Import your NUD calendars to iCal.
Version: 1.01Back in the day, Now Up-to-Date (NUD) was the undisputed champion of calendar sharing for Mac users. We know, we're the original developers. But it's getting a little long in the tooth, and doesn't sync with the iPhone, so many NUD users are migrating to iCal. But how do you transfer all those events in NUD to iCal?
Operating System: Mac OS X
NUD to iCal is a free utility that copies events from Now Up-to-Date to iCal. It will create a new calendar in iCal for each category in NUD and copy all events to it.
Launch NUD to iCal and select the following options:
· Source calendar - You may copy events from all calendars (categories) in NUD, or a single calendar.
· Date - All events on or after the date specified will be copied to iCal.
It is recommended that you set a short date range, like one year, and NOT import 10+ years of events from NUD to iCal, as it will take a long time (many hours) to process and iCal will run very slowly if you add that many events to it.
When you click Start, a new calendar will be created in iCal for each source calendar (category) in NUD, and all events that occur after the date specified will be copied to iCal. The progress will be displayed on the bottom of the window while the events are being imported.
Processing can take a while depending on the size of your calendar. Make sure you allow plenty of time for processing to complete and do not use or quit NUD or iCal while NUD to iCal is running. You may click the Stop button at any time to stop processing.
An alert will be displayed once processing is complete, informing you how many events were imported and to reconfigure the repeating events in iCal.
Note: NUD stores repeating events as a series of individual events, whereas iCal stores repeating events as a single event with a recurrence rule.
Therefore, repeating events in NUD are not copied to iCal. Instead, only the first occurrence of a repeating event in NUD is copied to iCal and the word "[REPEATING]" is appended to the event title so you can easily find these events in iCal and reconfigure the repeat interval.
You may search for the repeating events in iCal by entering "repeating" in the search field in the upper-right hand corner of iCal.
The list with the matching events will be displayed on the bottom of the window.
You may then double-click each one, and reconfigure the repeat interval and edit the event title, as appropriate.
