You can import events from another web-based calendar into your CQ WCM calendars using the polling importer. You can import either a public calendar or a private calendar. If you import a private calendar, you need the private ics URL. Calendar URLs are generally available within a calendar's settings. Check the documentation for your calendar application for more information.
You need to enter at least one event into the calendar before you can import events from other calendars. If all of your events come from other calendars, work around this issue by creating a dummy event, importing your events from the other calendar, and then deleting the dummy event.
