Upload an ics file

Upload an ics file

Is there a way to upload an ics file? I'd like our readers to be able to click on a button entitled "Save the Date", which would then download an ics file for them to add to their calendar.  I have not been able to determine how to do this. Is it possible? (I do not want to create an event. This would just be in an e-mail).

Thanks, Stephanie

This hasn't had a bump in about a year so it's time.  Seriously, let me upload .ics for people to click and add to their calendars.  The workarounds are a pain, not everyone has access to host the .ics online and the Eventbrite option is cumbersome.

Also here to bump this request. All I want is to be able to attach an .ics file to a button and not include an entire RSVP block. I also don't want to have to create a new webpage on our website in order to host the link (Wordpress gives me nightmares) or go through Eventbrite because it's a needless step. Other email platforms include .ics file compatibility as part of their basics, so please just give us what we want and not all these unnecessary "workarounds".

bump for the ridiculousness.
