iCal (.ics) file format question: DTSTAMP vs CREATED

I’m trying to set up my CMS to create .ics files of our org.'s future events.

One question: What’s the purpose of DTSTAMP, and how does it differ from CREATED?

Here’s the documentation:


What the heck is a calendar store? Are these engineers saying that DTSTAMP is a property employed by the event hosts, and CREATED is a property employed by the end-user (i.e., to specify when the app on her local machine first stored the event information on her hard drive)?

Not sure why this is a difficult question, but here you go.

I’m sure your assistance is going to help him out in his problem.

How can you tell?

Especially since “calendar store” is used in a very specific context here and a google search for calendar store is not helpful.

For anyone curious, a calendar store is (from here):

  A data store of a calendar service.  A calendar service may have
  several calendar stores, and each store may contain several
  calendars, as well as properties and components outside of those

That is one of my many superpowers.

Probably has something to do with the calendar store.
