    • Save the file to a known location
  2. Log into the GroupWise client as the other user (the new owner of the calendar)
  3. Right-click Calendar | Import Calendar
    • Provide the path to the exported .ics file from step 2
    • Provide the desired Calendar name and select Ok
  4. With this calendar in the side task bar of the GroupWise client right click it and share with whomever needs access to it.
