You can import 2013 Super Rugby Fixtures into Outlook or other calendar program (PC, Mac, iPhone etc) for that matter ...

This will also work for people in other timezones and display times in your local time :D

Simply head to 2013 Super Rugby Fixtures outlook iCal Import (http://twf.com.au/super-rugby-fixtures-outlook-import-2013.php), make your selections as to which fixtures you'd like, hit submit and it should automatically open up in your calendar program file (eg. Outlook) at which point you can save it or move it to your main calendar I think - otherwise, follow similar process to:

Open Outlook
Open your Calendar
Click the "File" menu
Click the "Import and Export..." menu
Select "Import from another program or file"
Click the "Next" button
Select Import an iCalendar
Click the "Next" button
Click the "Browse" button and browse to the file you saved in step 1.
Modify "options" if needed (leave default if unsure)
Click the "Next" button
Select the "Calendar" folder as the destination folder
Click the "Next button
Click the "Finish" button

This will also work for Gmail / Google Mail and Google Calendar, Apple, iPad, iPod, android devices also, although the import process is a little different...

E&OE

Tried it for my work outlook and it just keeps giving me

"vCalendar/iCalendar Import failed. The input file may be corrupt"

Will try it at home over the weekend I guess - see if I can get on my iPad/iPhone

Awesome, thanks Coach.

Anyone using Google Calendar can import the ics file by following these (http://www.pachena.net/Calendars/ImportingCalendars/ics_into_google/) instructions. Done in a few seconds.

Did you try just opening it without saving and going through an import procedure?

When I try that it comes up with

"Cannot import vCalendar file"

I click show help and

"This error can appear if you have attempted to save a recurring Lunar appointment in iCalendar format.

To avoid this error, set the appointment option to Gregorian instead of lunar"

in my experience it might be best to wait a few weeks, Coach normally comes out with an update to this and you end up with two entries for each game :lol:

Sounds an awful lot like you just volunteered to check all the fixtures/dates :)
