Edited

This feature is not available on Android yet 🤖


Structured can import your calendars from the Apple Calendar app. The imported events will then be displayed as tasks in your Structured timeline and can be checked off, just like tasks created in Structured.


Compatible Calendar Apps

You can import events from any calendar app that is compatible with the Apple Calendar app into Structured. For example, Google Calendar, Outlook, Microsoft Exchange, yahoo!, AOL, and more can be imported.


Import Calendar

To import your calendar events into Structured, in the first step, your calendar must first be added to your Apple Calendar app.

If you are using the Apple Calendar or added a calendar to your Apple Calendar already, you can skip the following instructions and continue with the second step, the Import Your Calendar Into Structured section below.

1. Step: Add Calendar To Your Account

To import your calendar events into Structured, your calendar must first be added to your Apple Calendar app. If you are using the Apple Calendar or added a calendar to your Apple Calendar already, you can skip the following steps and continue with the Import Your Calendar Into Structured section below.

If the calendar events you want to import into Structured are not displayed in the Apple Calendar on your device, follow these steps:

  1. Open the ⚙️ Settings App on your device

  2. Scroll down, tap Calendar and then Accounts

  3. Tap Add Account, select your provider, and enter your credentials

  4. If your calendar now shows up in your Apple Calendar app, the calendar is ready to be imported into Structured.

2. Step: Import Your Calendar Into Structured

  1. Go to your ⚙️ Structured Settings, and select Calendars

  2. Here, you need to tap on Allow Access.

  3. You will be sent to your device's general Settings app, where you can allow Full Access to your calendar for Structured. Please note that Add Events Only permissions are not enough, and you will need to allow Full Access for Structured to sync your events.

  4. Go to your ⚙️ Structured Settings again, and select Calendars

  5. Now, you can select the calendars you want to import into Structured.

All events of the selected calendars will automatically appear in your timeline and be updated regularly, the colors of the calendar will be taken from your original calendar.

Caution! If you use Structured on several devices, ensure to enable the import of your calendars on one device only, preferably the one you are using Structured most frequently on. Afterward, your imported calendar events and tasks will be synced automatically with your other devices via iCloud.


Export Tasks

Tasks created in Structured cannot be exported into other apps. Currently, synchronization of tasks is only possible in one direction. To learn more, check out: Can I Export My Tasks?

Some calendar apps, although compatible with Structured, have certain restrictions when they are being imported:

  • Google: As a default, some shared Google calendars are not synced with apps.

  • Microsoft Exchange: It is recommended that Microsoft Exchange calendars are only enabled on one device at a time.

  • Business accounts: Please note that some business accounts are not available in apps and therefore cannot be imported into Structured.
