into our location field. Instead, we add the location to the Content box in the event settings.

Import Steps

Within your Amplify Website dashboard, go to Admin > Site > More Menu link (top right) > Import

Import Type

Select Events from the module dropdown.

ICS Feed

Upload an .ics file or paste in a URL to your .ics feed.

Contact your calendar provider for instructions on how to get the .ics feed if you use a different calendar system.

Bulk Assign

You can add any number of Categories and Groups to your events using the bulk assign area. Please note that any category or group you assign in this section will be added to each event that is imported in your feed.

Under the bulk settings you will also choose whether to import your events in draft mode, or in published mode. Importing events in published mode will make them immediately available on your website.


Once you have verified all of your selections, click Import.
