Each event is doubled in Outlook for Mac

No Medication 6 months ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 5 months ago 3

Environment:
Running Outlook for Mac

Ver: 16.56

New Outlook UI

On Mac OS Monterey 12.0.1


Issue: 
When I drag the .ics file into the Holidays folder under My calendars, each event is doubled.  For example, on Jan 3, 2022, there are two listings for 1st of Sh'vat, 5782, and Rosh Chodesh Sh'vat.  This doubling is applied to every event.  Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

Thanks,
David

We recommend you first follow the aforementioned instructions to first remove all copies of Hebcal events from your calendars. The instructions you originally used to import Hebcal events were our previous Outlook Mac 2011 instructions. Outlook for Mac 2011 did not support iCalendar subscriptions and cloud sync, so it required downloading a copy of events from Hebcal.com and manually managing them on your desktop.

Starting with Outlook for Mac 2016, Microsoft now recommends that you sync your account to the Microsoft Cloud. “Available for Google, Yahoo, iCloud, and IMAP accounts in Outlook for Mac, this allows you to enjoy many of the best features of Mail and Calendar and Outlook for Mac.”

We recently published detailed instructions that show how to subscribe to Hebcal events in modern versions of Outlook for Mac using the cloud sync feature with Outlook Web (Outlook.com) account. Please follow these instructions to restore the Hebcal events to your desktop:

Thanks for the response, but how does this doesn’t solve the problem of duplicates? I’ve read both of these articles before and they seem designed to remove all the Hebcal events from the Outlook calendar. I want one listing for each event, not two. What would you suggest to fix that problem?
