    As we have grasped the pivot to virtual our organization is hosting more events that span 2 consecutive days, 2 hours per day. 

    I am excited the add to calendar is now a website widget, in addition to being an email data tag.  The problem is that I have been unable to use it to block off 2 hours each day on 2 consecutive days.  It wants to block off the entire time from start on Day 1 to End on Day 2. 

    Is there a work around or are there plans in place to address this?

    I cant be the only one running into this or maybe the only one that doesn't know the work around. 

    Serving together,

    I have a very similar need for a once per week session that will occur for 6 weeks at the same time. The only option I can find is to add each session individually which isn't exactly what I am looking for. I agree that this would be a great enhancement for our attendees.

    Hi Ali, 

    You can do what Heather said below or you can create 2 hidden sessions with the proper times, set them as "Closed" so that it's hidden.

    Create 2 custom buttons on the website: 
    Add to Calendar - Day 1 (insert the custom data tag that you've created for session day 1)
    Add to Calendar - Day 2 (insert the custom data tag that you've created for session day 2)

    Hope this works for you.
