I am moving a client to Exchange Online. They use Outlook on Mac and have a calendar under "on this computer".

I want to copy all the entries from the local calendar into the O365 calendar. On windows its simple to export the calendar then import it back into the correct calendar but I cant work out howe to do it on Outlook for Mac.

I have exported the calendar to a .olm file but I cant import it into the correct calendar.

I have also seleted to view the calendar in list view and tried to select all and drag items into the new calendar but it wont let me.

Any ideas?

Can you right click on the calendar and see if there is a "Copy" option? If so, does it pop up a box allowing you to select where to copy to? That's what should happen, the type in "Inbox" or "calendar" and you should see the exchange account.
