Does Org Mode have a way to identify that multiple events refer to the
same event?  It would be wonderful, for those of us with messy org files
(multiple overlapping incoming data sources), if Org Mode had a way to
to relate multiple events in a way that sums the details between events.

For example, assuming I had two org files, customer.org and calendar.org
(calendar.org being some form of exported ical-file):

  ~/customer.org:

    * TODO Meeting with Pete
      :PROPERTIES:
      :See: [[file:calendar.org:*Meet%20Pete][Meet Pete]]
      :END:

  ~/calendar.org:

    * Meet Pete
      SCHEDULED: <2013-04-19 Fri 09:30-10:00>

When exported into an agenda, the consolidated org agenda would read:

    Friday   19 April 2013
      customer:  09:00-09:30 Scheduled:  TODO Meeting with Pete

Are these wild dreams just dreams, or does Org Mode support such lovely
magic?

The problem is: what would RET do on this agenda line?  Go to which
entry?  You can always put some hacks in `org-agenda-finalize-hook'
but it's easier to try to keep your Org files clean ;)

Hi Bastien, thanks for the prompt reply.

I would assume that RET would jump to the source item (the one with the
"See also" property).  It's unfortunately difficult for me to keep my
source files clean: my schedule is composed of three different and
unrelated sources, which vary daily.  I export those sources to three
different org files and combine those with my personal schedule to
figure out what needs to be done every day.

Since the exported sources get overwritten, I have to copy each event
into my own (clean) org file and then unschedule the exported one, to
keep the agenda clean.  It's... silly, but it mostly works.

If anybody wants a spreadsheet-to-org-file exporter, just let me
know. :)

If I were using this, I would forget to mark any "See also", or else I
would do it, and forget I had already done so, and end up marking _both_
of them "See also". :)

Knowing that you have an entry elsewhere for this person or that event,
might give you the opportunity to do some kind of clever tricks with
links...
