Ever since I've been at the place I work, the method that has been used to share calendar items has been for the person that manages the calendar to send out appointment invites to everyone. This is really annoying for everyone because at the beginning of the school year (it's a school that I work at) there are literally a couple hundred invites sent out at once (all of the events for the coming year) and they have to be manually accepted. I've been scratching my head trying to figure out an EASY way to get all of those appointments into peoples' individual calendars. I can create a .ics file that contains everything but there is no EASY way to import it. I realize it can be done by going to File > Import and Export... but I know that at least half of my users would be unwilling or unable to do it and I would end up doing it for them - I'm trying to avoid that while still making it convenient for them.
So my question is: Is there a way to EASILY bulk import calendar items? A script or something?
