3 - Save the exported .ics file to your local machine or device of your choosing

4 - Proceed to the Step 2

Step 2: Import the .ics files in your new Confluence

1 - On your Destination Confluence Cloud navigate to the Calendars section

2 - Use the + Add Calendar dropdown menu to select the option Import Calendar

2 - After selecting the .ics file you will need to name the Calendar and link it to an existing space, you can also set a description for the calendar

3 - Click Import to conclude the process


There is also an open feature request to make easier to bulk export the whole Team Calendars data at once here:
