Please give users the ability to customize the content in the "Add to Calendar" .ics file that registrants can download and add to their iCalendars. This functionality is important, especially now that many companies and organizations are hosting webinars/online meetings.
Currently, when registrants download the .ics file, the copy in the auto-generated invite contains the link to register for the event. Why include this link to register when they've already registered for the event? Instead, we should be able to copy and paste the link to the online event (usually a Zoom, Webex or online meeting link) as well as the login information (access codes, meeting numbers, etc.)
Thank you so much for this feedback. I'm sorry if this is creating confusion for your registrants whenever they click the "Add to Calendar" link and the calendar entry provides them the direct Event URL instead of just the online event URL. This is how it's currently set up but we will be happy to look into giving options for online events to make this modification. Until this feature is available, I do have a couple of ways on how they can get to your online session's link:
1. You can add it to your Landing Page as a link in one of the blocks (this way they see it when they click the calendar link)
2. You can add it to your confirmation email and page. Here's the FAQ on how you can do that: Add Link to Confirmation Page or Email

I recently sent out an RSVP message and found out after sending that when they clicked the "add to calendar" link (below) from the confirmation page, the time was off by an hour.
My event is at noon the .ics that is downloaded added it at 1pm.
I am sending from CST so I'm assuming this is the issue. Either way, this is a bad situation if people are adding the event to their calendars and not noticing the time is off. I'll have to send another email to them with an updated .ics explaining the issue and will not be able to use the RSVP function until resolved.
That link should me removed until the issue is resolved.
Just had the same issue today. STill no idea on how to fix it. Sad.
Agree - very frustrating work around - as is the inability to send automatic reminders and/or to resend to those who didn't register
4 years later and still no fix...
still doesn't appear to be fixed.
