Can i migrate all (old) events in a team calendar, to a certain (new) event type?

Previously, we had dedicated a team calendar to keep an overview of the vacation of everyone. The new team calendar has support for this using the new event types ('Leave').

I'd like to migrate all the old events in the calendar (after the upgrade, their event type has become 'Event', which I can't change using the edit option), to the new event type ('Leave').

How can I do this?

You can try the following workaround solution:

  1. export the calender to ical file.
  2. open the ical file with a test editor
  3. Search the related event then look for the string: "X-CONFLUENCE-SUBCALENDAR-TYPE:other"
  4. Change the string to : "X-CONFLUENCE-SUBCALENDAR-TYPE:leaves"
  5. Save the change then import the ical file to a new calender and check whether it helps.

Thank you Yilin MO for the help.

It helped us a lot.
