  • 1.  Add to Calendar

    When utilizing the "add to calendar" data tag in an event email, is there any way to control what information gets passed to the calendar?

    We have a Cvent/Webex integration and it would be nice to have the Webex link added to the calendar too -- not just date and time.

    Following this thread. It would also be good to see that add to calendars in emails give the same options as on the event website for Google, Apple Mail, Outlook, etc instead of just an .ics file.

    Hi Donna,

    Sure thing. As long as your Add to Calendar widgets are placed behind registration, you can use either the Admission Item Registrant Data box or the Session Registrant Data box to include all sorts of good info, like your Zoom/WebEx details, physical location details, etc. On most devices, the links show up as hyperlinked in the calendar adds. If you want to offer this type of info to non-registrants, just use the Internal Note under Event Information or the custom option within the site designer wherever you place the Add to Calendar widget.
