New user - do I need ICS importer or CSV Importer?

Hi. Just bought EventOn and looking forward to get started. I’ve been looking for a wp-plugin that would first and foremost allow me to rely on automatically importing events from my iCal.

However, do I need the “ICS importer” or the “CSV Importer” for that?

      ICS importer i would think

      ICS is a global format for calendar files widely being utilized by various calendar and email programs including Google Calendar, Apple iCal, and Microsoft Outlook. These files enable users to share and publish information directly from their calendars over email or via uploading it to the world wide web.

      csv is just that it aloows you to upload a lot of events from a .csv file ONLY

      http://www.myeventon.com/addons/ics-importer/ We have not mention anywhere this addon would import using a url. I dont know where you got that impression 🙂 this is however a feature we fancy for future 🙂

      But yea you would have to download the iCAL file from your calendar and then import. Hope this will work out for you for now 🙂
