Export Google Calendar to CSV
There are innumerable ways of utilizing your Google Calendar. You can do much more than noting down events, venue, adding guests, start and end times. You can view your google calendar in other formats, one of them being csv.
What Is CSV
A CSV or comma separated values file stores your calendar or any spreadsheet information in a plain text format by using commas to separate the data. These are also referred to as Comma Delimited or Character Separated Values and instead of commas, may use semicolons to keep the data separate.
A CSV file contains only one sheet per file and you can’t save a column, row, or cell in it. Instead, the individual rows appear in a new line while the comma separates the data in each row.

Benefits of Exporting Google Calendar to CSV
Acts as an intermediary
The csv file format makes it easier to use across different applications. When complex and high volume of data is involved, you can use the csv file as an intermediary to convert the complex data and then import it to some other application for easier use. Thus, you can convert your calendar information to a csv file for viewing your calendar events.
Clear differentiation between texts and numerals
CSV files do not manipulate the data entered and keep the texts clearly differentiated from the numeric data.
Makes data human-readable.
When you convert a calendar file to a csv file, the data becomes human-readable and can be viewed on an excel file or a text editor like Notepad.
As the CSV files are in a plain text format, it becomes much faster to import them and hence, saves your time. Moreover, as they take up less memory, your computer is not unnecessarily burdened.
