  • 1.  Add to Calendar option in emails?

    Posted 05-02-2022 04:15
    We have "Add to Calendar" in our header, but I can't figure out how to get the "add to calendar" into the event emails.
    I've followed the instructions on the knowledge base and it's still coming out wonky.

    Is it possible to use the "Add to Calendar" button that already exists somewhere in our event, in the email?  

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated.  The event is in 10 days and this is holding up a big email going out.

    Thank you!

    I use the "add to calendar link" data tag in my emails.

    Have you thought about adding a custom link button?  Then change the text on the button to "add to calendar".  For the link, you'll need to upload a calendar invite .ics (from MS Outlook) file to the Library under Documents (Admin section).  Once uploaded, click on the newly created calendar hold icon to get its full file address [see screenshot].  Then go back to your email designer and enter that as the link. 

    Admin>Libraries>Document Library>your folder(or create one)>Add file 
    Once uploaded: click on icon and scroll to bottom for Reference Link

    They've also added the session Add to Calendar link to the emails if you use the My Agenda widget in your confirmation emails. There's one link per session if you want to allow folks to download those.
