This page is meant to be used by calendar developers. To add minor comments/feedback, please use the discussion page. More extensive discussion should be taken the newsgroup.

Basic overview

This page covers features of importing and exporting events and tasks in Comma Separated Value format. This very basic format is human readable and understood by nearly all programs.

Development goals

Recommended date format is YYYY-MM-DD with a four digit year at the beginning. Time format should be HH:MM:SS with 24-hour values. Calendar will also understand dates and times in the locale scheme of the operating system but data format must not change within a file. The universal indicators AM, a.m., PM and p.m. are always recognized.
