Mapping attributes from and ICS feed, and really any source

    Is there a way to edit the way the attributes are mapped during an import? I am importing this ICS, ( https://novoconnect.ncf.edu/events.ics ) but the organizer is set as X-HOST. Alas, that doesn’t translate into the organizer when the import is done.

    Seems like a great reason to have a filter before the request is sent to the aggregator api. Shall I put this in feature request?

    If this is impossible, what does the organizer field have to be named in the ICS file in order for it to be imported correctly? Where can I find the attributes map? I can use the api from this company to create an ICS that will be correct for the aggregator import. That way I can automate it.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. I will try to help with your questions.

    There is not a way to change the mapping that I’m aware of. You can certainly suggest this as a feature on our User Voice Forum.

    The organizer would be added to the ics file as per the specifications outlined here: https://www.kanzaki.com/docs/ical/organizer.html

    Hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any additional questions about this.

    Thanks,
    Sky
