Calendar Custom commands - Export Event is not properly exporting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am using  OOTB Calendar list and want to export the Events from Export Event button on Custom Command tab. It exports the data into .ics file but if there are any hyperlinks or HTML tags existing in the list data, it is not exporting the details properly.

    What is the work around for this?

    Regards,

    Kiran

  • Hi,

    Based on your description, my understanding is that hyperlinks or HTML tags are not working when export the Events from calendar into .ics file. 

    I can't find Export Event button on Custom Command tab in my SharePoint 2010, how do you export the Events from calendar into .ics file.

    I have done a test in my SharePoint 2010:

    Go to an calendar list->  Connect to outlook, refer to the following screenshot:

    The hyperlinks in the outlook is clickable, if I misunderstanding the issue, please offer a screenshot about your issue, I will better help you.

  • I do not see an answer for this yet and have the same issue.  We have SharePoint 2013 and if you open a Calendar Event it has a Custom Command tab in the ribbon where you can export the event.  However, when using this command, information in the description includes extra characters.  See attached screen print.  The first is how the event looks in Sharepoint.  The second screenprint is the outcome of using the Export Event in Custom Commands which will allow you to save to outlook calendarSharePoint View of Event and Description

    Export Event with extra characters
