Option 1
Remove them from csv file and then attempt the import.

Option 2
a. Create new schedules with the same schedule name as those in the mapping file in the Target site. These will just be placeholder schedules. Everything else about the schedule can be kept default (like Type, Priority, Execution, Frequency)
b. In the mapping file, copy and paste the source schedule name to the target schedule name field replacing their respective.
c. Attempt the import again 
d. After the import, the schedules can be removed from Tableau Server ("All Sites" > "Schedule")


Additional Information

These schedules were added from Tableau Server 2020.1.
