import appointments to the outlook calendar from csv RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,
    We have an excel spreadsheet with the appointments.I have EWS installed on my Exchange Server 2010. Is there anyway to import the appointments to the Outlook non-default calendar using powershell.

    I have followed this http://blogs.msdn.com/b/emeamsgdev/archive/2012/02/13/exchange-2007-2010-powershell-import-calendar-items-from-csv-file.aspx and I can successfully import it to the default calendar.

    Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

  • Hello,

    You may consider automating Outlook and adding required Calendar items programmatically. For more information please visit the following pages where you can find a sample source code:

    This forum is for Developer discussions and questions involving Microsoft Outlook, your requirement is more related with powershell in EWS, I will move this thread to the more related forum.

  • You will need to replace the following section

    try {
    	$CalendarFolder = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.CalendarFolder]::Bind($service, [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WellKnownFolderName]::Calendar);
    } catch {

    with something like this

    function Get-FolderFromPath{
    	param (
    			[Parameter(Position=0, Mandatory=$true)] [string]$FolderPath,
    			[Parameter(Position=1, Mandatory=$true)] [string]$MailboxName,
    			[Parameter(Position=2, Mandatory=$true)] [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService]$service,
    			[Parameter(Position=3, Mandatory=$false)] [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.PropertySet]$PropertySet
    		## Find and Bind to Folder based on Path  
    		#Define the path to search should be seperated with \  
    		#Bind to the MSGFolder Root  
    		$folderid = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderId([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WellKnownFolderName]::MsgFolderRoot,$MailboxName)   
    		$tfTargetFolder = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.Folder]::Bind($service,$folderid)  
    		#Split the Search path into an array  
    		$fldArray = $FolderPath.Split("\") 
    		 #Loop through the Split Array and do a Search for each level of folder 
    		for ($lint = 1; $lint -lt $fldArray.Length; $lint++) { 
    	        #Perform search based on the displayname of each folder level 
    	        $fvFolderView = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderView(1) 
    				$fvFolderView.PropertySet = $PropertySet
    	        $SfSearchFilter = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.SearchFilter+IsEqualTo([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderSchema]::DisplayName,$fldArray[$lint]) 
    	        $findFolderResults = $service.FindFolders($tfTargetFolder.Id,$SfSearchFilter,$fvFolderView) 
    	        if ($findFolderResults.TotalCount -gt 0){ 
    	            foreach($folder in $findFolderResults.Folders){ 
    	                $tfTargetFolder = $folder                
    	           # Write-host ("Error Folder Not Found check path and try again")  
    	            $tfTargetFolder = $null  
    		if($tfTargetFolder -ne $null){
    			return [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.Folder]$tfTargetFolder
    			throw ("Folder Not found")
    $PathToFolder = "\Calendar\Folder1"
    try {
    	$CalendarFolder = Get-FolderFromPath -FolderPath $PathToFolder -MailboxName $EmailAddress -service $service
    } catch {

    Where $PathToFolder = "\Calendar\Folder1"

    Is the path to the folder you want to access it if you want this to be a variable the pass it in another parameter from the script
