Importing PST's to Group calendar (Attempt to migrate a Public Folder Calendar to a Team/MS Group)

I'm trying to migrate a Public Folder Calendar to a MS Group (Teams) Calendar and have got a bit stuck.

I thought the trick was to export the public folder as a PST and import it back to Azure and then remap it.

I'm following through https://learn.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/compliance/use-network-upload-to-import-pst-files?view=o365-worldwide
on how to import a PST into MS365. I've got as far as importing the PST.

I'm stuck at creating the mapping file.

The CSV has columns for FilePath, Name, Mailbox, IsArchive and TargetRootFolder I need to fill in.

Where do I obtain the FilePath for imported data?
Name appears to be the name of the pst I just imported so that's sorted.
Where do I obtain the Mailbox for the calendar?
What will the TargetRootFolder be?

For example's sake, lets' say I've exported a PST of a Public folder calender called 'staffcalendar.pst' and I want to migrate that to a Teams calendar in a team called 'Internal' in a channel called 'Meetings'
I can obtain the channel email address by clicking on the 3dots and then 'get email address'. Is that the email address I use or will there be a different one for the calendar?

Of course, if there's an easier way to do this then I would love to know.

Note that this is an MS 365 Business tenant and am a bit limited in what I can do with Azure.

    Hi @Dale

    I suppose it is possible with an Outlook client.
    Here is a link which may be helpful: How to import a calendar into an Office 365 Group Calendar.
