An approved time off booking can be transferred directly from Web TimeSheet to Outlook Calendar. However,if an approved TimeOff is modified and re-imported to Outlook , a duplicate entry gets created for the same day.
Steps to export TimeOff from the Web TimeSheet to MS Outlook 2007.
Now, if an approved TimeOff which has already been imported to Outlook gets edited,and then the above steps are performed, it duplicates the rows i.e.when exported, the edited TimeOff will be added to the already existing one in Outlook. This means for the same date, two TimeOff's will appear.
iCal and .vcs formats are defacto standard file formats. The way outlook is designed to handle these formats is beyond our control. So, removing the old entries prior to adding the new entries is the only solution. However, we can create a calendar that is meant to contain these .vcs imports so that the entries can be removed and replaced easily.
