Need required information for iCalendar files
I'm working on writing my own iCalendar feed for use with localendar. I've tested importing the feed into outlook and into iCalendar validators and it works fine. When I try to import into localendar it says it's not valid. I can't find any documentation on what localendar is requiring. I've tried several versions, but here is a recent one.

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
BEGIN:VEVENT
DTEND:20140630T130035Z
DTSTART:20140630T120035Z
PRIORITY:1
SEQUENCE:0
STATUS:Confirmed
UID:5c9919d3-41aa-4627-b8ec-a5434d7f7d6b
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

Re: Need required information for iCalendar files
The lack of an event title (SUMMARY) or description (DESCRIPTION) are 2 obvious omissions. It's perhaps easier if you just compare against an existing localendar event (you can look at your own calendar export for an example)

BEGIN:VEVENT
DTSTAMP:20140701T202242Z
DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20090115T173000
DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20090115T204500
SUMMARY:St John / Ucon game
DESCRIPTION:Simplest thing would be for you to meet me at the arena
UID:20190619T135754Z-1@ELSIE-CT3
END:VEVENT

Re: Need required information for iCalendar files
I'm getting an error that says Subject not found in header

Here is a snippet of my header and the first event:

What do you think the issue is? Isn't subject == SUMMARY?

Re: Need required information for iCalendar files
That error is unrelated to anything you did - it's something on our side caused by an out-of-date file. That should be corrected as of this am.
