Hello, I have a list of tasks due on certain dates to cover a year.  Am I able to upload this data to the Sharepoint calendar for each of the respective due dates?  Possibly there is a "canned" functionality in sharepoint for this?

fyi:  i do not work in IT and have limited programming experience.  

thank you

Is your current task list stored in SharePoint?  If so just switch the view to Datasheet view and cut and paste your entries across the two.

there is also a freeware software , but if you are novice with using IT stuff then I wouldn't recommend it

I would be looking for something where I can upload say 200 records with due dates and a description and upload directly into the calender somehow and not by copy and paste

i do not understand, what do you mean by automation,  based on your current skill level, i think best would be that every time you would update sharepoint list from excel via copy and paste.

if you mean automation like directly, with no human intervention then that is too advanced , i am not saying it is not possible, it is but require certain knowledge Windows Server FCI (File Classification Infrastructure)
