Adding multiple categories & tags
Now we can pick one category when using the aggregator, but in our calendar it's possible that a certain event belongs in more categories.
This means I still have to do this manually to complete the event. Also I miss the option to activate tags. For this the same as with the categories it's handy when we could fill out more then one tag.
Can you look at having the ability to include an event category per event from a icalendar or google calendar automatic import? Maybe a specific keyword in the description of the event or the event title within the source (outlook calendar for example) could trigger which category to assign to that event when importing?

I totally need this.
I'll point out that the documentation for Event Aggregator says:
"Select the category or categories that you’d like to add to events imported by this task, or feel free to skip the field entirely if you’d prefer to use only the imported categories."
And currently the event aggregator doesn't do anything with Tags. That would also be helpful, especially if it continues to limit the import to just one category.
Side Note: When I browsed through all the feature ideas for "Event Aggregator" looking for this suggestion, it did not show up. It was only when I started to add it (wondering why nobody else had already suggested it) that I found it listed in the "Suggested Ideas" list. Not sure if the tagging is wrong, or if I just overlooked it.

Selecting additional categories or tags is even more difficult to do manually with there being no link to actually take you to the event that you have just imported. There is a link to a [new venue] or [new organizer], but no link to the newly imported event itself

I need this feature. My organization is considering switching from Xylus import plugin for some other features. Without the ability to apply tags on import we will not be able to switch.
I've been asking for this feature for a year. It would cut my workload in half. Please allow us to have multiple tags at import! Thanks
PLEASE add the tags selector to event imports.
Yes please! Especially if you pay for the filter bar module. I have an important additional field to filter on that I can't apply to a scheduled import.
To expand this a little, it would also be great if you can select a different category for different events in one FB pull. For example: if I pull events from a venue that has music, dancing, and art (each event a separate category) we can classify each category in the one pull instead of having to re-pull each individual event to categorize it differently.
Need this badly!
yes This is really a must!

Currently, when you import a facebook event url, you can only select ONE category choice. We then have to re-open the event after and select other categories. Its a huge waste of time. If you are doing multiple events, you ofter forget to go back and fix it later.

I wish I could vote 100x for this one. This is neccessary to make importing from multiple sources useful.
