I would like to add an event calendar to a weekly newsletter to show recipients upcoming events. The event calendar is on a website and ideally I'd like to pull events from that automatically and have them appear in a block on the e-mail.

 

Thanks,

Kira

Hello @ArthurR3 ,

 

You can add a calendar to your email in table form, or by simply inserting an image. You can either have it as just an image on its own, or have it link to your webpage where they can find more details about particular events. Otherwise, RSS feeds aren't available in the email builder, so something pulling live info from a site's calendar isn't going to be possible.
