Hello,

I have my calendars converted to org files (using ical2orgpy), and as I
include them as agenda files, I have this nice view in org-agenda:

               9:10...... now - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
  AlanWork:   10:00-12:00 Event A -
  Chris:      10:00-11:00 Event B -
              10:00...... ----------------
              12:00...... ----------------
  AlanWork:   14:00-15:30 Event C -
              14:00...... ----------------
              16:00...... ----------------
              18:00...... ----------------
  Alan:       20:00-21:30 Event D -

Is there a way to piggy-back on all the work that org-agenda already did
to generate something like:

** 10:00 Event A
** 10:00 Event B
** 14:00 Event C
** 20:00 Event D

This would then be inserted in my daily journal file.

I guess the alternative is using org-element to extract the information
from the calendars in org format, but it seems to me org-agenda already
did all the hard work.

Do you have suggestions to do this?

Thanks,

Alan

I'd suggest to use function "org-agenda-write". You can export 
your agenda views to org files too! However, the formatting will 
be different. Probably something like:

* Event A
  SCHEDULED: <2020-12-03 Thu 10:00-12:00>
* Event B
  SCHEDULED: <2020-12-03 Thu 10:00-11:00>
* Event C
  SCHEDULED: <2020-12-03 Thu 14:00-15:30>
* Event D
  SCHEDULED: <2020-12-03 Thu 20:00-21:30>

I personally do this to generate separate org-file and then 
generate ics file based on that and upload this ics file through 
WebDAV to my calendar server.

@Alan,

I don't know if there is a way directly in Org to do what you want or
not, but for some reason my brain goes toward copying the text (either
directly from your agenda, or from Mikhail solution) into some other
buffer and then doing some macro or ELisp based post-processing.  But
I really don't know if that's the Right Thing to do or not.

I am also not someone who uses one of these "daily journal" workflows,
so I can't help but wonder how you link these daily notes back to the
underlying project that generated the event on the agenda in the first
place.  Becasue in my mind, I would jump from the agenda to the
underlying project or task and be making my notes in there directly.
Those linking considerations, in my mind anyway, would really dictate
the rest of the workflow.

Cheers,
TRS-80

This is most useful, thanks a lot! This should be more than sufficient
for my needs.

Best,

Alan

This is a very good point. My appointments do not currently have links
to the related projects (the "database of trust" is the calendar one,
which is caldav outside of emacs… maybe I should change that, but I need
to synchronize my calendar with my phone). So I currently add the links
manually. I'll have to think about this.

Best,

Alan
