I'm wanting to integrate a Google calendar of events as a regular feature in my monthly newsletter. I use one of our templates modified...anyone know what to do?
Sorry, can't be done. Nothing can be embedded in email except pictures. This is not a Constant Contact limitation. What you could do, is make a screen capture of the calendar, put that picture in your email, and link the picture to the Google calendar.
Yes - I'm doing a fund raising e-mail and want to give the option to remind them to donate at a later date - it would go into their calendar.
Excellent question. At this time there is no standard for calendar links. The one that CTCT uses for their event marketing is iCalendar (.ICS) which is the closest to an Internet standard as there is and as far as I know only works with Outlook. What is possible is for you to create the event in Google , Yahoo, etc and then use the URL for the events from those calendars and import those links into your newsletter. You would end up with multiple links though but they would cover Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo etc..... Tony Clique Marketing & Consulting 2009 Constant Contact All Star
I'd rather drive people to other parts of my site, such as more details about something I write about in the email. For years, I've been copying/pasting my calendar from our website (www.lchs912.org) into Constant Contact, and I'm sick of how much time it takes. I wish I could embed the list version of the calendar we have on our website into the email, just as I was able to embed it into Wordpress.
Did you finally found a solution to embed the Google Calendar? I have been trying to do the same thing without success :S
