Importing an ICS Attachment to the non-Default Outlook Calendar

Posted by Russell Wright on February 13, 2019

Here’s a quick post on how to handle an ICS attachment (iCalendar or vCalendar file) when you have multiple O365 (or Exchange) accounts in the Outlook desktop application.

I have two Outlook accounts:  Business and Personal.  I am using Outlook (2016 I think, version 1808) to manage both calendars.  When an ICS file comes in on my personal (non-default) account as an attachment I’d like to add the contents to my personal calendar.  If I double-click and open it and then save, it will save to the default (business) calendar.  There’s a simple way to handle this problem.

Make sure you have your non-default calendar displayed in the calendar view.  Simply click and drag and drop the attachment to the non-default calendar and BOOM!  You’re all done.  Simple drag-and-drop works fine.
