Add to calendar link in emails

I would like to add a calendar link in my emails for "save-the-date" posts. First of all is this possible? I know it can be done with event templates, but I use a customized email template on a regular basis that I would like to use the link. I looked at previous posts by CC users and this has been requested since 2012. Can someone help me out with this? Much thanks!

Hello @SNIP ,

 

At this time ICS files aren't able to be uploaded into our system. I've tagged the relevant service request to your account, so if and when the engineers have an update regarding the request, you'll be notified.

 

That said, the easiest workaround would be to use the RSVP action block in an email (Email Plus feature). The thank you page that triggers from RSVP'ing will have an ICS link generated for the date, time, location, etc. that's entered into the block, which your contacts can click to download.

Thank you! I appreciate your feedback and tagging the request to my account. I will investigate the RSVP action and see if it meets our needs.

Please add the ICS file functionality. The RSVP feature does not work well for the type of campaigns we send out.
