    Hello, I am trying to organise my calendar. I get emailed event invites to my email, which I guess automatically makes them go into the Gmail calendar. I wish to move different events to different calendars, that way I can organise different events by different colours easily. However, it gives me no option to move my events to iCloud calendars which is what I want to do. I thought okay thats fine, I'll just make new calendars on my Gmail account, but when I try to move the event to those calendars they are greyed out (as pictured). Anyone able to help me get this working?

    Thanks

    I think the problem is those are not normal, editable calendars, but are rather data imports from outside sources that display as a calendar entry. The birthday calendar gets imports from Contacts and the holiday calendars usually from a web link.

    Sorry, just a bit confused, could you explain a bit more? And is there anything I can do to fix that?

    Sure... if you added a new calendar and called it "Work Calendar" for example, that is a normal calendar intended for you to add and remove items from.

    But there are other calendars that are not intended to have items added or removed. They cannot be edited at all. For example, you can go here and download then add a "moon" calendar that shows the phases of the moon. That calendar pulls its data from the server (Apple in this case) and just displays it on the calendar and cannot be edited. It is just pulling in outside data and displaying it on the calendar.

    The birthday calendar works similarly. It pulls in the birthdays from your contacts and displays them in the calendar. You cannot directly edit the birthday calendar since it just pulls in data from contacts.
