EvieSays Calendar Imports

Overview of the Process

EvieSays can take an export of events and venues from your current calendar software and import that data into your EvieSays Calendar. This is a potentially-useful option for customers migrating from another calendar service.

Currently, imports are handled as part of the new client onboarding process. Please contact sales for information.

Requirements

Compatible Data Formats

We can import data in CSV (comma-delimited) plain text format, with each required field (see below) occupying a column. The column order does not matter. Alternatively, we can accept a JSON-format plain text file. Please contact sales for information about other import options.

Required Properties

Events within the EvieSays system must occur at a specific location (a complete address is required), at one or more specific times (date and time). A complete list of required and optional properties for both events and venues is listed below. Events and Venues without the minimum fields are unable to be imported into EvieSays.
