Meeting reminders/invitations

I would like to send out my monthly e-mail with dates in it that people can click and have added directly to there outlook or g-mail calendars just like the meeting invitations I sometimes get or the appointment messages that I receive. Does anyone know how to do this?

Re: Meeting reminders/invitations

Hi,

 

You can easily use an "Add to Calendar" link if you use our Event Marketing product for invitations to your meeting. This appears on your Event Invite and on the Homepage.

 

This is not something that is built into the Email Marketing product. What may work is if you offer a .ics file for download. You would need to host the .ics file somewhere on the web using your own website or a free hosting site like Mediafire.

 

I'll submit feedback on your behalf to see if this is something we could add to Email Marketing in the future.

 

Thanks,

Jarrad

Re: Meeting reminders/invitations

Avrohom N. P-454417801,

 

Thank you for your question.

 

At this time, this feature has not been added to our Email Marketing product.  However, you can use the process below to create a link to an item on your email program's calendar and share the link so that others can save the item to their own calendars.

To share a link to your calendar item:

1)  Save the calendar item as an ICS file:

  • Google Calendar
  • iCal
  • Outlook
  • Lotus Notes

2)  Host the ICS file on your website or use a third-party file hosting service.

3)  Copy the URL to your calendar item from your website or hosting service.

4)  Add the link into your Email (as you would a webpage or blog).  Visit for more information on adding the link.

I hope this helps!  If you have any additional questions, or if you just need some help, please feel free to respond to this message with the details, or call our Support Team directly at (866) 289-2101. Our hours are Monday-Thursday 7am-11pm ET, Friday 7am-9pm ET,  Saturday & Sunday 10am-8pm ET.
