Does anyone know of a way to export meeting data from Meeting Maker and import it into Kerio?

Meeting Maker will output to a .dat file from the server or a delimited .txt file from the client. Any way to get that into Kerio automagically? Thanks.

I know of no existing tools to do so. Being familiar with the MM db format, it would be *possible* to export with an advanced knowledge of Perl or similar, but it'd be one heck of a chore.

We use MM 8.6.2 and I can export my appointments to an .ics file.

You should be able to import that ics file with a client such as iCal or Outlook and have it fill your account on KMS.

Of course I have to be using 8.5.3 which only supports export to text and html. The only way I know of to get the 8.6.2 client is to pay PeopleCube gobs of money which is what I was hoping to avoid in the first place. Guess I am out of luck.

Since MM can sync with a Palm and a Palm can sync with iCal, is that a possibility? Install the Palm software and both the MM and iCal conduits, and off you… could work!

Syncing 40+ people to Palm then Outlook? Yikes. I'm not all that sure that MM 8.5.3 can sync to Palm anyway.

We have decided to just book an hour of everyone's time this Friday were everyone will print out there MM calendar and then manually renter them into Outlook/Entourage/Kerio. Yes, it is a total kludge and an automated solution would be more elegant but sometimes the brute force manual method is easiest. Besides with the economy such that it is people don't have as many meetings right now anyway.

We used a little Applescript we found at http://www.wrightthisway.com/Downloads.html
to take the data that you can save out of Meeting Maker and import it into iCal. Then we used the Kerio Sync connector to sync the data from iCal to Kerio.

We basically did it on a couple computers with a couple IT folks doing all the exporting/importing/syncing. We logged into the users Meeting Maker account and exported a certain date range of events then used the AppleScript to import it into iCal then we setup the Kerio Sync connector with the end users credentials and did a sync to get it to generate the default Calendar calendar in iCal. Then we exported the imported MMCalendar out of iCal and imported it back into iCal placing the events in the Calendar calendar. Then did a final sync with the Kerio Sync connector to push the events up to Kerio. Recurring events typically were problematic and we told the users to verify their data as we weren't responsible if everything wasn't there. It did a pretty good job. Now repeat that 200 or so more times and we were finished. Very Happy

I hope that helps.
Mike
