Did you know? I had not until now. You can import iCal calendar onto your project or resource calendars and get the entries added as exceptions. Cool, isn’t it?
For those of you, like me, not knowing this functionality until now, here is how to proceed:
- You locate the iCal calendar you want to import(*) to your Merlin project.
- Open your Merlin project, select the top most entry in the outline, switch to the ‘Working Time’ tab on the inspector, click onto the gear symbol and call ‘Import…’.
- Make sure that the option ‘Only Merge Exceptions’ is set. Select the ics calendar file and press ‘Import’.
- Check the exceptions in Merlin’s calendar…
Easy, isn’t it? 🙂

*) The ‘US Holiday Calendar 1.0’ was supplied by Apple. It is a calendar subscription. For the purposes of this post, I have exported it from iCal as an ics file to my desktop.
