Under
6. Under "Date Range", select "Whole calendar".  Under "Detail", choose "Full Details".  Check "Include detais of items marked private".  Hit "OK".

Part B: Import into MPSConnect

Before you import your calendar into MPSConnect, decide which MPSCalendar you will be importing your data into.  Depending on how your keep your calendars organized, you may want to import into your primary MPSConnect calendar (username@mpsaz.org), import into another existing calendar, or create a new calendar.  If you need help creating a calendar, see the help topic on Calendar creation.

Browse your computer to locate and select the iCal (*.ics) file created by Outlook.  Choose which MPSConnect calendar you will import this calendar into, and click
